IITBS- Swoon Patterns Giveaway







Today's giveaway sponsor is Swoon Sewing Patterns. Swoon Patterns are easy to follow, feature clean and professional details and are easily modified but advanced bag makers. The pattern catalog features a wide variety of patterns from beginner to advanced and from wallets to overnight bags. Many of the designs feature professional details such as vinyl and accent pieces that don't make any of these bags look homemade. 

My absolute favorite Swoon is the Betty Bowler, which was recently given a face lift: 


The newest pattern in the Swoon catalog is the Sydney Cross body bag: 






Swoon Patterns is also a contributor to the Bag of the Month Club, which is a subscription that gives you a new pattern each month from one of 6 incredibly talented bag designers. 

The Brooklyn handbag and traveler was the contribution for the previous subscription, and oh my is this bag a STUNNER!



The Swoon blog also offers many great tutorials and sew alongs. There are so many gems for bag lovers here! The Swoon Patterns Facebook group is also a great place to find inspiration, get support and just connect with other bag addicts. This is a great group of sewists, and so many helpful people. 


One lucky winner will receive 3 pdf patterns of their choice from the Swoon catalog. There is certainly so many options to pick and it will be hard to pick just 3!!

I love Swoon Patterns! I feel that for the quality of the patterns, the price is really a deal! I have also seen many beautiful bags made from the free patterns available there. Would love to make a Brooklyn bag someday! I've only made Coraline from their pattern.
