Awwwrest ME?

Little Mona may be criminally cute, but her artistically inclined mother, Mieko Bystedt, is the one who knitted the "Chanel" bag below.  Judging from the wish list on Mieko's blog -- and authentic details like the hot pink lining -- she's a fan of the real thing as well.

But will the branded baby become a career counterfeiter, a Chanel connoisseur, or a victim of consumer ennui?  Time will tell....

UPDATE:  Mieko wishes to assure all readers that she is "fully aware of the problem of counterfeiting in the world today" and that all of the designer items she personally owns are authentic.  The "Chanel" bag was knitted for her daughter's personal use only.
