A little while ago , some people on craftster spotted a ridiculously overpriced fendi purse. being the economical types ( cheap) , alot of us attempted to re-create this purse.








Now , the first one i made , I tried to copy pretty much how the original was , its all knitted to the basic bag was easy enough to reproduce , then added ruffle , I cord and a leather strap from a old leather belt.

Pretty nifty huh !












As a second attempt , I used teh same basic bag shape again , thsi time though , I changed to a knitted strap , lined the bag , and added a button hole and vintage button. This is much more my style.......

Im happy with the way this turned out
