Cool Reader Projects!

I've been meaning to share some cool stuff from the Kanzashi In Bloom Flickr group. Creative people from all over have been posting insanely cool projects. Makes me want to go back and write the thing all over again so I can include them!

Kanzashi Vintage Purse

For example, this cute upgrade of a thrift-store handbag by Suzy Spence, who writes GeorgiaPeachez.


Here's an awesome Kanzashi for Fall, rendered in corduroy, by Forever Tonight.

Hana kanzashi necklace

I love this combination of tiny Kanzashi and pearl dangles! It's made by Maricy, of Mirabella Designs. (Follow that link - she's made all kinds of pretty Kanzashi.

...And Cathe Holden has been doing some freaking amazing Kanzashi projects lately. Look at this flower with names printed in the petals! She has a how-to for this on her blog, Just Something I Made.

She also blogged recently about making Kanzashi from thrift-store purse leather, and creating a custom button center. Cuh-razy amazing. She has a how-to for that button as well.

Please keep them coming, my friends! I love seeing what you've made!
