New Purse

I've been wanting a new purse lately. I even stopped in a local shop that has knock-off purses. They were cute but didn't find one that wanted to go home with me. I saw a cute one this weekend but it was white and white isn't a fall color so I left it on the shelf too.

This morning I searched a bit on the net to find knock-off purses. After perusing a few, I felt hopeless. Will I ever find the perfect purse in my price range? I want one that is cute, has straps that will go over my shoulder, is shallow, and is big enough to carry all my crap (and some of the kids' too). Right now my purse is falling apart and is tall/deep so I feel like I'm constantly digging to the bottom to get to things.

As I was searching, I thought that maybe I should just make the one I want. Of all the things I have to do in the next few weeks, do you think I could find fabric and make a new purse?

okay, so where is the "knock off

I've been having the same problems I can't seem to find a reasonably priced purse.

Hey Tammy, my absolute favorite purses are made by Fossil. They're often sold in Gottschalks. Sometimes you can find them on sale, but generally they're not too expensive if your willing to invest in a well made purse. I just love their colors, the material and the styles. Here is the Fossil website, www.fossil.com, they are also at zappos.com with free next day and return shipping. Anyway I know that it's a personal choice, but maybe this will help!

Thanks for visiting via BATW the other day. How cool you grew up near the cows. I was shocked to see that many cows when we were driving north for vacation! :)

I haven't found any I can love lately, either. :( I don't have time to make one (but I do have time to scrap- next date September 27)... There are a couple of great knock-off stores down here... Two birds, one stone. :)

Have you checked Etsy? If you can find someone who makes purses in the style you like and a fabric you like they will often work with you to make it "just right".
