Polka Dots Are "In"!

I read it somewhere, so it must be true!  I made myself a new fall bag with these wonderful fabrics.I used my current favorite pattern, the Margo bag by Lazy Girl Designs.  I made it in a mini version -- it's only nine by twelve inches.  This time I made the straps the same size as the full size bag and I'm really happy with that decision.
I used o-rings instead of d-rings for the straps so they would go with the dot theme and I used the stripe that is part of this fabric line for the piping around the front pockets.

For the inside pockets, I used another fabric from the same line -- my daughter calls it "lightning fabric."  So now I am sartorially au courant (something that really keeps me up nights worrying.)

OMG. When you're done using this one and have moved on to the new and inmproved winter purse, can I take this old, out-of-date fall one off your hands? :)
