The CWD Bag Mag

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


The CWD Bag Mag Edition #3

I’m so excited to be releasing the third edition of the CWD Bag Mag. This month seems to have just flown by! I blinked and here it is, time for another Bag Mag and I have to say there is some pretty cool stuff in this edition!

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!

Machine Reviews

Each edition we will review a different sewing machine.

Website Chit Chat

Do you need a website? We will explore a different website option available to you in each edition. It’s a jungle out there!

Bag Maker Stories

Interesting articles by bag makers, just like you!

The CWD Bag Mag – So Much More & 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. Daryl of Patchouli Moon Studio shares her thoughts in a sewing machine review of the Vintage Kenmore 158 Series.

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! There is even a free printable Hardware Inventory sheet to help you keep track of your hardware supplies! There is space to record the type, size, quantity, colour, price, purchasing details and even add a photo. You can build up a whole file full of records, so you always know what you have and where you got 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 Gizmo Garage! I am retiring this awesome laptop/tech bag because I have found it is just as much effort to revamp a pattern, then it is to design a new one but not nearly as much fun!

So, while this pattern does feature my older PDF formatting and document styling, along with hand drawn pattern pieces (hence the reason I am retiring it) 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!

Gizmo Garage

So yes, The CWD Bag Mag comes with a Bag Making Magazine AND the Gizmo Garage pattern, all for the same price as The Gizmo Garage has been retailing for on its own. It’s a great deal and awesome value for money!
