DIY Tassel Crossbody {Rebecca Minkoff Mini Sofia Tassel Bag Inspired}

This highly coveted Rebecca Minkoff 'mini Sofia crossbody" has been sold out every where I have looked. It stood out to me because of the bright tassels but also because of the whopping price tag- $245! I couldn't justify spending this much money on such a trendy purse so I decided it would be a fun project to try recreating the look. I even convinced my #igbestie (@beingmrsfowler), Megan, of Being Mrs. Fowler blog, to do it with me. 

Megan helped me find a couple of different cognac colored cross body bags. I went with one found on eBay. I liked that this bag could be used as a clutch or worn as a cross body style and I like the double tassel detail. The $9 price tag also sealed the deal. 

Other supplies needed: 
Tassels (I found these on Etsy)
Fishing line (I used what I had, some clear elastic cord)
thin leather strips- I just cut one of the inside strips from the tassels on the purse

I got overly excited with the project and I totally forgot to take step by step photos but I'll just send you over to Megan's blog because I used the same method!

Here is the final result. I think it turned out great! And for $21 I have zero buyer's remorse!

I used it on my birthday as a clutch for dinner and drinks with my girlfriends. It was the perfect complement to by boho look!
