Amazingly beautiful bag ! I really love those catalog squares. I couldn't believe even the metal things were reused ! Great work !
I'm pretty sure Jane Birkin (for whom the Hermes bag was created) would love it (she is a great lady indeed).

I agree with others, this is both hysterical, and a great looking purse. Stick it to the man. Do you have a picture of the original you based it off of? I'm not too familiar with the Birkin.

Some of you have asked for a picture of a "real" Birkin.
