Giveaway: Runaround Bag Pattern and Dreamy Fusible Fleece
Lazies, The Runaround Bag (LGD111) is one of our most-loved and easiest bags. Two fat quarters, a smidge of fleece, a zipper and you’re done before you know it. Well, it’s time to give this baby a new look, so let me introduce you to the new cover for the Runaround Bag.
This citron yellow, black, white and gray color combination gets me every time.
These gorgeous and fun fabrics are by Michael Miller.

Runaround Bag Features
What’s so great about the Runaround Bag? It’s quick, easy and all function. It’s a wonderful little bag, about the size of your outstretched hand (7″ x 9″), perfect to sling over your shoulder or wear cross-body when you need to travel light.

A simple pocket completes the back.
Dreamy Fusible Fleece
I used our Dreamy Fusible Fleece in these bags. The Runaround was written for use with sew-in fleece or batting. It’s easy enough to substitute fusible fleece in Step 4 of the pattern. Simply layer the lining fabric, fleece and back fabric piece together as described in Assembly, then press with a hot steam iron to fuse the fleece in place. Dreamy is fusible on one side only. In this project, it doesn’t matter if it is fused to the lining or the backing fabric. As when working with any fusible, be careful around the edges so as not to get fusible on the sole plate of your iron, or ironing board and using an applique pressing sheet for a pressing cloth is a good idea, too.

For years I had been working with and recommending Pellon’s fusible fleece #987F for my bag designs, so let me compare the two. Compared to Pellon, our Dreamy Fusible Fleece is a little thicker, has a more smooth surface and is comparable in the structure it brings to your project. Dreamy has a lighter layer of adhesive so fabric isn’t over-fused, creating cellulite or dimpling.

About the Fusible
Dreamy Fusible Fleece has a light layer of adhesive on one side. Dreamy comes 45″ wide, folded then rolled on the bolt. The fusible is on the folded to the inside. This is an easy trick to remember where the fusible is – folding it to the inside protects the adhesive layer. I mention all of this because it truly is a light layer and once you get your Dreamy out and you’re working with it, you might have some trouble knowing which side has the adhesive. The adhesive side is slightly rougher to the touch and every so slightly shinier. When in doubt, cut a small scrap, place it between two larger pieces of fabric and press – which ever side fuses to the fleece is the fusible side. If needed, make a mark or a note on your fleece to help keep track of the fusible side.
The way the zipper goes in on the Runaround is outstanding and outstandingly simple. Put your zipper fears aside and give it a try. I can highly recommend the fabulous zips from Atkinson Designs for this project. They’re longer than you need, but the zip gets cut down anyway, so indulge in Atkinson’s wonderful color assortment and have some fun.

I love this bag. Makes me want one in every color.
The Runaround Bag would be perfect for my mom. She is in assited living and this would be very easy for her to carry!!
Love this bag. My daughter and her girlfriends would love this bag too!!!
I recently made a purse from your Candace pattern and it turned out GREAT! This looks like it will be a fun, easy bag to make and I would love to win the pattern.
I just love this little bag!
Great easy pattern. I know several people I could give this to as a gift.
I love the Runaround Bag pattern!! Great size and versatile. Would make a great gift for anyone done in their favorite colors. Can’t wait to try it with fusible fleece.
That is a simply lovely bag and I adore zippers too. Thank you for the chance to win.
Super cute bag and so functional! I am anxious to try the Dreamy Fleece, too.
Would you believe this is one of your patterns that I haven’t purchased yet? This size could be the perfect project to do with my granddaughter, age 7 who is learning to sew and quilt. And I think I’d have use for something like this for myself too.
Good luck everyone…..
I like the runabout bag! Looks great for throwing a few things into on the go!
All of your bags are great!
I love the runaround bag pattern but I’ve never used fusible fleece!
would love to try this bag! love all the lazy items because they are so easy and gorgeous!
I have made several of the Run around bags & everyone that got them loved them. Fast & easy bag to make. Neat!!
The Runaround Bag is the perfect size to carry the basics.
This would be a great bag to take on a shop hop!
