‘Bold Bags’ book project with Leisure Arts

Lazies, I am so excited about my new project with Leisure Arts (LA). LA approached me to do a book with their new line of faux leather and mock croc purse products.  I fell in love with the materials as soon as I started to play with them.

The handles and the shoulder straps are the big news for our bag-loving fabric crafters because they are a new offering and will work with many designs already available in the maket.  Fashion handles have been readily available for a number of years, but the selection has been limited to hard, mold-injected models or beads strung on wire.  LA is offering faux leather handle pairs and mock croc shoulder straps.  LA also offers letter-sized sheets of the same faux leather and mock croc which are easy to cut and sew.

‘Bold Bags’ by Lazy Girl Designs from Leisure Arts book should be available in November 2006.  ‘Bold Bags’ contains 7 bag projects and suggested retail is $8.95, 32 pages, full-color.  The projects range from easy to intermediate.  And here’s the inside scoop on one detail – we introduce yet another easy and fantastic way to install a zipper!

You can see the entire line of ‘Exclusively You’ faux leather and mock croc products from Leisure Arts at:

    This is super! I am off to QuiltMarket in Houston this week and will be looking for these fun bag handles and accessories. Have you tried the faux leather fabrics for parts of your classic LGD patterns? Would it work on the outside of the Wonder Wallet, I wonder? And what about those adorable ball and chains in different colors! The hardware is great and I hope you find uses for the different pieces in your designs. I think the appeal will be that our bags will look so professional. When someone asks, “Where did you get your bag?” the response will be, “Its a Lazy Girl and I got the pattern at Calico Gals!”
