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.

    …eagerly awaiting for the pattern to come out.

  10. Deanne — October 12, 2011 @ 8:28 pm

    Your designs are amazing. I’m trying to wait patiently for the pattern to be released. Talk about being a kid in the candy shop, or in our case, a quilter in a quilt shop. LOL

  11. MarciaW — October 12, 2011 @ 9:19 pm

    I like the dramatic diagonal on this bag, and the great fabrics that showcase that design. It’s unique.

  12. Judy S — October 13, 2011 @ 12:25 am

    Perfect for my new e-book! Thank you for the perfect timing of a wonderful bag>

  13. JoAnne — October 13, 2011 @ 6:25 am

    Joan, your techniques and innovations are wonderful! Candice looks like another must-have!

  14. Deb — October 13, 2011 @ 7:53 am

    Really cute bag! I rarely make bags beause I never seem to have the right hardware – this would be great!

  15. blop — October 13, 2011 @ 10:02 am

    I have been drooling from afar, too long…..time to leap and a perfect bag to leap for!!!

  16. Amy M — October 13, 2011 @ 10:55 am

    Candace had me at zippered top and then sealed the deal with fat pockets. She looks great AND I already have some Treasures and Tidbits on hand.

  17. Madame Purl — October 13, 2011 @ 11:22 am

    Love, love, love the new Candace bag. Can’t wait to make one. Perfect for my iPad.

    My IPad will love her new home! She definitely is beautiful!

  19. Christine M — October 13, 2011 @ 2:42 pm

    Love this new pattern. I gave away a margo purse and the gal said she liked it but wished it was a bit taller. TADA here come Candice. This is going to be exactly what she was wanting. Thanks for the chance to win the Candice kit as I call it.

  21. Laura S. — October 13, 2011 @ 3:25 pm

    My daughter says I never make anything for her, so Candance will make a great birthday gift to go along with the Kindle she is getting.

  26. Susie — October 13, 2011 @ 8:35 pm

    Would an ipad fit in that pocket?

  27. Shannon Menninger — October 13, 2011 @ 8:36 pm

    I can’t wait to get my hands on this pattern. I am living in Japan currently, so I will have to wait, patiently, for the mailman to deliver this to me!!!

  28. Cathy Francis — October 13, 2011 @ 8:37 pm

    I love the Candace Pattern, and I have two pieces of fabric that would be great as the main fabric. ONe is a large scale Christmas pointesettia, and the other one is an Oriental Print.
