I really *heart* this bag! It's a great pattern, and works really well. I chose linen for my bag outer, with some Liberty lawn scraps on the front, Liberty lawn binding, and for the inside pockets I've used a mixture of Kaffe Fasset shot cottons and more Liberty lawn.
The pattern does use a lot of zips, but to great effect. If you're not sure about sewing zips in when you start, you will be by the end of this! I really liked how the bag turns into a round-shaped thing when it's finished, even though it only uses straight seams, and the extra-long top zip lets the bag open really wide.
I chose to stitch the second edge of my binding down by hand, as I wasn't sure I could do it completely neatly by machine.
To me this bag turned out perfectly. Liberty lawn makes anything look good, and mixed with linen it's divine! Try some today!
