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 love this pattern! It’s already on order for me!

  2. Jennifer — October 10, 2011 @ 9:07 pm

    I would love to add Candice to my collection of Lazy Girl bags!

  3. Sandra B. Perry — October 10, 2011 @ 9:10 pm

    Funny you should mention a sandy beach…that was my maiden name!
    I have made several of your bags always for myself, I think, until I take it out in public and the girls get a look at it then I end up making at least a half dozen to give away as gifts. It wonderful to be able to sew!
    Your patterns just keep getting better and better! Have a gorgeous fabric picked out all ready for this one, can’t wait to get it!

  4. Maureen Scott — October 10, 2011 @ 9:10 pm

    I love the asymmetrical look of the front pocket such a high-end,love,love it!

  5. VickiT — October 10, 2011 @ 9:20 pm

    Candice looks like another awesome bag. I really love the top picture made with the Pick A Bunch fabric. Just gorgeous and fun too.
    I really love the way the front is with that angled area.

  6. Cheryl in Oh — October 10, 2011 @ 9:54 pm

    I have been wanting a new purse….Can’t wait to meet Candice!

  7. Carol C in CO — October 10, 2011 @ 10:24 pm

    Candace is a gorgeous purse and I like the inside pocket for my tech toys. I’m looking forward to making one. I have the fabric all ready picked out.

  8. Shirley Ponder — October 10, 2011 @ 10:38 pm

    Have pre-ordered Candice and looking forward to receiving it. Have accumulated many of the Lazy Girl patterns but haven’t had the chance to make many except the Runaround Bag and Summer Tote. Would love to win, especially to have the bottom & D-rings, then I could give one pattern as a gift since the giveaway includes the pattern. Thanks.

  9. Barbara — October 10, 2011 @ 10:59 pm

    would like to make Candice to hold my IA pad.

  10. Gayla — October 10, 2011 @ 11:08 pm

    I can’t wait to make up a Candace! I am currently making my first Claire, and continue to be amazed at the ingenuity that goes into the creation of the pattern! Joan, your patterns are clearly written, easy to follow and constructed so as to make it as easy as possible for the maker. I’m a fan.

  11. Jane — October 10, 2011 @ 11:12 pm

    Joan – You did it again, style with function. Love the lines of this bag. I also still love my Margo I made too. Thanks for the chance.
    Lazie .. Jane

  12. Carla G — October 10, 2011 @ 11:17 pm

    Candice looks like a great bag! I love your choice of fabric! And I would love to meet her! Thanks for a chance to win! 🙂

  13. Sharon B — October 10, 2011 @ 11:27 pm

    Being a quilter, I have just started to consider making a bag – this one does it for me. A grab and go for anywhere from shopping to dinner to any kind of function to church. It is very eye-catching, very appropriate and tasteful for everyone. Beautiful choice of color. I would be proud to carry it and for me that says a lot.

  14. OHSue — October 10, 2011 @ 11:34 pm

    I love that outside pocket! Love the look of the diagonal slicing across the front and I know I will love having that outside pocket for grabbing quick stuff.

  15. Nikki Pacheco Theard — October 10, 2011 @ 11:35 pm

    I adore Candice, another contemporary winning design pattern for all us Lazy Girl fans. I’d love to stitch this pattern up for myself and my family, using this gift would be such a delight. Thanks for the great giveaway chance.

  16. Ann Faught — October 10, 2011 @ 11:54 pm

    Love your bags, can’t wait to get Candice

  17. Michelle — October 11, 2011 @ 12:06 am

    Joan – I have been waiting and waiting for a bag pattern like this! I’m SOO excited that I already asked my local shop to pre-order (as soon as you said we could!). Candice is brilliant, stylish and oh, so practical! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us. I can’t wait to make her just for myself!

  18. Carolyn H. — October 11, 2011 @ 12:35 am

    Candace looks like the perfect bag for me. The slash pocket will be perfect to hold my keys and sunglasses. All of your patterns have such clear directions and I really have a use for each pocket.

  19. Dragica — October 11, 2011 @ 12:35 am

    Love her…it is practical use at every step …. and you just have to like her…Candice..

  20. Heather — October 11, 2011 @ 12:42 am

    Candice is so pretty and bright! Just the little touch of colour needed to help one get through the upcoming colourlessness of winter.

  21. Holly — October 11, 2011 @ 12:46 am

    I am impatiently waiting for Candice. I have the perfect fabrics and she will carry and protect my Nook Color perfectly! Always love when you unveil a new pattern, but you sure do tease us alot. 😉

  22. Carol in E TN — October 11, 2011 @ 12:52 am

    Candace is a great looking bag! Thanks for the giveaway.

  23. Gail — October 11, 2011 @ 1:26 am

    Hot cha-cha! This bag is soooo good looking! Love this pattern!

