Made my first one within 24 hours after ordering. It came together pretty easily, and I love the pleated pockets. This was my first time making something with pleats, and it worked just fine. I love the finished project, and it held everything just the way I wanted. I used scraps of fabric from other projects, so I recycled both the fabric and the can.
