The CWD Bag Mag – Full of Surprises!

There are Bag Making Hints and Tips, Website chit chat, Bag Makers Interviews, including a Designer Interview with Diane of Spencer Ogg Patterns. Diane even shares a discount code with us! Valid until the 7th of April 2023. (So don’t dilly dally if you want to take advantage of Diane’s discount!)

There is even some Bag History for you to enjoy. Daryl of Patchouli Moon Studio shares her thoughts in a sewing machine review of the Juki TL-2000QI. PLUS, a brand-new section called “Share Your Space”. I LOVE this section as it’s so much fun to get a sneak peek into the sewing spaces of fellow bag makers!

There is even a free printable bag project sheet to help you plan your next bag, so you can work out exactly what you need in the way of supplies and keep track of your ideas and thoughts for the project! SO handy!

Ah there is so much more BUT I don’t want to spoil the fun….I will leave you a few surprises! 😉


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 BONUS 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 Abigail. I am retiring my Abigail PDF Pattern to make way for new patterns, but she has been such an awesome part of CWD history that I have decided to provide Abigail as a BONUS pattern with Edition #2. She needs to go out with a bang!

Even though this bag pattern features my older PDF formatting and document styling, along with hand drawn pattern pieces (hence why I am retiring this pattern) the results when made up are astounding! Nobody will believe you made this bag yourself!

Abigail - A ChrisW Designs Advanced PDF Pattern

So yes, The CWD Bag Mag comes with a digital Bag Making Magazine AND the Abigail pattern, all for less than the price Abigail would normally retail for on its own. It’s a great deal and awesome value for money! Own a part of CWD history as Abigail will be gone and no longer available. For good!
