So if you are an avid Instyle Reader like me, you already have see the article in the September Issue about the "latest" trend in bags.

Mixing Cabled Knit/Crochet with modern shapes and leather.

I got a little chuckle out of it, because... well, duh.

But then I looked at the prices they go for, and I nearly fell off my seat.
Check it:

Valentino: Jeweled Crocheted Hobo $2350

Valentino: Knit Hobo $1950

Bally: Wool Studded Bag $795

Margaret Nicole: Large Wool Tote $265

Man, its just funny. We crafters are so cool and ahead of these trends, and best yet, we know how to make it for nothing!
