Sew your own Fendi Baguette – the Mezzo Punto

fendi-baguette
Remember the Fendi Baguette you could paint yourself? Well, this year they’ve gone one better with a bag you can SEW yourself. The Mezzo Punto is a canvas bag which comes complete with needles, threads and patterns (or you can create your own design, if you prefer) to allow you to decorate it yourself. All you have to bring to the party is yourself, plus the skill to actually make something you’d be willing to carry around.

The Mezzo Punto will be available from this month as a limited edition. No word yet on price, but given that it’s essentially a canvas bag, we’d like to think it’ll at least be less than a normal Fendi creation.

What do you think, readers? Would you buy something like this, or do you prefer your designer bags to come ready made?

    Wow, next there’ll be the bag you can sew together yourself from a collection of pre-cut bits of material plus fixings…

    That looks pretty ready-made to me. You’re just drawing on it with embroidery instead of markers.

    Eh, honestly I have a whole rant about things like this, but I’ll save it and just say: lol like anyone who could afford to buy this can actually use a needle and thread! XD

    As a fiber freak, I have to say… One would not “sew” that bag. One would embroider it. Slight distinction.

    I’ll go for ready made, since me + sewing usually = A lot of pain for me.

    What’s the use of spending a huge amount of money (i guess, since the other one was pretty expensive) on something you have to do yourself?

    Bah.

    Looks very juvenile..you might as well take an old bag and embroider it with unicorns and butterflies
