At Sew Modern Bags we really love this designer. Swoon patterns produces very detailed patterns and tutorials at very affordable prices. There is an excellent Facebook group you can join to share your bags, and get tips and help with any of the patterns if you run into any questions. Not only that, but the finished bags are always stylish and practical. You simply can’t get any better than Swoon!
This is the Brooklyn Handbag & Traveler Bag which is classic and professional with a downtown edge. This bag combines high-end detail with a practical functionality. The extra long zipper opens wide for easy access while the side clips provide its stylish figure. This bag features an optional removable shoulder strap and interior zippered pocket. There are two sizes included in the pattern, as follows:
- Handbag: 11″ by 7″ by 5″
- Traveler: 16″ by 10″ by 7″.
There are options and instructions included for using either fabric or leather/vinyl for the accents and handles for the bag. It looks great with either.