I love this pattern, and am making several to match or coordinate with my dressy clothes. I only need a tissue, lipstick, and a cough drop in it and it’s so fun having it. I made a sample for the local quilt shop and it sold lots of RunAround patterns. If I won the pattern, I would give it to my granddaughter who is beginning to love sewing and quilting. Thanks for your wonderful expertise, creativity, and excellent patterns.
Love this bag. I have probably made six or more.
This bag would be great for those quick run in and out of the store trips. Would love to give it a try. Thank you.
Would love to make the RunAround for a friend! Thanks for entering me!
Love this little bag, I make one called the Lexi Swing Bag, but your zipper on the front is a great idea. I am very interested in finding where the Dreamy Fusible Fleece is sold!
I love this bag. It is a great size for running around. Can’t wait to add this to my collection of your bags.
I would love to try a the new fusible fleece!
Neat little bag–love the fabric combo too!!
Love all of your bag designs. Would like to make several of this runaround bag.
I love this little purse. It’s makes a quick and nifty gift for that someone special
Nice little bag to put essentials in for a quick trip to the mall.
I love this little purse. It’s makes a quick and nifty gift for that someone special
Ideal for an upcoming girls week at an amusement park. And so easy to personalize to each of us. LazyGirl provides the perfect solution in an easy to make bag once again. Can’t wait to get started. And with the “underpinnings” perfected it will be even easier. I like easier.
Have made several of these and love them. Would like to try your fusible fleese. Thanks for the great ideas.
Can’t wait to make this one!
Oh, I love this bag!
This bag looks wonderful!! I can’t wait to make it and to try the new fusible fleece. Thanks.
I’ve made one and will make more. Would like to try the fusible fleece. Zipper is easy to sew..
I recently saw someone who had it and I was jealous. I wanted to make one so badly, but it is not one of patterns I have yet 🙁 sad sad face. I would love to win this.
Joan – a question about this bag.. has anyone ever made it with webbing and possibly put the straps in the other order to make it more like a belt bag??? Not quite a fanny pack but an actual webbed belt with this attached. Just curious?
I like small purses to wear when i go to the grocery store….so cute of a pattern!
I love the bag! It looks super easy and super cute! I haven’t used fusible fleece before, but after reading this post, I need to give it a try. Thanks for the fab giveaway!
I am so impressed with all the new products you have produced. I would love to make this little bag – so many of my friends and family would love one too.
Love this bag. Easy, pretty Christmas gift idea. Would love to try the Dreamy Fusible Fleece.
Run around bag—–cute
Fusible fleece——want to try
Thanks for the contest!
Thanks Joan for updating the look & fusible for this bag! It looks like a great evening bag for casual or dressy!
I would love to try making this bag so I would just love to win the pattern! Thanks for the chance to do so.
I love the round around bag. 🙂 The fusible fleece is WONDERFUL!!! It irons on very quickly! 🙂
Love the new cover fabrics. Must make one. I’ve checked my local shops for your new interfacings/fusibles, but they aren’t carrying them…yet. I’ll be ordering and trying the new products. Thanks for creating great products.
What a great little bag! So handy for when you dash out with just keys and credit card to do the groceries! It reminds me of one I had way way back in my twenties, although this one looks far more professional in style, with it’s padding and back pocket.
I’d love to try out that new fusible, too. 🙂
Very cute bag – I’d love to try it out! Fusible Fleece sounds interesting, but I’m such a fan of free motion quilting lately, that I don’t mind using that technique instead. I agree that grey and yellow are gorgeous. I have your Miranda bag in blue and yellow, and I may need to update it to more neutral colours (and darker!) so that it stands out a bit less.
I love this bag! I would love to make one for a Christmas present!
Love the new look for your pattern. Great fabric choices!
Joan, it always amazes me how these traditional tried and true patterns can look
brand spanking new and trendy!
I’d love to win this pattern and I haven’t had a chance to try out your newest products, but
The Runaround bag is perfect for shop hopping when you want to carry just the essentials. Thank you!
