    I love this bag! It is the perfect size and it sews up really quickly. The slip pocket on the front is genius and really adds to the character. I will be making many more of these! Thank you for the great pattern!!

    I absolutely love this bag, the pattern is so easy to follow, and the finish product looks stunning. I made a travel set, consisting of the levi utility bag, the donna vintage bag, and the Dakota tablet clutch. All in the same matching fabrics, they look very professional.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag. Was easy to make and has inspired me to make more bags. And to think all of my bags will be one of a kinds because of my fabric and hardware choices. I’ll never see anyone else with MY BAGS. Thank you Swoon. Keep them coming. I just ordered some more and can’t wait to make them.
