Now to make a flower that I always lived the look. Iris!
I love the colour purple and something about the rotational symmetry is very pleasing to my mathematical mind.
Luckily I ordered a selection of coloured felt as making irises requires three colours, purple, yellow and green.
As normal, I cut the require amount and set about creating the iris.
Unlike the other flowers once the three large base petals are attached, the remaining petals all require a gentle touch. This is due to the fact that each set of three is essentially balancing on each other. However I have been making tsumami kanzashi since 2007 and this has taught me that with a steady hand and patience nothing is impossible and within no time this little blossom came into existence.
Is it not sweet!