I’ve been a fan of yours for quite awhile. I love how simple and easy your directions are to follow. I have yet to find anyone who makes putting a zipper in so easy! Would love to win this pattern and your new fleece to try. 🙂
Oh, I forgot all about that pattern – I remember an older post, but for some reason I never purchased the pattern… I’ve never won anything – so this would be fun… BTW thank you for ALL the great patterns – every bag I’ve made so far has turned out great – and, believe me, I am really NOT a sewer. Cheers from Germany, Brigitte
I am on vacation and would really like to try the new interfacing. They really look like they make such a positive difference in a bag. Thanks alot, jane
Wow, this would make a great last minute Christmas present. I always have a couple of people I have forgotten….I could make several and stash them for emergencies.
This would be a perfect purse for just a few things with when traveling.
This bag would make great Christmas gifts!
This bag looks perfect for a trip I am planning – I would like to make it, so it will keep my hands free while taking photos and traveling around… so cool. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will win…
Love the Runaround pattern :o)
I really NEED to make this bag and try out the Dreamy Fusible Fleece. Thanks for offering the give-away.
I have my runaround bag that I made years ago- one of my first projects with a zipper. Thanks so much for creating these fun little bags!
HI, I belong to a sewing club and the ladies all use your patterns on a regular basis for their show and tell. However, the winner hands down is your runaround bag. It’s the go-to pattern for everyone when they need a quick gift or when they want a new little something for themselves for a trip. I am on vacation and in my project bag are the makings for 2 runaround bags. One for me and another for a friend!
Wow! Color combs are endless! Anxious to try the fleece!
This bag is beautiful. I’ve not heard of Dreamy Fusible Fleece and would love to try it out. Thanks for the chance to win some goodies!
This bag looks so fun! Perfect for motorcycle riding!
I love this bag! I’ve actually made it more than a dozen times then I loaned my pattern to an acquaintance borrow it and it never came back! I’d love to have a new updated copy to make bags for my 13 year-old’s friends for Christmas!
I wish we could purchase the new fleece on line. Our local stores do not carry it. Has any one tried this pattern in faux suede?
Great size! I love making little bags like this. Perfect for everyday errands.
Anxious to try Dreamy….
Love the style of this bag, my daughter would love to make one to carry to school. Since she is only 11 and loves to sew on her new sewing machine that she won, this would be a perfect project for her.
This looks like the perfect little bag for a quick run to the store, or out with friends when a big bag is not an option. I need to downsize my bags and this would be great. I love the lemon yellow fabric choice!
Love this bag for traveling
I really like the size of the bag.
Just the size bag that would make wonderful Christmas gifts for several of the gals on my list.
The bag looks really nice ith that interfacing. Would love to win.
great bag for the teenagers in my life…
How cool would this bag be for an electronic device! I am wondering if the iPad will fit inside?????? HMMMMMMMM
What a great size bag to make for gifts and for me! An easy way to put in a zipper??? Count me in! Thank you!
I have made this bag probably 30 times now in various color combinations — usually team colors as this makes a fabulous gameday bag. Put in over your neck and wear it cross-body and you won’t lose it as you are up and down, clapping, cheering, running to the snackbar. Just the right size for a wallet, lipstick, keys, camera — the essentials!
I love this bag, it is great for all ages, the elderly love them, teenagers love them, can be made in so many colors, great bag
This looks like the perfect size bag to take to a quilt show. I’ts just big enough to hold the essentials but leaves your hands free (to check out all of the stuff at the merchants mall).
I would love to win this pattern and some of the new fusible fleece. Those bags would make great Christmas gifts! Love all your patterns!
Cute little bag! Looks like it’ll be perfect for wearing to quitl shows and fairs, when you need to have both hands free for all the stuff you ‘had to have’!
This bag is very practical. You can carry the essentials and make it combining a couple of fat quarters. Great! Will love to try the Dreammy Fusible Fleece. Great giveaway!
That bag is very cute. I can’t wait to make it. Also am very interested in trying the fleece. It seems I never pick the right filler/support for my bags that I make, they get too soft too quickly.
