The recent kanzashi making frenzy (Fräulein Nachtschatten started out, then Nachtkatze joined and presented a mouth watering head dress) infected me as well. I'm on sick leave and not supposed to do anything besides being in bed/on the couch and you can not imagine how boring TV and Internet grow after a while... I definitively read as well, but I had to reorder books as I'm running out of new material! As I wanted to do something easy which you can do while watching reruns of old series, kanzashi seemed like a good idea.
There are a bunch of tutorials out there in the Internet; I used this German on that Fräulein Nachtschatten linked to: Tutorial. Making round flowers out of square pieces of fabric seems counter intuitive, but it works! I definitively had a learning curve, but just look at these nice final flowers!
