Hi. I really like the purses made by The Sak. Has anyone made anything like this before? Here are a couple that I really like. Thanks.

The first link looks like the Fendi bag that a very creative person on this board already designed up.
the second is just a very very basic drawstring bag - done in the round with stripes.  There is no bottom.  All you would do is chain your width you want it, sc in each, 5 sc in the ends... then you just go around and around and around until you get it the width you want... then you do a ch1, dc around to make the eyelets for your simple ch drawstring to be woven through... It is just the stripes you are liking maybe.  It is a very very simple bag - someone out in cyber land probably has that exact pattern already up - it's just the color combos.. which you can figure by counting.

It does look like it is done in a lightweight yarn instead of worsted since the stitches are so small.

I have actually been working on figuring out this bag too!!  I have just started up the sides of the bag.  The ruffle reminded me of a baby bootie that I made because the stitches look to be exactly the same.  Here is what i have come up with:

The bottom is made by crocheting an oval.  Help with this can be found here:

When you have the size bottom you want stop increasing your rounds.  Crochet in the back loop only for one round.  Crochet rounds for as high as you want the bag.  For the ruffle, make a chain and sc for one row.  For the second row chain say ten and sl st in the base of the chain.  Do this for the rest of the row.  Do another row of sc in the loops you made in the previous row.  Shell stitch for the next row.  Instructions for this can be found here:     

You can also join the chain so that this is done in the round so you will not have to sew the ends when you are done. 

Will post pics when done!!
Hope this helps!!

the ruffle can also be made from using the fpdc for a few rows before doing the shells

I think I'm fixing to start working on an imitation SAK.
Except, my favorite is the Pattern Mixer Mini Top Zip in Aquatic Multi:
Just need to study it a bit more then I'll buy my yarns and start on it!

I really like your green bag!  It's very cute.  And I think the ruffly ruffle is great!