Awesome bag!! Would love to make a few of these as gifts!
My niece who is only 41 years old will begin a fight for her life next week and it will be a gruelling six weeks of radiations and chemo. It would be lovely to make her this purse and fill it with comforting quotes and goodies during that time.
You can never have too many bags!
Love this pattern, have made probably 25 of these bags for myself, granddaughters, sister and others. Fun to pick out fabric , takes such a small bit so can use some crazy combinations.
Love it , love it.
Beautiful and functional. Loving it.
This is just the right size for me! I love small purses – this would be a great bag to make for Christmas gifts too!
I have to try the fleece but I love the “Run Around” bag pattern and have n
Made many of the bags. The Lazy Girl bag patterns are the BEST.
I love the runaround bag! I have made many for my daughter and me to use. This time of year I carry the one I made using WVU fabrics. I have Runaround Bags made in all seasonal fabrics and carry one of them all the time! Debbie in WV
Have made the run around in several fabrics its a winner every time!
Love this little bag, and the fabrics are always so fun! Can’t wait to try the new interfacings!
Just made a Candice last night using your new stiffer stuff. Love the new line of
What to do when you are unemployed? Sew bags! Need this lovely one!
Always love your choice of fabric. This is one bag I need to make!
I really like the new cover colors! Great bag!
I love little, hands-free bags when shopping – this one is perfect! Thanks for the opportunity to receive one.
This bag would be great for travelling. I really like your choices of fabrics. I’d love to win the pattern so that I could make it up for my next trip.
This is the greatest bag ever. I have made lots for myself and given them for gifts.
I HAVE made one in almost every color. It’s the only bag that I ever use. Carrying a large bag over one shoulder is not an option – really makes for a very sore shoulder. And believe me, you can get quite a bit in this bag!
This bag is soooo fashionable. I love it! I travel internationally and my immediate thought was “perfect size to carry my passport.” Thanks for sharing and I look forward to making this bag.
I made one of these for each lady on our church’s mission teams going to Tanzania and New York this summer. Great pattern.
If ever the sewing world needed a new product, it is fusible fleece. Can’t wait to try yours. If it is as easy to use as your patterns, it will be a staple for me.
I love your new bag and it would be perfect to take to work each day with just the essentials. I love your new fleece as well…just the right weight for bags. I plan on mafing a bunch of the bags for Christmas gifts this year.
I love this bag. It is perfect for running around and not having to take a larger bag. Can’t wait to try the Dreamy Fusible Fleece.
I like your bag, I dont know about the fusible fleece, I have never used that brand. I would love to try iy.
Hello beautiful looking fabric would love to make a bag with it.
I love this fabric and would love to make the Runaround Bag. I have made many bags with your patterns and your instructions are awesome. I too hate zippers so look forward to these instructions. Thanks for all your patterns
I love purse’s and have several of your patterns this one I love ,if I don’t win I’ll be buying, the black ,yellow is awesome,,,,
Looks like a bag I can downsize to for every day “running around” errands. Love it!
What a wonderful give away. Love the pattern and wold love to try your fleece.
This is one of the “lazy” patterns I don’t have – always love the patterns and the designs! Would love to give this bag a try.
Like others I’ve probably made this bag a dozen times. It’s a great little bag for fat quarters and sturdy zippers. It is also big enough to hold my sunglasses which I appreciate. I’ve thought of using Soft and Stable to give it a little more “tooth”, but will also want to try your new fusible fleece. Hope it will be carried in my local quilt shop that carries your patterns.
I have been thinking hard about getting this pattern. I LOVE the simple lines, the pocket in the back and I am dying to try your zipper method. I would like to try the fusible fleece. This would really make my day!
I have made several Runaround bags and always make a matching Wonder Wallet. It is just the perfect size because I have learned that it holds all I really need!
It’s the perfect size!
I have never worked with Dreamy Fusible. I would welcome the chance to do so. It sounds wonderful to work with. Cann’t wait to try it
I just love small and compact purses,,this is perfect for me!!! I have COPD and spend a lot of time at my sewing machine!
