Boy, do the Japanese know craft or what!!!! Have always loved the sheer beauty of all types of japanese crafts, be it origami,crochet,knitting and now for me its all about Kanzashi. The art of fabric folding, how ingenious,creative and just bloody beautiful. Bought some Aussie made 100% cotton with a french provincial design today and am ready to cut my squares and start folding, of course the ultimate fabric to use would be vintage kimono remnants, just imagine recycling and wearing a piece of authentic Japanese culture.  I will post my first attempt of making these beautiful fabric flowers here soon, so stay tuned......
