It's been a while but i have done something

It's been a while but I have made something.
I bought a couple of weeks ago off the internet a Cath Kidston book called sew not realising it came with a fabric pre-cut handbag so all I had to do was sew it together what a bonus surprise that was,so here it is all finished.
