Basic Information
Sew bags, Sew Simple!

Hi there, I am the designer behind the ChrisW Designs bag pattern range. 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, be that a handbag, purse, tote or backpack, ANY Bag! 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 so there are lots more patterns to come. I do hope you stop by from time to time to see how things are coming along!
