The CWD Bag Mag – Edition Two

(1 customer review)



The CWD Mag Bag – Edition Two! This second edition of the CWD bag making magazine is even bigger and more jam packed with bag making content than the first edition. So, if you enjoyed that, you will LOVE this!

You will find bag making hints and tips, Daryl’ sewing machine review on the Juki TL-2000 Qi. There is a new “Share Your Space” where a couple of bag makers, just like us, share their sewing spaces! A designer interview with Diane of Spencer Ogg Patterns.

You will also find additional bag maker interviews, a shop owner interview, and even a free printable “Bag Project Planner” sheet to help you plan your next bag project. A Q & A Section, plus, so much more but I don’t want to tell all and spoil the surprise!

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 Edition came with a Bonus pattern! SO, as I have decided to retire my Abigail PDF Pattern to make way for new patterns, I have decided to provide Abigail as a BONUS pattern with Edition #2. 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!

The Abigail handbag/purse features all the pockets you need to keep you organised.

Featuring 2 cute little front pockets, and 2 side pockets, all closing securely with magnetic snaps. In addition, there are two large outer slip pockets, on either side of the bag.

The roomy main zippered compartment also boasts a secure interior zipper pocket, PLUS two slip pockets, but wait, there’s more, there’s also a pen pocket!

The lovely metal rings, rivets and the use of bag feet give the bag a professional look.

Finished size = Approx. 41cm (16″) X 18cm (7″) X 11.5cm (4½”)

Like with Edition #1, this whole package is AWESOME value and a steal at a $1 cheaper than Abigail was being sold on its own.  (It’s an Advanced Pattern) Why not grab a copy today and sit back with a cuppa and enjoy!
