I wanted to try this pattern forever and today I finally got brave enough. My daughter has already laid claim to it. LOL
I followed this pattern:

Love, love that fabric!  I can't blame your daughter for wanting it for herself.  Grin
You did a great job on this bag - it looks very well made!

I must say the instructions are very clear when making this bag. She has gotten so many compliments on it wanting to know where she bought it. She loves being able to say you cant buy it!

I just bought the book and want to try this pattern. Was it really difficult? Do you have any tips or tricks?

Honestly the hardest part was picking the fabric. The directions are extremely clear.

I just finished one of these bags yesterday, unfortunately I mailed it before I remembered to take pics. I thought the finished bag was nice looking, but I found it unrulely to construct because of the thickness. The peltex #70 was just too heavy in my opinion and if I were to make this bag again I would use something lighter. I made the shorter handles, but because of the bulkiness, the bag felt awkward under my arm..I dunno, not what I'm use to I guess. I also didnt care too much for the instructions for adding the zipper or attaching the dividers, they were terribly confusing for anyone not familar with what they were doing, luckly I have made a few zippered pouches before. In the end, I think this is the last Amy Butler patterns I'll use. I've made the sling bag as well and the materials lists for both were lengthly and ask for WAY too much fabric and the end results from both the bags werent practical in size or fit for me.
