Anthro knock off purse

Do you know That I love Anthropology? Of course you do! Remember my Anthro inspired apron HERE (if not check it out, it's worth it). I have been coveting this purse for awhile. In fact I bought material about three months ago in preparation to make said purse (don't worry I'll show pic after I stop talking, or writing I guess). Then life got in the way and I had a million other things to do. Well not this week. No ma'am (or sir if a man is reading this, highly doubt that). Being that Mother's Day is Sunday, I said to myself, "self it is time to make you that Anthro purse". Here is a pick of my inspiration:

 When I first saw this purse on Anthropology's website, I thought how easy this would be to duplicate. Then I saw the price tag: 498.00, then down to 288.00 and it's now 140.00. Even at the current price of 140.00, why wouldn't I make my own for ten dollars in fabric. It is so perfect for spring/summer. So without further ado, I give you my version of Anthro's bow purse:

 Do you love it??!! I love it! Dare I say I might even like it better than Anthro's. Gasp! I just love how big I made it. I don't know how big the real version of the purse is, but I am totally digging the size of mine. I will definitely get a lot of use out of this baby.

 You want to make your own?! Stay tuned for the tutorial tomorrow :)

 Thanks for stopping by!
