Bella PDF Pattern

(1 customer review)




This is a NEW version of the Bella pattern, which is the best of both the original Bella and Bella II. It’s revamped and modernised and comes with all new pattern pieces and totally reworked instructions, inline and up to date with current CWD PDF styling and format!

Bella is also included as a BONUS in CWD Bag Mag Edition One and that is available HERE if you would like to check that out!

The Bella is not only practical, it’s roomy and fun with loads of pockets! Bella comes with two zippered pockets and two exterior side slip pockets for your phone or keys plus a front exterior pocket divided into two slip pockets. Complete the pocket ensemble with the addition of Pocket Supplement A on the inside, if you need some extra organization or are simply pocket obsessed like me!

Finished bag size = Approx. 31cm (12¼”) X 25cm (10”) X 10cm (4”)

The PDF pattern for Bella has 45 pages of step by step instructions which include 113 full colour photos.

The pattern comes with written printing instructions as well as video instructions on downloading, saving, and printing for both a PC and Mac.

Pattern pieces are included for both shaped and rectangular pieces, as well as cutting measurements for rectangular pieces, so you can choose your preferred cutting method. Both Metric and Imperial measurements are included!

PLUS, a TEXT ONLY version of the instructions (10 Pages) is available separately, for printing purposes. This is great should you not need or wish to print all the photos! Simply refer to your electronic versions for photos if needed! Saves on ink!
