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?


  1. Very pretty, love that brown fabric you used

  2. Will he wear it to the wedding? LOL

    Lovely purse!
