It doesn't look too difficult.  If you can knit,purl, and work a cable needle (and if you can't right now, trust me, it's a piece of cake), you can make it.

I'd say just knit a rectangle with whatever cable pattern you might desire.  Knit it to a little over twice what you'd like the depth of the bag to be.  Fold the rectangle so that it has the final depth you desired, then seam up the sides.  Then just whipstitch the short ends to a dowel rod each, and attach a pretty ribbon.

It appears that she has also lined the inside of the bag with fabric.  And installed a snap closure on the lining, to keep the bag shut.

Wow, I'd love to buy one to support her but the price is not good for me.  I don't spend more the $75 on a purse if it isn't leather.  I just can't bring myself to do it.  Besides, I love show off something I have made myself............. although, I have to learn cabling.  So by the time I am done once you calculate time and materials......it'll probably be $120 I spent!

There was a similar post in summer about a purse like this. If I remember right someone knit one in white or wanted to knit one in white. Maybe try doing a search on craftster to see if you can come up with anything.
