Ruched Happy Bag

My brother in law is getting married the beginning of October.  I've decided to wear a green one shoulder dress with brown accents.  I have earrings and a bracelet and shoes and have ordered a wrap from ebay.  The only thing missing was a purse, and that's when I remembered that I won a Ruched Happy Bag pattern from Amy at During Quiet Time.   I was a little nervous to take this on because I had never done a zipper before, but I think it turned out quite well!  A little crooked here and there, but since I'm still a fairly new sewer I'll let it slide...

I wanted to make the lining fabric fun and slightly more upbeat than the outside.  It's all the same colors as the main outside fabric, just in a bolder pattern.

I showed it to Mr. Mouse and he was confused and didn't know quite what to do with it...

Maybe I'll have to make him one of his own?
