  1. Pick your fabric cotton is best. If you use batiks remember to get a sharp needle since the weave tends to be tighter than regular quilters cotton.

  2. I like to starch my fabric to give nice crisp edges, although this isn't necessary, I do recommend it highly.

  3. Find a circle template. I use the tops for mason jars. For my small flowers about 2 3/4 of an inch across and the larger flowers I make about 3 1/4 across. FYI: The size of your template is approx the same width of your finished flower.

  4. Draw out circles for your petals. Small flowers I like 8-10 petals and larges ones I like about 12 for nice fullness.

A nice cute flower that is so different from the others and so quick and easy to make this tsumami flower pin. I would not just use it as a pin as this flower can be used for many different things hair bow ,on a headband using a variety of different flowers,purse, wrist cuff or anywhere you want. I can already invision this flower made. Anyone else like these?

Why is this called a Tsumami Flower Pin? Was it designed to sell to raise monies for tsumami victims?

Tsumami Kanzashi its a japanese style fabric flower traditionally worn by Maikos. It has nothing to do with tsunami.
