Candice: Giveaway, Interfacing and Big Nerdy Delight

Lazies, The arrival of our new pattern Candice is getting closer! She’ll be here soon. It is a big nerdy thrill for me when a new pattern walks in the door and we meet for the very first time. When Mr. UPS man brings that first box in the door, I open it with delicate curious respectful excitement.

Candice shown in ‘Pick a Bunch’ by Nancy Mims for from Kaufman.

I gently open the box top, look in, and gaze upon the stacks and stacks of Girls looking up at me. Taking the first new pattern out of the box is like making the first footprint in a perfect bed of snow or smooth sandy beach.

  10. ozjane — October 10, 2011 @ 8:24 am

    Oh yes, I do like Candice. Smart chic that she is.
    I fear if I do not win her….I can see myself buying the little lady.

  11. Deborah Harmon — October 10, 2011 @ 8:24 am

    Candice looks like the perfect purse! I can’t wait to pull fabrics for her!

  12. Gaycha — October 10, 2011 @ 8:25 am

    I think this will be a very useful and practical bag to have. I have all my supplies and am ready to go when the pattern arrives. Can’t wait!

  13. dottie — October 10, 2011 @ 8:26 am

    Ohhhhhh, Candice looks like she will be so useful and convenient for holding a nice variety of items. Looking forward to meeting her.

  14. Megzaela — October 10, 2011 @ 8:27 am

    Candice looks like a lovely bag. I wonder how hard it would be to adapt it to fit a 13″ macbook air?

  15. Barbara Campbell — October 10, 2011 @ 8:28 am

    Looking forward to trying this new style, Hope to carry my iPad with me in it.

  16. Linda — October 10, 2011 @ 8:29 am

    THIS is what I’m talking about! Candice looks like the perfect bag, even though I thought Margo was the one! (sorry Margo). I have been looking for fabric for 3 weeks and will continue my search….even on vacation in NYC! That’s how much I want to make Candice!!!

  17. stephanie — October 10, 2011 @ 8:29 am

    I have always been intimidated by totes/purses, but this Candice bag is so cute I just might get the courage to try it!

  18. Delores Carew — October 10, 2011 @ 8:29 am

    I lover to make purses and have some fabric just waiting to make Candice.She is GREAT!

  19. Gina S. — October 10, 2011 @ 8:30 am

    Can’t wait to get my hands on the pattern. What i like is she’s bigger without being to big. 😀

  20. RoseMary — October 10, 2011 @ 8:31 am

  21. Brenda Roland — October 10, 2011 @ 8:33 am

    I love the look of Candice. She is perfect with her big-tech pockets.

  22. sue pendleton — October 10, 2011 @ 8:33 am

    Why does it take so long to come out. been waiting ages now . I want to make some for Christmas presents.Would love to win Candice. It would make the long wait worth it even more. New on here so forgive me if i seem to have no patience. Its not true

  23. Jodie Hanzelka — October 10, 2011 @ 8:33 am

  24. SoozeM — October 10, 2011 @ 8:35 am

    Oooh I love Candice, I needed a larger bag just this weekend and this would be just perfect!! I adore Margo but need something just a bit bigger!

  25. Jan in Oz — October 10, 2011 @ 8:36 am

    Candice – not only eye candy but practical and smart. Love the original fabric and also the Nancy Mims fabric. Candice really makes a fashion statement.

  26. colleen — October 10, 2011 @ 8:37 am

    Another bag to love, As a part-time teacher, Candice looks like the perfect bag. I can keep papers, etc. for each class separate. As always, I’m certain the pattern will be super easy and the bag will look great.

  27. Patricia J. Conner — October 10, 2011 @ 8:37 am

    Have been on the waiting list since she first winked at me. Have the fabric waiting like a welcome mat. So Come on Down missy!!!

  29. Pat Fisher — October 10, 2011 @ 8:37 am

    I have made five of the Margo’s and I have e-mailed to get Candice as soon as possible. I am planning to make it in college colors for an auction at our church.
    Of course that will be only the first one.

  30. Shelly — October 10, 2011 @ 8:39 am

    I love this bag and can’t wait to get my hands on the pattern.

  31. Pat Easter — October 10, 2011 @ 8:39 am

    I love the Candice. I have pre-ordered the pattern, gathered the supplies and fabric and can hardly wait for her to get here.

  32. Valerie guilmette — October 10, 2011 @ 8:40 am

    I can’t wait to make this bag for my DIL for Christmas and of course one for myself.

  33. susan — October 10, 2011 @ 8:40 am

    You are so creative! Each time you create a new pattern I can’t wait to make it. I love the zipper top, inside pockets and the diagonal outside pocket on Candice. Waiting patiently . . .

  34. Sue Farrell — October 10, 2011 @ 8:40 am

    I think the Candice would look great in some of those batiks that I am so partial to. I love the pockets on the inside

  35. Ellie — October 10, 2011 @ 8:43 am

    Anticipation is making me wait! Lovely to look at! Winning!

  36. Ghee — October 10, 2011 @ 8:43 am

    I can hardly wait for this pattern. I really study handbag patterns before committing to them, and this one was a winner from the start.

  37. Kathy O — October 10, 2011 @ 8:44 am

    Looks like the perfect companion for shopping–can’t wait to meet her !

  38. Pam — October 10, 2011 @ 8:45 am

    My daughter-in-love has been saving our sons Army uniforms so that I can make her a purse…she had some very specific requests what she wanted the purse to have…Candice is exactly what she is hoping for…

  39. Patti — October 10, 2011 @ 8:46 am

    The diagonal pocket really sets it apart. Will try it!

  40. Linda — October 10, 2011 @ 8:48 am

    I can’t wait to get the pattern in stock! I just got an I Pad and look forward to carrying it in the new Candice bag.

  41. Karen — October 10, 2011 @ 8:48 am

    Another beautiful Lazy Girl bag for my collection. Can’t wait!

  42. Arlene — October 10, 2011 @ 8:50 am

    I have pre-ordered the pattern so as to be sure to get one right away. Love the new look of Candice. Am anxious to get started making one. Have the fabric already!!

  43. holli smith — October 10, 2011 @ 8:51 am

    I have made quite a few of your other patterns and loved them all. I can’t wait to try Candice. She’s such a cutie!

  44. Darlene Gerber — October 10, 2011 @ 8:51 am

    I love the Candice pattern and have the perfect fabric to make it out of!!!

  45. Elizabeth St. — October 10, 2011 @ 8:51 am

    Candice looks So sophisticated! Currently finishing up Margo in grays & ecru!

  46. Lynne — October 10, 2011 @ 8:52 am

    She is definitely one great looking girl! I love the outside pocket and can’t wait to learn her fat pockets way.

  47. Jane Moore — October 10, 2011 @ 8:54 am

    Love the front pocket for my iPhone, and I can tuck my iPad in the body of the purse. She’s a winner!

  48. sharon — October 10, 2011 @ 8:54 am

    Love the new candice bag, I would love to carry it around and tell all my quilting friends how lucky I am to have won it. I know they would be envious and just have to have the pattern for themselves so they could make one of their own.

  49. Alice — October 10, 2011 @ 8:58 am

    I’m a relatively new sewer. I have learned so much from sewing Lazy Girl Bag patterns. And I love the finished projects too. I can’t wait to try the Candice pattern

  50. kathyu — October 10, 2011 @ 8:59 am

    The bag is adorable!!!! Love it! You have the best designs. Thanks for the giveaway very generous!!
