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.

I loved Pretty Little Rainbow's Tudor Rose Bag https://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

I've just made one of these bags succesfully, but for the second I was  looking for another pattern for the centre of the rose. I tried "diamond smocking" but that didn't turn out well. Has anyone tried anything else?

Well done.
I like that you used a backpack instead of the elastic arm holes that come with bought wings.
Did it sit well and felt comfortable?

The Weeping Angels creeped me out the most out of all the Dr. Who creatures.
