Karen This is my first Swoon pattern, & I was so impressed with the clear, well-written instructions and illustrations. The small Denver is perfect for a wallet, glasses and miscellaneous small stuff. My 8″ tablet is a snug fit. The zippers add a fun accent. I’m looking for my next Swoon pattern!

Rebecca – This bag is a fan favorite and making it, it’s easy to see why. It goes together easily, the directions are clear, and if you are a visual learner there are 2 different videos on YouTube that will get you through it. The bag is very cute and the small version would be great as a child’s backpack.
