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.

    I’m really looking forward to meeting Candice. So smart looking and functional too!!

  2. Brenda — October 10, 2011 @ 9:02 am

    I love this new Candice, with the useful inside pockets. I recognize your “girls” on the arms of well dressed women, everywhere, now. I saw one in green and white, the other day, and decided I better use a similar color scheme for one, for me…hmmmm Maybe the Candice in green…..Of course, I hope I win this contest. Thanks for offering this.

  3. Cathy — October 10, 2011 @ 9:03 am

    Already purchased the professional bag pattern but put it aside when I saw the Candice Bag! I have already made all your other patterns many times so I can’t wait to make this one!

  4. Marilyn Klein — October 10, 2011 @ 9:03 am

    Love the new look that Candice provides. Anxious to make her. All those inside pockets are wonderful!

  5. Robbie Foster — October 10, 2011 @ 9:04 am

    I am so anxious to make Candice. I have everything (right down to the D rings) for her except the pattern! I don’t have an iPad–may have to buy one to go with Candice. I love all my Lazy bags and can’t wait to add another. After mine is made, another may find her way to the Christmas list for my daughter.

  6. Gina C. — October 10, 2011 @ 9:05 am

    Oooh, I’m totally loving this Candice bag! Looks like a perfect size, and love the handles too.

  7. Susannah — October 10, 2011 @ 9:06 am

    Oh, I love this one! The red and white one is striking. I want, I want!

  8. June — October 10, 2011 @ 9:07 am

    I love everything about this pattern! I like the updated look of the outside pocket, I really like the zippered top, and I appreciate that there is an interior pocket for for out techie stuff. I look forward to getting this pattern, either by winning it or buying it.

  9. Lisa Garrett — October 10, 2011 @ 9:15 am

    I love Candice! Red is one of my favorite colors.

  10. Helen — October 10, 2011 @ 9:15 am

    Hi Joan!
    I love the new Candice. Now, this may sound strange, but I like her layout because it keeps a nice “clean” exterior. The diagonal pattern seems to enhance rather than break up the exterior fabric pattern.
    BTW, I’m a weaver of fine exotic fabrics for garments, plus. This is why I’m so happy with your latest design. It is as if you made it for me!
    The pockets inside will really make her functional, too! I look forward to welcoming her into my life! Thanks!

  11. Cory — October 10, 2011 @ 9:15 am

    I would love to win Candace so I can make her. Thank you for the chance. Take care and God bless, Cory

  12. Jeanne Reynen — October 10, 2011 @ 9:16 am

    I’ve always enjoyed your patterns and am really looking forward to this one! I like the D rings on Candice.

  13. MaeBelle — October 10, 2011 @ 9:22 am

    Can’t wait to meet Candice….and find out about the “new” pocket for our iPads, Kindles…..I would love to win the pattern but if not, I’m on the list to buy her!!!!!

  14. Anita — October 10, 2011 @ 9:25 am

    I love the Candice Pattern. Can’t wait to get it.

  15. Debi Tullier — October 10, 2011 @ 9:25 am

    I love the styling of this contemporary lady!

  16. Sarah — October 10, 2011 @ 9:26 am

    I love your Candace! She’s beautiful and helpful! 😉

  17. Cheryl Hammond — October 10, 2011 @ 9:28 am

    I am absolutely in love with this pattern, and can’t wait for it to arrive in stores! The rectangular rings are such nice touch! Your patterns rock!!

  18. Linda559 — October 10, 2011 @ 9:29 am

    Really like this pattern! It caught my eye for traveling; with the special pockets so I can safely carry my iPad with me when I travel. I am just getting back into sewing, this will be my first big project after the several small items I’ve already tried for practice.

  19. Jen (PunkiePie) — October 10, 2011 @ 9:30 am

    I can’t wait for Candice! I think she will make a fantastic work bag for myself.

  20. Becky S — October 10, 2011 @ 9:30 am

    I am really looking forward to making this one. I have an e-reader that I take everywhere and can’t wait to have a better way of toteing it around.

  21. Cindi C — October 10, 2011 @ 9:34 am

    Candace is beautiful! I can’t wait to make her.

  22. Kathie — October 10, 2011 @ 9:36 am

    I ordered the Candice pattern after your first posting. I like the idea of adding the rings for the strap. I’m new to sewing and your patterns make me look like an old pro. thanks!

  23. SheilaJ — October 10, 2011 @ 9:37 am

    Ah Candice, the perfect lady. Can’t wait to meet her.
    She’ll be so happy being dressed in paisley.

  24. Mary — October 10, 2011 @ 9:38 am

    Been waiting since Sept 23 when I preordered Candice. Anxious to get started.

