l made this for my Husband to store his current crochet projects and crochet hooks. Since this was my first time making this, it took me longer than an hour. Now that I am comfortable with the pattern, I'm sure an hour is more than enough time to complete the bag. When the bag comes together it looks really cool. I got the patchwork fabric at Joann Fabrics. You can buy it by the yard and it is all one consecutive piece. It's a neat way to get the patchwork quilt look without all the hard work. The pattern is not my own, but you can find it here.