I’m so excited to try your fusible fleece!! What better then a chance to win some along with one of your awesome patterns!!
I have this pattern and have used it many times. Now, to try it with the new Dreamy Fusible.
I love the bag . Love the fabric combination choices in making this bag too! Very nice !
I just made my daughter one this week after she saw mine. I’m making a Wonder Wallet to match. These are great for running around college.
This looks like it would be great for Christmas gifts to all the girls in my family. Thanks for the chance!!
What a great little bag pattern! It would be great for whipping up a quick gift or a teaching project for someone learning to sew!
The Runaround Bag is an awesome bag. I have made it for myself and have given it as gifts. Everyone really enjoys using it. The entire bag is so easy to make but the zipper is one of the easiest zippers I have ever put in. Joan, you are amazing. Thanks for great patterns. You make them so that anyone can enjoy sewing a beautiful purse. Blessings………..Camille
My smartphone is just too big to tuck into my pocket when I get up from my desk…looks like I could run aroung the office (sorry…couldn’t resist) with this bag. Just the perfect size for my smartphone, business cards, keys & a few $$$.
I love the size of the runaround bag…..just big enough for the essentials and not being heavy…..great for shopping and quick trips. Helen K
I would love to this a try. Cute bag.
I love this bag and the fabrics on the cover are great. I need to try it out. thanks for the giveaway Joan.
This bag would be very handy to use when you are going out for the night for dinner. I would love to make one.
This is something that I would really use. I have got to check out our local shops to see if anyone is carrying your fusible fleece. It sounds wonderful
I am soo ready for a smaller bag . I am tired of hauling my big bag everywhere and your “Runaround Bag” is just what I need. I would love to make one for myself and friends and family for Christmas.
This bag would be perfect to put in my teacher bag so I don’t have to carry two bags to school. I could carry the Runaround Bag at lunch and for errandsnafter school. Would love to win the pattern and fleece!
I have this pattern and am making several for Christmas gifts. This is the cutest bag and will have to try the fusible fleece in them. Love the new cover.
Love – love – love! Am anxious to try your zipper method. I love all your products.
I love the “new” runaround bag. What a great name for such a functional bag! Thanks for the giveaway.
I haven’t tried that fleece yet, but love your bags.
Love this idea, thanks for sharing it with usQ
Choosing a zipper is a design activity? I heart that concept. Saturday at the fabric store I fussed over a zipper decision for ten minutes – who knew this wasn’t just a mundane activity? Looks like the Runaround would make a good passport/travel doc carrier. Btw I’m stalking your new fusibles in Canada.
Love this design and would love to make some for each season so they would be fetive as well as functional.
I would love to give your new stabilizer a try. I love your bag patterns and especially love the easy directions and the fact that you make things so simple. Thank you.
I love this bag for so many reasons. : the pattern is easy to follow ,the zipper is easy ,quick to make and very cute. It is the perfect size with the wonder wallet. I can take it where every go. There is so much I love about this bag.
What a handy little bag for going to market. Love that it can go cross body to keep your hands free:)
I love your new bag, it is just the right size for me as I like smaller bags. Thanks for the chance of winning one.
I haven’t found a shop that carries all the new fleece products. I was in Reno and didn’t find it. I don’t know if the small shops in the area where I live will carry it but I will keep looking.
Love this little bag and the lining looks awesome!
Great little bag! Would love to make a few for Christmas gifts!
Love the Runaround Bag! The first one I made only took me about 2 hours start to finish. It’s a great pattern. My daughter also made one, took her a little longer, but it was her first project that wasn’t a 9 patch small quilt top.
I love this bag. I have been making the really small yoyo’s and putting them above the zipper, and putting the slightly bigger yoyo on different bags, below the zipper. It’s fun embellishing them. They make great gifts.
Just 2 FQs!!! What a deal for such a cute purse!!
I love this bag…it looks like it would be easy to whip up a few in no time. thanks for the giveaway….
The Runaround Bag is super cute and practical, for those times when I don’t want to carry my giant Mom bag. I love your patterns, Joan!
