Our designer for May is ChrisW Designs! This lovely Australian sells PDF purse patterns that are loaded with detailed instructions, photos, and illustrations on how to make your own unique handbag. The great thing about her patterns is not only her attention to detail but they are also downloadable - no waiting for the mail to come! She also runs a blog that has lots of helpful information such as how to install grommets, bag making tutorials, and even free patterns! Her blog and her latest free pattern (The Coco) can also be found on our free bag pattern page.
