I love the design of the bag. And as the description says, it a simple but unique looking design. I am a beginner sewer (not a confident beginner but not a "just started" beginner) so I did feel the bag was a bit difficult to put together in the final form (due to the darts, layers, and all the curving). It could be due to my sewing level but at the first 3 reads of the instructions I was still having a hard time understanding them. I spent about 2 hours reading them over and over again and trying to visualize the steps in my head. My advice would be to keep reading until you say to yourself "Ah, okay. I get it now" before you run off to buy materials to make your bag. Still plan to try other bag patterns from this seller. Making my own bag isn't really cheaper but I love the customization aspect.
