I just saw a tutorial on how to make Kanzashi flowers

My first reaction was - wouldn't these make a really pretty version of a yo-yo quilt?

I also want to show my Granny who can't quilt any more at 93 years old but she does make yo-yo's all the time.  I'm sure she could make these too.  Very pretty even with pattern fabric or solid as shown here.

The one I saw was in an email that I couldn't link or download.

But I googled and came up with a bunch of different ones this one is the closest to the instructions I had (my said to start with 10 squares)

There's also videos on youtube.

I also see there's some kind of tool out there, but it seems simple enough to do without a tool.

These are really neat. I'll have to try making a few. They would make great embellishments on purses or bags.

I saw this same tutorial and could not get the link to work either. They are adorable. I think these are made with felt, but I made these once at a Creative Card seminar and you can use any fabric and they are sooooo easy to make. Espically if you want to mix them with other colors then just one color. I will see if I can find the ones I made and post them.

I believe that the different tools out there are for making different kinds of flowers

 

Here's a link to a few different varieties of these: http://fabricnnotions.danemcoweb.com/shop/search/?keywords=Kanzashi
