ChrisWDesigns' Shop Policies


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.

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!
