Sewing: Ruffled Hobo Bag

I need another project...a filler if you must.

You see...I'm a few strips short of fabric on my Scrappy Trip Along Quilt...five to be exact.  I've scoured the internet and have found a few that will work, so now that project is in wait mode...hopefully no more than a week.

And I haven't done a bag in a while...since before the holidays...and Dylan's hobo bag needs to be done.

It must be teal...and the majority of my teal stash is Japanaese fabrics..
   The ruffles will be the teal bird.
   The outer bag panels, zipper panel, and exterior handle will be the teal dot.
   The panel around the bottom will be the teal/purple/pink stripe.
   The inside handle fabric with be the chocolate teal dot.
   And I'm not sure what will be leftover to do the interior...but it will be teal with a few pockets.

While I'm at it, I might just make a bag for me...but mine will be more pinks and grays, using the fabrics I picked up at Crimson Tate in Indianapolis.

Now I just need to find my teal thread and I'm ready to start.  Anyone done this bag before who could share some hints?
