IITBS-- Chris W Designs Giveaway





Today's giveaway is brought to you by Chris W Designs. Chris W Designs offers designer style handbag patterns that allow for easy customization and professional results. I have always been a huge fan of Christine's patterns and the details that go into each of her designs. 


Her wide variety of patterns fall into two categories of patterns; her "Easy Street" patterns are designed to be quick and easy sews that are perfect to whip up to sell for markets or last minute gifts. The patterns are designed to be shorter for those who don't need a long list of instructions to make a bag. The other patterns fall under her "core" range and these are great for those who love LOTS of visuals and step by steps and are more like an e-book than your typical PDF patterns. This is perfect for those who need a confidence boost, as although the directions may seem lengthy, they directions are broken down step by step in such a way you will be able to create something you may have never thought possible!

Check out some of Christine's amazing designs: 





The City Slicker comes in your choice of difficulty, the intermediate and advanced. You can buy either pattern from her shop, or buy the bundle and pick your fave.



The Gizmo garage is a unique take on your traditional laptop pattern and the pattern features 3 sizes designed to fit a variety of laptop sizes.




The Lunar collection was previously a featured pattern in the Bag of the Month Club but is now available as a stand alone pattern in Christine's shop. It comes in 3 sizes: small, medium and large. The small is perfect for your every day handbag and the large is great for a weekender or duffel bag. 

In addition to her amazing line of patterns, Christine is also a designer for the Bag of the month club, which is a super fun subscription in which you get a brand new pattern each month from 1 of 6 incredible designers. You can get more info here. Bag lovers should also check out Christine's blog for a ton of helpful hints, tutorials and resources for bag making. 

Now for the giveaway!!! One lucky winner will receive a 30 dollar shop credit for the Chris W Designs pattern shop. With such a variety of designer patterns, you will find some that are exactly what you are looking for!

I have sewn a few of her patterns. They are very well written and I have not had any problems. I was a member of the bag of the month program a couple of times. Thank you!

Some great tips here for sewing straps! Looking forward to trying some out.

I am in love with Chris's BOMC pattern from June 2016 and can't wait to get mine done. Slowly gathering materials as time and budget allow, and hope to assemble soon!!

I actually have Chris W's Penny Inn on my to-do list right this moment. Never made an wallet or bag, but the instructions and directions are so thorough that I'm not too worried about being a complete newbie.
