I've been dying to try this pattern ever since it came in the mail a couple weeks ago (and also looking for *any* excuse not to work on income taxes), so just took time to make something for me.
I used stuff from my stash, only bought the zipper. It took me part of
yesterday and part of today. I tend to take my time on most projects
anyway, but I did notice someone at Patternreview complained that it
took her all day to make hers. So it's not a two-hour wonder. But you
do end up with an attractive, nicely structured bag and on the whole I
think the directions are well written...which is not to say I probably
won't do a couple of things differently next time.
In case anyone isn't familiar with the pattern, or wants to see a
not-made-for-advertisement-purposes version, here are some pics:
