The CWD Mag Bag – Edition Three! This month brings you another awesome edition of the CWD bag making magazine which is once again jam packed with bag making content. If you love making bags, you are going to love having a dedicated magazine!
You will find bag making hints and tips, Daryl’s sewing machine review on the Vintage Kenmore 158 Series. The “Share Your Space” section is once again full of inspiration for your sewing spaces, with one maker sharing her 5th wheel trailer conversion! It’s AWESOME!
There is a designer interview with Natell and Gwen of Lockwood & Webb. It is an interesting glimpse into just how these two ladies on different sides of the globe became friends, and then went on to work together. Now that’s what I call the perfect synergy!
You will also find additional bag maker interviews, a shop owner interview, and even a free printable “Hardware Inventory” sheet to help you keep track of your hardware. A Q & A Section, plus, so much more but if I reveal everything here, there won’t be a surprise…and we all love surprises!
Remember I am inviting submissions via the submission page section, so you too can be featured in an upcoming edition. You even score a free copy of the edition you are featured in when your submission is accepted!
It’s brought to you in PDF format, so you have it and can read it in seconds. No waiting for the mail to arrive!
But wait! There is MORE! Everyone LOVED the fact that the 1st & 2nd Edition came with a Bonus pattern! SO, as I have decided to retire my Gizmo Garage PDF Pattern to make way for new patterns, I am giving the retiring Gizmo Garage as a BONUS pattern with Edition #3. Remember that while the pattern has my old PDF document styling and formatting as well as hand drawn shaped pattern pieces, the final bag is still AWESOME and something to be proud of when finished! I really LOVE this laptop/tech bag and have been using mine for years. It has so many cool pockets and details and is a fun bag to make as well. There are also three sizes to choose from so you can find the perfect size for your laptop!
The Gizmo Garage comes in three sizes, with plenty of storage pockets to keep you organised! This spacious laptop bag boasts a front flap closing with a hook and D ring, hiding a large exterior slip pocket (perfect for paperwork) that has a smaller slip pocket and pen pocket inside.
There are also two big, pleated slip pockets, perfect for housing your laptop charger and cords. The main opening houses up to a 17” laptop in the larger version of the bag and up to a 15” laptop in the medium version and up to a 13” in the small version.
Please refer to sizing guide included in the pattern to help you choose the correct size for your laptop! This main area is free from any other pockets to protect your laptop from scratches or external damage due to rubbing!
Turn the bag around and you’ll see another padded pleated pocket with magnetic snap flap closure, perfect for your iPad. Comes complete with an adjustable shoulder strap (as well as a grab strap) so you can carry it multiple ways, or just grab and go.
