Arts and Crafts with Hermes

Do I know my readership or what? Yes, you may now thank me for finding you The Most Perfect arts and crafts project to share with your children. Not only will they have fun printing this out and putting it together, but there is nothing a kid likes better than to see Mommy proudly wearing the result of his/her handiwork; that is something Mommies find much easier to bear when the result is not a macaroni necklace but rather:

An authentic Hermes Kelly bag.

The Birkin is so Twentieth Century, really.

Hermes Kelly Bag Instructions

Pick your design or use coloured paper (use handmade Japanese washi paper if you want to get really fancy), print out the pattern and cut and glue to your heart’s content. These babies are beautiful (I like the cherry blossom one, if I can’t have a plain black calf Kelly straight from the workshop). Kellys have always been superior to the relatively sloppy, vulgar Birkin in my arrogant and not-uninformed opinion, but it is a matter of personal taste: It’s To Catch a Thief versus Je T’Aime; Moi, Non Plus.

To Catch a Thiefje t'aime, moi non plus

From Hermes via Counterfeit Chic.

Or this suit, either.


Even though Sir Bob Geldof is you know, a knight, a champion of African relief, a talented musician, and adopted Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily when her parents Michael Hutchence and Paula Yates passed away, he looks like a cross between a pimp and the Johhny Depp version of Willy Wonka.

Bob, we love you, but I’m not sure we’ll be seeing you in the Celebrity Dad Faceoff anytime soon.

And does not Heavenly look so very much like her late father?
