A new HANDBAG for Spring

I've been working on this idea in my head for a few weeks now. I loved my last bag so much, but was ready for a new one, and a bit smaller, so I don't have to cart around so much "junk"
All fabric was "in stock" and I used the MOD BAG Pattern from Nikki. That's not the MOD, I hear some of you cry . . .
. . . well, because I wanted a smaller bag, I just folded the pattern in a bit, and took a few wild guesses! Worked out pretty well I think. Test run was today, and I loved it.
KD fabric on the front that I'd been saving for a special project.
. . . and not only did Miss 14 have a birthday blossom, and a teenage girls party, she had this magnificent cake, dripping in chocolate.
