The pieces for this bag came already cut out, so happily all I had to do was sew them all together. Happy Days.
The one thing that I changed is that the bag in the book has button holes on the straps so that you can adjust them, but I don't really like those anyway - personal preference - so I just found the right length for me and stitched the handle straight on.
I do like this book, it has a good layout and basic instructions to all techniques needed at the beginning, but I do think that some of the projects are a little odd...
My biggest issue to be honest with most of the pictures is that a lot of the materials just clash, but this is something that you can change, as obviously you don't have to use the fabric choice used in the book.
All the pattern pieces are included as well, so you can make all of the projects without having to draw your own. All in all, a nice book with some good projects.
