  1. Nikki Velazquez

    Went together very easily. The curved zippers were much easier to do than I expected. Instructions are very helpful and clear.

  2. Amanda Carnes

    This came together with ease. I love the way this drapes when I am carrying it. Always get stopped and asked where I got this handbag.

  3. Robin (verified owner)

    Sheena is a wonderful bag to sew. She is big, but light weight. The pattern is very ease to follow, just as all the other Swoon patterns are.
