This isn't my November project!

I know, I know, I have a lot of projects to have finished by the end of the year, and this isn't one of them, but...  It's been a UFO for quite a while, and I finally decided that I needed to finish it before Christmas.  It's the Miranda Day Bag from Lazy Girl Designs.  I think that having a set of designer handles since 2009 or so was part of the push to finally get it done.   I pulled the fabrics for it in May or June, and got it all cut up a week or so later - and, then it sat - and sat...
Yesterday, I thought that maybe I should finally complete it - and I did!  I'm a little surprised at the size of it - I'm really "into" smaller purses these days - having tendonitis in my shoulder, partly from carrying a big purse or bag on that shoulder, didn't help!  Putting pre-formed handles on it takes away the option of carrying the purse over my shoulder - but it's almost big enough to carry my sewing machine in!  Well, almost....  Take a look for yourself!