  25. Diane — October 10, 2011 @ 9:39 am

    OMG…what a gorgeous purse. Would love to make her:)

  26. Betty T — October 10, 2011 @ 9:41 am

    Ohhh, can`t wait for her arrival. Have been checking out all the new fabrics for her new dress.
    So many to choose from, I may have to make more than one dress for her….

  27. Naomi Vela — October 10, 2011 @ 9:41 am

    I like how Candice has the outside pocket…’s different looking (from other bags out there) and I do like different!

    Hugs & Congrat’s on the new pattern.

  28. Debbie — October 10, 2011 @ 9:41 am

    I am currently making your Summer Tote for my 2 grown daughters for Christmas with a Suzi insert for each… I can’t wait to get Candice I plan to make that for them also. Girls can never have too many bags……

  29. Ophelia — October 10, 2011 @ 9:43 am

    Bring on the lazy! I’m pre-ordering but if I win I’ll share the wealth. Way to hype up the next pattern. Hats off to your marketing prowess.

  30. Cindy Coutts — October 10, 2011 @ 9:46 am

    I can’t wait to try this pattern!! I love all the pockets.

  31. Pat Kelley — October 10, 2011 @ 9:47 am

    I love the Candice as much as all the other Lazys I have made. Looking forward to making this one. Just the right size.

  32. Jennie Kerwood — October 10, 2011 @ 9:47 am

    I am itching to make myself a new bag, but after reading about Candice recently, I decided to wait until she was ready to be born before starting. I love all your patterns, and can’t wait to meet Candice soon myself! .

    Thanks much,


  33. LInda — October 10, 2011 @ 9:49 am

    Can’t wait to start making my own Candice bags. Loved Margo but apparently I carry way too much stuff so a slightly bigger bag will be wonderful. The zipper instructions were great.

  34. LauraLou — October 10, 2011 @ 9:50 am

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BAG! I’ve made several lazy bags and my friends now tease me by asking which bag I am carrying today. I would love to carry this one and have the fabric idea already cookin’ in my head.

  35. Eileen — October 10, 2011 @ 9:51 am

    I like the looks of the angled pocket. Thanks for the chance to win the bundle.

  36. Kathe — October 10, 2011 @ 9:51 am

    It just amazes me that you seem to best yourself on each bag you design – congratulations! This one is one of your best – so far! Thanks.

  37. Eileen Mueller — October 10, 2011 @ 9:53 am

    I want to do those new pockets… on everything. Ive already ordered my pattern!

  38. Anne Lamela — October 10, 2011 @ 9:54 am

    Can’t wait to try the Candice. I love your patterns.

  39. Jean Baumert] — October 10, 2011 @ 9:54 am

    Looks like a great pattern. I can’t wait to try it.

  40. Sandi — October 10, 2011 @ 9:56 am

    I love the crisp lines of Candace. Can’t wait to try out the newest Lazy Girl!

  41. Janet — October 10, 2011 @ 9:56 am

    Love the new pocketbook. So very useful and visually exciting. Like the square rings, too. I’ve used the half moon ones but the squares will slip a lot less. Thanks!

  42. Vivian McPherson — October 10, 2011 @ 9:56 am

    Would love to be a winner…have made many of your purses already…Started your things a long time ago with the first Lazygirl patterns for quilting!

  43. Dolly — October 10, 2011 @ 9:57 am

    Am enjoying Margo and anxious to get Candice. I like a zipper top, love the pockets and the way the straps are attached.

  44. Pat — October 10, 2011 @ 9:57 am

    I am so in love with your new Candace purse – especially since my husband just gave me an Ipad2 and I can’t wait to make several Candace purses to take along my pride n joy every where I go! Great design – congratulations!

  45. DeeAnn — October 10, 2011 @ 9:57 am

    I love the way you put colors together on these bags – especially Candace!

  46. Jessica B — October 10, 2011 @ 9:58 am

    How cute! Love this purse! Thanks for a chance to win.

  47. Laura Little — October 10, 2011 @ 9:58 am

    I really really like this pattern and look forward to purchasing but better yet winning it! If I win I hope I have time to make it for when I go to IQF for the first time.

  48. Iris — October 10, 2011 @ 9:59 am

    If the Candance is anywhere near as great as the Margo, I’ll be a happy camper.

  49. Pat — October 10, 2011 @ 9:59 am

    I just love all of your purses and the fact that you are such a nice person to do business with. You went out of your way to assist me when I had a problem.
    Thank you again

  50. Linda F. — October 10, 2011 @ 10:00 am

    I have the perfect fabric for this bag… a big print… but I bet it would look great in two different colors of solid linen too.
