Fake Chanel (knockoff) purse, handbag

I saw someone made this on some site I found a while ago and I completely forgot about it till I saw a pink fabric at the fabric store. I bought it thinking ha I could do that bag (who knew I could actually do it). I wasn’t really expecting it to be done right.

Anyway I looked around and the original one is quiet expensive and I don’t see myself paying over $500 for a bag, but I could spend under $5 for the whole thing :-)

I’m new at this and this is my very first bag. I had no pattern to show but I explained the materials as much as I could. I did this by looking at the bag and modified it the way I wanted.

    I love knock-offs. You’re just paying for the name. It used to be they were just such great quality, but my SIL bought a chanel bag and it fell apart in a month. SO we found her a similar knock off that’s still holding up. Kudos to you for making this bag. I think it’s just adorable. I just really love the quilted pink.

    i totally get what chanel sweetheart was saying about the knockoff chanel bag. the point of having a designer product is because of the quality and design thats put into making the bag. and a knockoff defeats the whole purpose. i buy products for quality and the overall design and look of the thing, otherwise its just not worth it.

    look im sorry if i was rude but just really dont like knock-offs, and what i was trying to say is did you make this bag because you really liked the style or just because it looked like chanel?? im not gonna bother explaining anymore because no one cares but i just really hate knock-offs, and i apologize again if i was rude.

    and by the way i cant afford a real one but im saving up and when i get it it will be like magic in the form of a bag

    Hi Chanel sweetheart, What you wrote doesn’t really make any sense??? So what is it are you trying to say? Do u love chanel or you don’t care for chanel. I made this since I can’t afford to pay for a bag that is just it a bag. Isn’t this why burda style is here for to show what we have created. Maybe you can afford such expensive bag but not everyone can. Thanks for your comment but if you’re not going to leave a nice comment then don’t bother leaving one at all :-)

    i know everyone is gonna say im stupid but i dont care. you buy a chanel handbag (or any desiger item for that matter), because they’re chanel, and whoever says its because they just like the logo: cough, LIAR! chanel is magic, its beautiful, and when you wear it you feel like a million bucks and its way more than just an item because its chanel , its got history. and im sounding like a retard right now, but as ridiculous as it is to pay $500 for a bag when it only cost like $100 to make, its , its just chanel people ! just… yes , well thats my opinion, and.. yeah ill just leave it at that
