Kanzashi Flower PDF Pattern, Kanzashi Fabric Flower PDF Pattern, Easy to Make, Brooch, Pin, Bouquet, Fabric Flower Pattern, Accessories

Kanzashi style fabric flower with a covered button center.

Kanzashi is the Japanese art of folding silk squares into petals. Although this is not the traditional origami-like folds of a Kanzashi flower, it is a super easy way to get the same look and stylish design.

I have taken this beautiful tradition and translated it into something fun, casual and functional for today’s fashions. The flowers look so much more complicated to make than they really are.

You can make it with scraps or groupings out of quilting fun packs. I used cotton, but any suitable weight fabric can be used.

This is just one of the basic styles of this Kanzashi tradition. With these basic steps you will be able to create endless possibilities. Change the covered button center and use vintage buttons or beads. You can make one layer or two. Add a trail of beads and you have a traditional Japanese Kanzashi look. It is up to you and your imagination. Be creative and add some whimsy to your wardrobe.

I use this flower on my “Sew Retro” dress, pocketbooks, as a lapel pin, on headbands and hats, and just as a simple hair bow. The ways to use it are also endless.

Frequently asked questions about OlaJanePatterns

If the pattern has curves or angles you will be provided with a full pattern piece. If the pattern piece is a rectangular or square, then you will be given specific measurements to cut your material along with a cutting chart. All sizes are included on each pattern and cutting chart. If I include both cutting charts and full pattern pieces then that option will be described in the pattern listing.
A PDF pattern is an ebook or tutorial that you can view on your computer or print out from your home computer. My PDF patterns have many pages of pictures, measurements, cutting charts, material and notion requirements and references as to what materials that I used in the samples. Each step of sewing instructions has matching pictures.
If the pattern piece is larger than 8.5” x 11” regular copy paper, then you will be given reference points on each pattern piece so that you can match them up and tape pattern together. Each size line is color coded so you can easily cut out your size. No tracing or wasting tissue patterns. Just print out another copy when you need another size.
