So.....just what are the differences in the old Bella and the new Bella II? Well although the bag looks very similar, pretty much the whole pattern is new and has been re-drafted and improved including the previous interior zipper pocket assembly.
I have added a recessed zipper closure to keep the main compartment contends secure.
The previous 2 exterior elastic side pockets have been omitted and instead, the single front pocket on the old Bella has been replaced with a new COOL front slip pocket design, featuring 4 slip pockets and feature Grommets. However of course, should you not like grommets, the pockets look super cool finished off in other ways too!
The Bella II is a very versatile pattern. It is really up to you how much of the hardware you decide to use as you can see from the following tester pics. Dress it up or dress it down! PLUS if you have an embroidery machine, it is (in Pats words) "a brilliant pallet for embroidery!".

ChrisW Designs will soon be moving to a new website platform for better video delivery and other fun features. Unfortunately as a consequence of the move, all current customer accounts will no longer exist. Please take steps to ensure your files are all downloaded and saved to a safe place on your computer as soon as possible.
Unfortunately I will not be able to consolidate your old account with your new one as there isn't an easy way to move the data over. The only way to do it is very labour intensive. I will however offer a consolidation service for those of you that like to have their files all backed up in the one place. This will be available for request on the new website at US$5.00 for all of your previous pattern purchases. Yes, I can also add those that you have purchased elsewhere as long as you have the receipt or I am able to locate the purchase for you. :)
I do apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you but I do feel the move is in the best interests of serving you better in the future!
NOTE: Those with video purchases will be moved free of any extra charge!!
