Canadian Smocking

 My PA Caroline brought in a round cushion that she had made and everyone fell in love with it so she taught the technique to the class. Above I found this video that shows the technique beautifully.

Japanese Lily Bag

These are the larger versions I have been making at class.
We use two squares 13"x13" right sides together.
Sew all round then fold in corners.
Sew ribbon channel and fold and sew down 
corner flaps.
Draw string ribbon and you have a small gift bag.
