Levi Utility Bag

(10 customer reviews)


This pattern has been retired and is no longer available for purchase.

Levi is a small bag with enormous space! This bag is made of heavy duty duck cloth, with four main outer pockets and a huge main compartment. At 14″ wide, it’s great as a tool or ammo bag. It also has a very large zippered opening and is reinforced to carry heavy objects.

    What an awesome bag, easy to print, and cut pattern, easy to follow instructions, what a blessing. Great bag for over night travels, that will impress anyone. every time I look at my bag, Its hard to imagine I made it.

    I made this bag initially for the hubby, but he “doesn’t carry bags,” so it became a diaper bag for his cousin. It is a sturdy bag that is bigger than I expected! This bag goes together quickly, and is easy to put together. This was my first experience with Swoon, and I’m glad I found them!

    What’s great about Levi is that it’s a simple enough shape that you can use whatever fabric you want to personalize it for the end user. In canvas and “non-girly” prints, it makes the perfect man bag. As always, the directions are easy to follow and the construction is simple and straightforward.

    I made my husband an ammo bag to take hunting with this pattern… It opens up HUGE inside when unzipped! My Dad requested one to take on small road trips too… Perfect man bag!

    I made the Levi for my dad to use when he goes on his sailing trips. He says it’s the perfect size for his gear and loves that fact I was able to make it using waterproof fabric.

    Levi is a fantastic pattern! I made him as a dance/exercise bag and he’s the perfect size: big without being heavy, and super-easy to access the contents. I interfaced some quilting cotton for the outside pocket and used duck for the rest, and he’s still sturdy and able to hold a ton of stuff. (He doesn’t seem to mind pink flowers, either.)

    The only problem is now that people have seen this bag, everybody wants me to make them one!

    Highly recommended and please consider amending the pattern to include Levi in different sizes–I could also use one just a bit larger for someone else, but I’m not mathematically-inclined enough to figure out how to enlarge the pattern.

    Yay, Levi!

    This was a straight forward pattern to make this bag. It was an easy make and I love how it turned out, even for a beginner sewer!

    My husband adores his Levi bag. He takes it hunting and says it is perfect. I’m going to be making many, many more.

    I just love all of the Swoon Bags. The Levi is manly enough for my husband to carry around, as long as I don’t use bright pink fabric, and big enough to carry just about anything you can think to put in it. I made it as a diaper bag for my sister-in-law for a present and she loves the outside pockets and the room inside.

    Levi was my 3rd Swoon Pattern and honestly he scared me a bit 🙂

    I love Swoon Patterns and how detailed the directions are. I don’t know why I was scared because Levi boy was great!!! Alicia is very detailed and super helpful if anyone has any questions on her bags!

    I made this bag for my hubby to carry his running stuff around, but it’s such a large bag – the options of how to use Levi are endless!!!