Can’t wait to make the runaround bag for myself. I love simple bags when I’m going out.
I love the size of this bag. And look forward to trying the Dreamy Fusible Fleece, having used a lot of the Pellon fusible fleece.
Been eyeing that pattern and would love to try out the new fleece!
My daughter would love the Runaround Bag. I’m anxious to try the new fleece.
This bag is just what I’ve been looking for — just the right size for taking to craft shows!
I carry my Runaround Bag inside my other Lazy Bags. It holds two Wonder Wallets and a lipstick. At the end of the day, when my Lazy of the day gets heavy I just pop out my Runaround and I have everything I really need. I can’t wait to try the fleece.
I love this little purse, but would especially like to try the fusible fleece. Both items are great!
I love this pattern. I have made around 35 of them and everyone I show them to, loves them. Tried your Dreamy Fleece yesterday. I am impressed. I’ve been using PELLON 987 for all my bags and the inconsistency of it drives me nuts. I never know if the bolt is going to be thick or thin. I’m welcoming your new products with open arems.
I saw a Runaround Bag this last weekend at an Avocado Festival in California. I commented on it and she told me it was the Runaround. Made me want to go right home and sew. I am going to Europe for New Years and meeting family from all points of the world. The Runaround would make a great gift to take to the ladies, young and not so young, in our family gathering!
Love this bag! Can’t wait to try your fusible fleece!
I love Lazy Girl Design bags. I’m carrying one right now! I’m anxious to try the new Dreamy Fleece.
Thanks for your wonderful designs.
I LOVE this bag! I haven’t tried the fusible fleece yet, but can’t wait to! I would like to make all the girls on my list a Runaround Bag for Christmas – oh, and make one for me, too!
This bag is perfect for those on the go items when you don’t want to carry a big purse. The dreamy fusible makes it even easier to sew. Would love this!
I haven’t tried the new interfacings yet but my shop where I buy my supplies (River Place Quilt and Sew in East China,MI) is them in stock now. I can hardly wait.
I need one of these bags so much-fingers crossed!
I really like the size of this bag since I don’t like a heave purse and sometimes I just need a bag for the essential items.
I love lazy girl bags. This runaround is a great little bag. I can’t wait o try the fusible fleece. Love lazy.
Thank you for sharing the Run Around Bag with us. Haven’t tried the fleece or other of your stabilizers. Not carried near here, but would be nice to try some.
This is a great bag – would love to have it
I love this bag! Made 25 of them as gifts for a family reunion — they were a hit. Would love to try with your new fusible fleece! ( i have always used pellon’s fusible fleece before)
I put a zipper in a little bag last night for the first time! Would love to try again with this precious bag.
I would love to try this pattern.
I’ve been anxious to try making this cute little bag and especially to learn how to install the zipper. Wouldn’t this be the perfect little bag to make for my 4 yr old granddaughter 🙂
WOW! I like what I see. This is the first I have heard about this and I really like the bag! Thanks for sharing this!
Thanks for your generosity in offering this as a prize. It’s a great pattern!
LOVE! LOVE! Lazy Girl Bag Patterns! Hopefully this will be my chance to try the Run Around Bag. It’s just the perfect size for my grand daughter!
I love the run around bag and the fleece! You have a very informative news letter. I really enjoy reading it!!
I love the new cover for the pattern. I haven’t yet tried the fusible fleece in a small bag, but this does give give me some new ideas. Thanks!
This bag would be perfect to take to the fall craft fairs. Leaves you hands free!
I absolutely love this bag.I have lots of fat quarters shouting at me to sew them into this bag.
It would be perfect for my trip to London this Christmas! And I have the perfect material!
This bag is so cute. There are times I don’t like taking my big handbag with me, especially when shopping. This would be great to take your wallet and a few necessities and cross it over from your shoulder. It would be light and your hands are free. Very nice.
The Runaround Bag looks great. Would be great for travel carrying your passport and money. I think it would make a great gift for teenagers also. It is Fat quarter friendly. Everyone should make one.
