I loved Pretty Little Rainbow's Tudor Rose Bag http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359911.0 and felt that I needed to try it out. I didn't know if it would work, but I decided to make it into a hat as well.

I was so positive about how I was going; cut out the flowers, fused the batting and assembled the flower. Then I realised I had no idea what I was doing.
To make it more simple I only made one side with the rose (It also saved A LOT of fabric).
I also made simple straps and the button instead of zip (I was originally going to do the clasp but I didn't have access to one)
I broke a needle on my machine, and then hand sewing broke two more needles.

Used Canadian smocking as the pattern suggests. I've never smocked before so it was a lot of fun learning.
* I've fixed the scrunched up section on the right*

The bag is actually quite small, so if I try this again (which I'll probably do soon) I'm definitely enlarging it.

And the hat (or headband).

I found a tutorial for diamond smocking, which I kept messing up so I finally located "honey comb" smocking directions and after a few hours of trying and unpicking I successfully created the middle of the flower.

I initially was going to make the hat with both the large and small petals, but decided to stick to the small only. I'll probably play around with a bigger one later. I guess I'll have to have interfacing or stiffen the material for that.

I had a blast making this  Grin

Looks really good!  I'm tempted to try this bag every time someone posts their results.

i love the color!! it looks great! you did a very nice job! the headband/hat is a cute touch also!! i found this pattern, and thought about only doing one side also. but, haven't gained the confidence to do it yet! i still need to pick up some fabric. i wondered how bulky it would with all the petals. I'm no pattern-maker, but was trying to figure a way of altering/cutting it so it wouldn't be so bulky/heavy.

Thank you.
I say go for it. I'm a beginner and had made a total of 4 pojects bedore this, you can just adapt it as you go.
I love how the bag turned out. I'd like to remake the centre of the hat though, work it into a better circle.

jlh326, The finished product isn't bulky.
I used  cavalier gaberdine which was a medium weight. It also had no stretch, which I highly recomned.
I used fusable batting as well which was only 5mm think.
My machine could manage putting the petals and leaves together easily. Adding the small flower onto the larger one did require hand sewing.

Edit:  use embroidery thread for the smocking.

Hi Chrisi,
savvyseams is gone but you can find the pattern through web archive.
and instructions

This bag doesn't hold much. My purse doesn't fit, but a coin purse, mobile and keys would fit.
