peach kushi

my kusudama, originally uploaded by amaebi79.

I am looking for tutorials on this subject and any information you might have as to where to buy supplies for this. I am also wanting information as to which flowers and colors are worn in which months or seasons. I also started a group to try and gather information. If any one knows of a book in English that teaches this, or a tutorial in English on the internet, that would be great, as well.

I am wanting to learn this so I can make some for my daughters' hair. They all have waist-length hair, and I think this is just lovely.

Thanks, sunshine

Kanzashi. Get yours at bighugelabs.com/flickr

tutorials in Japanese that I really like:


  1. In your searches you might also include the word "tsumami" which I believe means to pinch.

  2. Another thought. I found this link through Crafty Ginger through Planet June (they both do tsumami kanzashi). It's supposed to be five videos of kanzashi that are well worth the time to download. I haven't actually watched them.

  3. those are the 5 tutorials i have listed above yes they are nice to watch

  4. youtube turns out to be an awesome resource. who knew?

  5. Hello sunshine
    those kanzashi flowers are gorgeous,iam learning something about,and just have a work in progress too.
    thanks for invite me to your fantastic group.

  6. It ıs like a dream work! Wonderful!

  7. I've been meaning to leave this comment... I keep forgetting to leave it... that first picture looks like it's alal done in buttercream cake frosting. Beautiful!
