I Will Try Again!
Over the weekend I worked on my faux Ferragamo Bag. I think my first attempt at this beauty is just OK. I got carried away with the off-white knitted portion of the bag and I need to crochet a larger top, basket-weave, portion of the bag for proper balance. I ended up covering a Target-bought tote bag with copper leather-like handles. I particularly like the curly-cue tassles at the bottom of the bag.
For my second attempt, I'm going to make a smaller version of this bag using Bernat Cottontots for the knitted portion and some stash GGH Raffinesse for the crocheted basket-weave portion of the bag. I will persevere until I get this right! Hmmmm? Maybe $1,650 is a fair price for this purse, considering all of the attention and time I'm giving it!
