WIP: the manufacturing of purses

So, my wedding is now under two years. That means, I need to make some $$ green $$. I decided to "manufacture" clutches, purses and such to sell as a ... get this... "wedding fundraiser." However, I've got a lot of awesome ideas for really cute stuff. It's gotta be better than taking an extra job and, *yikes,* bagging for a grocery store. I can let my imagination run free. God knows I have a lot of ideas to get out of my head from those late sleepless nights. Does anyone have this same problem-- trying to fall asleep, but you can't because your creativity kicks in around that time?? I signed up for Etsy, just in case I decide to sell online, but I don't think i'll have to do that. My mom works with a lot of women, and they love the bags I come up with. *Cha-ching!*
Here's a WIP:

I'm thinking of doing red silk for the liner. It's still up for grabs. I was going to go for a white and red striped liner, but I'm really into the silkyness, since the top has silky ribbon.
The Bag isn't even sewed up yet, or blocked.

Ok, so as a side note, I'm thinking about doing something like this-

I was thinking about combining the lacey pattern from the "butterfly" from Rowan, and adding fingers. I was watching "Superman Returns," and the lady that is with Lex Luther in the beginning wears these light black lacey finerless gloves. I would add those fingerless elements and make the cuff flare out a little more than the picture.

What do you think?
