Tutorial: Kanzashi butterfly headband

Tutorial: Kanzashi butterfly headbandMollie from Wild Olive shows how you can make this pretty kanazashi butterfly headband.  Each butterfly is made from 6 hexagons (2 large, 2 medium, and 2 small) folded and stitched to make layered wings.  You can charm squares or fabrics to make them.  They’re made entirely with  hand stitches and fabric glue, so it’s a good project to take along with you to the park or soccer practice.  She includes a template for cutting the hexagons.  If headbands aren’t your thing, or maybe you just don’t wear hair accessories, this would also make a cute brooch.  Go to Wild Olive for the template and the tutorial.
