I tried making kanzashi with very mixed results last year (see the photo at the bottom of this post) but I recently found a great book in the library and thought I'd give it another go. I definitely need practice - but this was a great improvement and it helped that the instructions this time were in English!
Then I was given this lovely book for my birthday ... more Japanese-inspired things to add to my To Make list.
I've been toying with the idea of making temari for a while and there are also some lovely wee dolls in here that don't look too difficult. There are however some extremely ornate and intricate projects in this beautiful book that I may only dream about making!