  24. Joan from Hawaii — October 11, 2011 @ 1:28 am

    The Candace bag is THE bag for all ages. If time permits, I plan on making bags for all my gals ranging from middle school to senior citizem!

  25. Barbara Hart — October 11, 2011 @ 1:35 am

    I absolutely love this pattern!! Pick me! Pick me!! The outside pocket is pure genius!!!

  26. Cheryl Greenleaf — October 11, 2011 @ 2:57 am

    I love all the nooks and crannies built into your new Candice. IMHO your best bag design yet!

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  27. Candy Beardsley — October 11, 2011 @ 3:36 am

    If only you’d spelled her name “CandAce”…….then she would TRUELY be mine! LOL…but when I get to know her a bit better, I can just call her Candy!

  28. Jennifer Collard — October 11, 2011 @ 4:48 am

    I really like this pattern. I have never finished making any bag I ever started, but this looks lioke something I would not only finish, but actually USE! Ii is sleek, and mature without being old Lady styled, while carrying a youthful glow that would be appropriate for all but the kindergaten set. Beautiful!

  29. Marion — October 11, 2011 @ 5:12 am

    Candice would love to come to NZ we have wonderful fabric awaiting her desires with kiwis, flowers, trees,

  30. Kelly says — October 11, 2011 @ 5:14 am

    There you are Candice, I’ve been looking all over for you !. Love the new bag, lots of pockets. I’m already picking out the fabric to use. I know what the girls at work will be getting for Christmas. Just love Lazy Girl designs.

  31. Yolanda — October 11, 2011 @ 5:48 am

    I would just love to be the first in South Africa to make this stunning and useful Candice-bag! Enough pockets to keep all my goodies tidy- no more looking for keys or my bb…!! Great bag for my new job 🙂

  32. charlotte — October 11, 2011 @ 6:40 am

    I am in LOVE with the new bag. Your bag patterns are so easy to follow and I enjoy creating with them. Thank You for your work!!!

  33. maraianne — October 11, 2011 @ 7:11 am

    Love your purse!! Can’t wait till the pattern comes out.

  34. Joan — October 11, 2011 @ 7:14 am

    This bag looks fabulous. I can see many fabrics in my stash that will look good on her. Great pockets, too. One can never have too many pockets. I have many purses and bags in my collection and would love to add Candice to it.

  35. Judi — October 11, 2011 @ 7:34 am

    I’ll be the most stylish and organized person on the commuter train with
    Candice by my side.

  36. Wanda Rude — October 11, 2011 @ 7:38 am

    Just got a Kindle and can’t wait to make Candice …already have the material!

  37. Celtic Thistle — October 11, 2011 @ 8:00 am

    Another great addition to the Lazy Girl family, can’t wait to try it out.

  38. Maureen — October 11, 2011 @ 8:07 am

    love everything you create, I have a lot of ideas for Candice and hope I am the lucky winner.

  39. Kate — October 11, 2011 @ 8:27 am

    As soon as I got the first email re: Candice, I went straight to my LQS and begged the new owners to order it so I could make this functional beauty. Fingers crossed that I’ll get the phone call soon!

  40. Robin (RsIslandCrafts) — October 11, 2011 @ 8:33 am

    Candace is gorgeous. I love the shape.

  41. Jill953 — October 11, 2011 @ 8:51 am

    Love this pretty girl…in many colors and fashions!

  42. Traci — October 11, 2011 @ 9:07 am

    Another lovely pattern Joan! Can’t wait to try my hand at this one. Thanks for continuing to design such great patterns!

  43. Kathy — October 11, 2011 @ 9:10 am

    Great bag! I would love to make (when I have time!)

  44. Arlene — October 11, 2011 @ 9:15 am

    I am very excited about this pattern. I love making and carrying purses with zippers and pockets. Your patterns and hints on your web site are always so helpful.

  45. MaryBeth — October 11, 2011 @ 9:15 am

    What a cute bag. I love your fabric choices!

  46. Jane McKay — October 11, 2011 @ 9:34 am

    I love ALL your patterns. This one is really cute. Like the pocket outside.

  47. Sally D — October 11, 2011 @ 10:03 am

    I don’t know if this will replace my other Lazy purse patterns as my favorite but I love the competition!

  48. DeAnne — October 11, 2011 @ 10:56 am

    I am waiting patiently for Candice to be available. I think it will be Christmas gifts for several people including me!

  49. Pat O — October 11, 2011 @ 10:57 am

    She is indeed a beauty. I love the design. My mind runs in full color fabric when I see a new pattern, deciding on what fabric would like nice, and what would coordinate well. I am anxious to try this pattern. Thanks for sharing her with us.

  50. Kris P — October 11, 2011 @ 11:39 am

    Lovely bag. I need this bag.
