So a LOT has been happening lately BUT I am happy to say that I finally have a new bag pattern to share with you. The Phoenix!
The Phoenix is a stylish handbag featuring exterior side gusset zipper pockets and a quick access phone pocket at the back. The roomy main compartment closes with a recessed zipper pocket.
Inside you will find another zipper pocket. I like to add Pocket Supplement A for some additional slip pockets. There is a removable cross body strap and two handle straps.
Approx. 33cm (13”) W X 28cm (11”) H X 9.5cm (3 ¾”) D.
The Phoenix features unique Gusset Side Pockets:
The ChrisW Designs Signature Phone pocket is discreetly hidden at the back of the bag. You barely know it's there!
The main compartment closes with a recessed zipper:
Inside the roomy interior is another Zipper Pocket. I also suggest adding Pocket Supplement A for additional slip pockets, if you are like me and love pockets!
As usual, my favourite part of the pattern release is sharing my tester photos with you BUT before I do, I want to say a great big HUGE thank you to each one of my testers....without them CWD wouldn't be here! It's impossible to create a totally error free pattern without proper testing and even then, occasionally something slips through no matter how thorough we are... but as I always say, I honestly believe I have THE BEST testers in the industry! You ROCK ladies!! So, let's look at some Tester Photos:
