Gabbie's Grove

  • Gabbie’s Grove is a super cool foldover bag which you can use as a tote or fold it over and use as a crossbody bag or put your arm through the Top Body Strap and use as a large clutch.

    You can even wear it as a backpack just by looping your adjustable strap through the Top Body Strap for a foldover backpack or the Handle Straps for a full tote backpack.

    However, this foldover is not your ordinary rectangular flat foldover bag as it has a super cute and unique shape which gives you a super roomy main compartment.

    On the exterior back you will find a phone or key slip pocket for quick access and on the front, a zipper pocket which is hidden when you fold your bag over.

    Two magnetic snaps close your main compartment to keep everything nice and secure.

    Finished size: Approx. 36cm (14”) W at widest point X 38cm (15”) H when unfolded or 23cm (9”) H when folded X 10cm (4”) D at the base.

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!!
Thank you!
