Fresh Faces of Lazy

Lazies, In the coming weeks, I have a multi-part series to share on the blog about an ensemble I recently made using my designs, and a few alterations I included in each item. The Wonder Wallet is amongst that group of course. Like many of you, I make a Wonder Wallet to go with each bag I create. It’s a perfect accessory and uses up all of those left overs from bigger projects.

Fresh Faces of Lazy
No, not people – patterns! We are introducing a fresh face for our Wonder Wallet pattern with a new cover sample in fabulous blues, browns, and greens. Our little Wonder Wallet is still our best selling pattern after 11 or 12 years – I just can’t remember how long it’s been. So, this is the current look for that little cutie.

Since we updated our logo a year ago this past May, I’ve updated more than a dozen of our patterns with the new look of Lazy. I love seeing each one come back from the printer with their shiny new make overs.

All Purpose Caddy
Most recently, our little Couch Caddy joined the group. Have you given this design a try? The appeal of the Couch Caddy is utility wrapped in attractiveness – combined with easy construction, of course.

Use it on the arm of a chair or couch to keep things handy. Or, tuck one end between the mattress and box springs and you’ll have a hanging set of pockets to keep things in reach. And of course, hang it over the bar of a walker, add some ribbons to the side edges to make ties and hold it in place for a walker caddy.

Other Fresh Faces
Here are some of the other Lazy Girls who have received a make over in the last year. You can see all of our designs on our website here.

    I never tire of making Lazy Girl Design patterns as they give me a quick fix of feeling like I have done something fun in a very busy life right now.
    For those of us who are very visual the new covers are a delight!

    the perfect pouches continue to be my faves, i make them for gifts when i want to do “mindless sewing”….i’ve done them so often, i don’t need to read past what size to cut. they are always a hit w/ the recipient. i’ve even given them to men to keep in their trucks w/ their “truck stuff”, nail clipper, lip balm, band aids, pen, etc. of course, i use “manly fabric” like john deere or fish, golf, etc.

    Hi Joan ~
    Thanks so much for the fresh new looks!! I just love your patterns and always look forward to making one of your bags. I have not made the Wonder Wallet as of yet, but now that I look at the pretty fabrics, I think I’ll give it a try!!
    Thanks again for all your hard work and your wonderful, easy ideas for making pretties we can share.
    Mary :o}

    I made a black and white Claire and it’s wild! Everyone loves it! Of course I made a wallet but I added the outside a black, white and red wild fat. Really looks great. I used your steam tricks and it looks outstanding! Love the pattern, will be presents all around. Friends are giving me their lists, short handles or long. lol

    My friend, Wendy made herself a Wonder Wallet and when I saw it I had to get the pattern too and make myself one!
    Every time I make a wallet it comes out so different looking because of the fabric choices and buttons, now my sister, Mother and daughters want one. My youngest daughter wants one in a Strawberry Shortcake fabric. It will be very sweet!

    I have made Wonder Wallet for all the grands and 2 for me, I use mine to hold my very small digital camera and my I-Pod. They are kept very safe in a crowded purse. My grandkids love them because they often get refilled with gift cards and “moneys”! I life your new fresh looks.

    Joan, I love my little wallet. It holds my insurance cards in the first pocket, my cards (Priority Club, AAA, ARRP, Southwest and Hertz.) in the second pocket.

    It is so easy to have these things organized, especially when I travel. Then I insert my drivers license and it is so easy to fly somewhere and each one is at my fingertips.

    Thank you, Jean

    love your new pictures of the wonder wallet. I make mine with snaps. I also have an embroidery machine so I decided when make a purse to add some type of embroidery design for an extra touch. love all your designes.
