Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, pretty much
Were the instructions easy to follow?

Easy to sew, nice result and uses smallish scraps of fabric to good result.

This version I made as per her instructions, but I am already considering making a bigger bag.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I want to sew it again, maybe for myself or even for gifts. Imagine it stuffed with tissue paper and wrapped toiletries for a girlfriend.
