I'm working on writing up a pattern for this little beauty. It is done with a combination of knitting and crochet, and has very little seaming. The most challenging part of it is the lining, but even that isn't so bad. I'm thinking of making a version with a button flap too for those people who cringe at the thought of sewing in a lining.
I was hesitant about the zipper at first, but now I love it.
Also, there is only ONE end to weave in with this. I think I may be the laziest knitter/crocheter ever!
