Adventures in felt kanzashi - part 7

My felt kanzashi adventures has been a lot of fun but I have to say this one has to be my favourite so far.

The iris kanzashi!

I posted it a while back but here are some nicer pictures.

Love how the felt leaves curl.

And those little yellow highlights are just perfect.

Now that I have finally got some nice pictures this flower is finally for sale!

Adventures in felt kanzashi - part 6

Time to look to the future and think about Christmas.

Yes Christmas, it is 5 months away but then again wouldn't it be good to start thinking about presents so you can get them out of the way and not join the annual scrum.

So for me Christmas is about family and food, mainly food but there is one thing that always reminds me of Christmas and that is poinsettia.

So one just needs a poinsettia kanzashi.

I haven't made them before because I had such a hard time finding the right petal shape for the leaves of the poinsettia.

However like all things, I had a little inspiration and voila!

But a poinsettia is not a poinsettia without the green leaves to I add them on as well.  #

I am quite pleased.
