    I made this bag for my mom for mother’s day. The pattern was easy to follow. My machine was past its limits trying to see through as many layers as are here in some places, but I made it work. I am very happy with the pattern and the results.

    Fantastic pattern. I love this bag. It’s absolutely one of my favorite Swoon patterns. It comes together nice and simple, and I always get amazing compliments on it.
