Dare To Be Different!

I've been sewing for as long as I can remember. My mum taught me to sew when I was knee high to a grasshopper! As a teenager I made all my own clothes on mums trusty old Singer treadle machine.

Later I started designing and making collectable mohair teddy bears and patterns. I did that for about 10 years BUT gradually I moved away from the bears and became HOOKED on bags instead!

What FUN! You have something so useful, practical AND beautiful and totally 'YOU' when you have completed your bag. You won't see another one just like it coming down the street!

That is what I like about making your own bags....you start with a pattern (that's where I come in!) and then YOU choose the fabrics and hardware.....YOU decorate them how YOU like them. YOU can make some changes......add more pockets or have less.......The "canvas" becomes your OWN!

I am working on a whole range of different bags and wallets so there are lots more to come. My patterns are designed so that YOU too can produce spectacular results (Despite Murphy's Law (See Video!). Results that are so professional people won't believe that YOU made them yourself! I do hope you stop by from time to time to see how things are coming along!

P.S. Why not join our Facebook Group for plenty of FUN, inspiration and help when you need it! Get advice on where to find supplies and SO MUCH MORE!

Welcome to my shop! At the moment I am selling PDF PATTERNS only, not the finished products.

*NOTICE* ALL my PDF patterns contain loads of photos and instructions and hence LOTS of pages. They are more like a bag making/sewing lesson than a conventional pattern. As such HOWEVER this may mean lots of pages to print! So...NOW ALL my patterns come bundled with a TEXT ONLY version of the instructions for printing purposes, should you not need to or wish to print all of the photos! Simply refer to your electronic versions for photos if needed! Saves on ink!

My Patterns are RATED to help you choose one suitable for you!

EASY - These patterns are super simple and suitable for a beginner.
BASIC - These patterns are relatively quick and easy BUT assume some prior sewing knowledge.
INTERMEDIATE - These patterns require a little more time and patience and assume you have some bag making experience or are an advanced sewer.
ADVANCED - These patterns take a little longer to work through and can be quite challenging and suitable for the advanced bag maker.
EASY STREET - These patterns are specifically designed to be suitable for Make & Sell!

The patterns are my own design and are fully written and photographed by me. They are all tested not only by myself BUT also by a wonderful group of Ladies who help me out, testing and suggesting, ensuring I am bringing you a quality, easy to follow pattern free of errors!

All my patterns pay attention to detail and are VERY comprehensive with easy to understand instructions, in English. Each PDF bag pattern is jam packed with step by step photos to make it easier to understand for those of us who are more ‘visual’. Included are many practical sewing techniques and hints to help you achieve the best you can with each and every project. You will learn techniques you can use in other projects too! They are wonderful tutorials designed to help you learn and expand your bag making skills.

Along with each pattern tutorial comes complete email assistance FREE, should you need any help at all! All seam allowances are included in the pattern pieces, making cutting out easy! PLUS measurements are in both METRIC AND IMPERIAL! WooHOO!

Please contact me if you have any questions at all!

Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.
Information I Collect:
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It:
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
*as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
*when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
*if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure:
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
*Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
*Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
*Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
*Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention:
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU:
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights:
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

*Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
*Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
*Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
*Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me:
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Christine Welsh, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at christine [!at] chriswdesigns.com.
