Now you have the pattern, I am guessing you will be wondering where to get the hardware and other supplies - am I right?
For Aussies, I now have a supply shop too! A growing range of Interfacings, Stabilisers and Notions which I myself have tried and tested and use on a daily basis for my bag making. YES Decovil 1, Soft & Stable and a whole lot more! You can find it HERE!
Interfacing SF101 Substitute - WovenFuse I love this stuff so much I have imported it and am selling it here in Aus! It is more than double the width of the SF101 at 45" and is top quality and super affordable!
OK….so here is a list of places to shop which I have compiled with the help of the awesome members of our Facebook Group. I do hope you will find this list useful!

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!!
