About Us

Don't you just LOVE handbags? I know I do and I am TOTALLY addicted to making them! Imagine being able to make handbags and purses that are unique to YOU and exactly the style, colour, size and shape that YOU want them to be?

ChrisW Designs range of designer bag patterns will help you to do just that! Nobody will believe you made them yourself!

A Little About Me
I have a hubby, two daughters, 5 cats, 3 dogs, 3 rabbits, 1 duck and two drakes, 6 chooks and 5 cattle. I live in a lovely peaceful rural area in Northern NSW, Australia.  

Our Cattle


I've been a sewist for as long as I can remember, thanks to my wonderful mum who patiently answered my silly questions! Thanks mum! :)

As a teenager, my passion was making my own clothes....later I went on to design collectable teddy bears and that is when my love of sharing my designs as patterns began. For almost 10 years I not only made the bears BUT made the patterns so others could make them too!

That's when I discovered the real joy of making patterns and the satisfaction you get when someone tells you your patterns are easy to follow and such fun to make! But as the years went by my desire to make bears was replaced with BAGS!

I hope you enjoy making bags from my patterns as much as I have enjoyed creating them! Have fun, and please send me an email to let me know you were here!