Joan I know you’ve tested this fleece. Anytime you have recommended a product in one of your patterns. I have not gone wrong by getting exactly what you recommended. I definitely will use Dreamy Fusible. I love your patterns. Have several and i look forward to the new ones to come.
would love to try the pattern and the fleece!
This fusible fleece seems great for many projects, not only this cute bag.
This is the first purse I ever made! I am dying to try out your new fusible products. Your patterns are what started my obsession with bag making, so I know I’ll love them too. Thanks for being such an inspiration, and making it easy for the rest of us be creative!
Dreamy seems to be made for projects like this purse. Anxious to try it out.
Oh, I want to try this stuff out! Looks like exactly what I need for a bag project, plus would love to try this bag as well. So cute!!!
I have made several of these bags and love, love, love them! The pattern would make a wonderful gift for a sewing pal. Can’t wait to try your fusibles. Thanks for the giveaway.
What a great bag! Love the pattern.
I have made a number of these bags & they are great. My elderly mother loves it as it fits nice around her body & carries her essentials such as keys etc.
I love the Runaround bag. I have made several other Lazy Girl purses and always loved them. Your tutorials rock! This would be a grat little purse to make for friends!
love that little bag
Love this little bag! Makes it much easier to get around rather than dragging a huge purse from place to place.
Thanks for the giveaway,
What a wonderful pattern – it is the perfect size. I don’t need a huge bag that can carry everything I own (’cause that is what I would do!). I need a bag that forces me to edit what I am lugging around. Thanks for the chance to win!
Once again you have hit a home run with your updated cover for the Runaround Bag and your fleece product sounds just wonderful. I have never been more confused than standing at the row of interfacings at the LQS and trying to decide from their non-descriptions just what would work for the project I was planning. Your descriptions and names of your products are perfect, Smart lady!!
It’s an adorable bag and I would love to have the pattern. I’m also dying to try the Dreamy fusible fleece. Please pick me. 🙂
The runaround bag looks adorable. Have made (and loved) most of your other bags, but not this one yet. Looks wonderful for traveling or quilt shows! Haven’t tried your new products as have not seen them locally, this would be a great start.
Love the bag design and fabric. Hoping to be lucky in the giveaway.
I love this bag. Will be so great for traveling. Will also make lovely Christmas presents for my quilting friends.
Thanks for creating all these wonderful patterns.
i love your patterns and instructions are wonderful.can’t wait to use your new fusibles
I just love the style of this bag. It will be great to wear for those shopping days when I need both hands. Please pick me.
I just learned how to put in a zipper–this bag would be perfect for me! I love your bag patterns–very easy to follow. I will have to add this one to my collection! Thanks for the giveaway!
What a great palette for all kinds of fabric and sewing techniques! You go Girl!
Great idea, looks interesting enough to be a nice little challenge!
The LGD Runaround bag is one of my favorites. Made several of them over the years. Will have to give your new dreamy fusable fleece a try on one of them…
I LOVE the runaround pattern, I made my granddaughter one for every holiday!
i think by now i’ve made 5 runaround bags … love these bags and am going to enlarge one for my kindle; it has a leather cover but i just need something to carry it in and this works sooo well … or … maybe i’ll make the back pocket longer and stuff it in there …. or …. well, you can see there are a lot o options here ….
thanks for the pattern; i love it …. darlene
Love this bag…..and love my Candace Bag:). Thank you for the opportunity.
This is a great looking bag. Look forward to giving it a try.
The Runaround Bag is on my to-do list. Since I broke my ankle on Sept. 9 I haven’t been able to sew and it is driving me crazy. Your new batting line sounds great. Can’t wait to give it a try.
This bag looks like the perfect size for carry e-reader. Thank you for describing Dreamy Fleece and how it differs from Pellon. I’m looking forward to trying it soon.
I’ve never used Dreamy Fusible, so must give it try. Your patterns are attractively designed, with useful features. Thanks for this offer.
Looks like a fun project. I’m as lazy as can be these days!
Love all your patterns. The runaround bag will be great for proms. Would love to try your interfacing.
This bag would be great for shopping! I’d love to try out the fleece.
