To get into the millinery course i want to do I have to be interviewed and bring in some works or drawings.
Here is my project:

I made the tudor rose bag pattern from savvy seems and used that pattern to make this. I attached it to a headband, my first thought was it would be put in using a comb but I think this worked quite well.
The smocking is a "honey comb" technique. I original tried diamond smocking, but it didn't turn out at all well.

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.

The bag I made: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370975.0

Aw cute!  Cheesy
I don't think I'd be brave enough to wear it myself, generally speaking. It's kind of a statement piece though so I guess you're not really meant to wear it just to nip down to the shops or whatever - although I bet some groovy people would and could somehow pull that off...
I saw and loved Pretty Little Rainbow's bag as well, I meant to save the pattern and see about eventually doing one with denim cut offs or something but I'm no where near that organised. Your honeycomb smocking looks almost spherical in the photo which kind of makes it more flower-like... does that make sense?

Oh, I like it so much!  I love wearing hats...thanks for sharing, you've inspired me to whip up something similar.

If you can't do it with duck tape...it can't be done!

Cute! I love funky little hate to throw on with cute jeans and a tee.

Lets all go to Jack Taylor's to celebrate!
