I LOVE Dana's tutorials. They teach me how to be a better sewer and to challenge myself.
I love re-purposing projects too because I like making something out of nothing.
One thing that helped me a lot was to cut stuff while watching TV one night. I cut a bunch of things for other projects too. Then on another day I sewed it. Doing it that way I doubt it even took the full 90 minutes. Having everything all laid out and ready while I felt fresh and ready to go helped me get it done it like 45 minutes or less - sewing time. So if you want to make one go to MADE. You won't regret it.
