Our product line includes a variety of items. Most of the questions we receive concern our bag/purse/tote patterns. Contact us if you have other questions.
Lazy Girl Designs has three easy and unconventional techniques for installing a zipper. And you won't find any of them in the package the zipper came in. I call these 'No-Fear', 'Sew Easy', and 'Zip-tastic'. The directions for these techniques can be found in the Lazy Girl patterns that use them.
Absolutely. Many of our designs are constructed by sewing through many layers of fabric and batting. Keep this total thickness in mind when selecting fabrics and make adjustments as necessary.
Making items from our patterns for sale violates our copyright policy. In order to protect our business, we don't grant permission for our designs to be made for sale unless specifically noted in a pattern's copyright statement.
Our patterns are written in a quilter's language, for use with a rotary cutter, cutting ruler and mat. That means our patterns do not contain pattern pieces (unless needed), but rather list dimensions of pieces written for rotary cutting. Almost all of the pieces are rectangles, squares or strips.
A fat quarter of fabric (18" x 22") is a common cut of fabric in the quilt industry. It's the same amount of yardage as a quarter yard cut from the bolt, it's simply more square which allows you to cut larger pieces from the same amount of yardage.
You don't have to use fat quarters, you can always use yardage off the bolt. If you do, get a bit more than is listed on the pattern supply list.
