The CWD Bag Mag

The bag-making magazine you didn’t know you needed – until now!


Introducing the CWD Bag Mag

I’m so excited to be releasing my new CWD Bag Mag. I’ve been dreaming about this project for a long time now but I finally have had the time, and inclination, to stop dreaming and start doing it!

So just what is the CWD Bag Mag exactly, you may wonder. Well, it is a whole collection of fabulous bag related reading and viewing, all bundled into one fabulous little Bag Mag for you to enjoy. 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!

The CWD Bag Mag – Full of Surprises!

There are Bag Making Hints and Tips, a little bit of Website chit chat, Bag Makers Interviews and even some Bag History for you to enjoy. I give you a run down on my sewing machine and what I like about it and what I don’t.

There is even a free printable costing sheet to help you keep track of what you spend when you make a bag, so you can work out exactly what you should charge for it! SO handy!

The CWD Bag Mag – Informative and fun reading

Whether you’re looking to improve your bag making skills, read about other bag makers just like you, or enjoy a little humor. We’ve got you covered! So why not grab a cuppa, (or a wine) and settle into a nice cosy corner and explore!

BUT WAIT! There is MORE!

The CWD Bag Mag also comes with a PDF Bag pattern for you to enjoy! Yes you read that right! A full and complete PDF Bag Pattern! In this edition you will receive the new and totally revamped Bella!

Some of you may own or remember that I have had two different versions of Bella previously. It’s been such a popular pattern BUT many preferred the shape of the original compared to Bella II, so I decided to revisit the pattern and take another look at it!

Both of the earlier Bella patterns have now been retired but the best news is that THIS version is a combination of both! The best of both worlds you could say! The pattern has been reworked from one end to the other with new pattern pieces, new styling (Check out those much more modern side pockets) and complete new instructions with modern construction techniques and up to date CWD PDF styling format.

The NEW Bella Pattern

So yes, The CWD Bag Mag comes with a Bag Making Magazine AND the Bella pattern, all for the same price as Bella would normally retail for on its own. It’s a great deal and awesome value for money!

PLUS for those of you who prefer to follow a video tutorial as they sew, we’ve got that covered too. Tori of Seams Legit will be making a Video Tutorial for Bella, for us shortly. So please do subscribe to Tori’s channel to be notified when it goes live. You can also sign up the ChrisW Designs newsletter or join (if you haven’t already) our Facebook Group where we will share the link on its release.

Still need convincing? Why not hop over to the blog and check out all the wonderful tester versions of Bella and see how versatile this pattern really is!