This sounds fabulous, both the Dreamy Fusible Fleece and the Runaround Bag. No excuses not to try to make one!!!
never tried it but want to would love to win thanks
This runaround bag is great. I have used it myself when just a small bag would do and also, my granddaughter loves it for school.
Very Cute. I make a lot of bags. Usually big (but not that big), but this is a great size for throwing over head and take off to get all your errands done without the fuss of a big bag.
Love this little Runaround Bag can’t wait to try it out with your new Dreamy Fusible Fleece.
Sounds great not to have to quilt it and the material pattern can be the visual.
Love it !
I would love to make the runaround bag – just the right size for a quick run to the store. The fusible fleece sounds “dreamy”. I am anxious to use this.
This would be a great bag for my 4 teenaged grand daughters!
This will be so perfect for my granddaughter!! Teenagers are pretty particular about what they carry, and I know this will be a hit!!
Please enter me in the giveaway. Thanks!
I use this style of ‘purse’ as a wallet! When I need a larger purse I just throw it in the larger bag… most of the time, though, it’s all I need for running errands!
The bag is so cute! I like to travel light all of the time. The fusible fleece sounds convenient and I’d love to try it.
Would love to give this pattern a try!
I love this Runaround bag & would like the pattern to make several colors for me and several for gifts for other people!
This is a handy looking bag and I’d love to try out your fleece! That’s for the chance to win some.
Love you patterns . You make it so easy with your directions..
i LOVE the runaround bag! its sew easy and your directions are sooo good my granddaughter has one for every holiday!
That is the perfect bag for my two daughters and I would love to win the pattern to make it for them for Christmas!
This bag is ideal for my granddaughters and me too. I will be making some new bags. I bought some fusible fleece, ready to try it. Keep up the good work and may God bless you.
This is so cute and would look great in any combination of fabrics from my stash! Thanks for the great giveaway!
Would love to try both the pattern and fleece. Thanks for all your wonderful patterns:)
Love this bag, it is so cute! I just tried the Dreamy Fuisible…think it is now my first choice. Great job on bag design and the Dreamy!!!
What a great bag! I know a ton of people who would love to have this on their Christmas list. Suites both young and old. Great for times when carrying around a big purse with everything you own is not an option…haha. I would just love to whip up a couple of these for gifts…(and myself.)
I have quite a few LG patterns, but not this one – I love it and know it would be a hit with my daughters!
This bag looks so great, love the colors! Looks like it would be good for those busy days of running around town and not wanting a big bulky bag to get in the way!
WOW, just the bag I’ve been looking for. This style will hold only a few necessary items, keeps arms and hands free. It’s perfect to fit just the right things for a trip to the casino.
My friend and I made this bag to go on our shop-hops. It is just right for when you are going into 8 or 9 shops.
Would love to try the fusible fleece!… Gracie is wonderful too!
I love what this bag has to offer. I showed it to my 23-year-old daughter and she loved it too. She is hard to please.
I love that Lazy Girl Bag. Citron, black and gray my colors for sure. I use iron on all the time. Thanks for a chance to win
That’s the only Lazy Girl pattern I don’t own! Pick me, pick me!!
I love the bag pattern, I have never used the dreamy fleece but would love to try it out soon. Thanks for the giveaway.
I really like this pattern, I am learning to sew and love making purses and totes. This is a great size bag and would make a great gift for my daughter-in-law and my granddaughters mother. Thanks for the chance to win this pattern.

Bless you. I have been trying & trying to come up with a nice Christmas gifts for my sister’s granddaughters without breaking the bank. They will love this.

Cute little bag – can’t wait to make one!
Another new bag!! I can’t wait to try this one. The fusible fleece could be a real winner.
I love those colors! I’m new to Lazy and I love it!
So want to try the Dreamy Fusible fleece, I use fusible fleece all the time but have not seen Dreamy in store yet!
Very cute bag pattern!
I have a daughter-in-law with a birthday fast approaching, and this looks as if it might be perfect for her. Thanks!
I love this little purse! I’ve been looking for something to make for my mother who has taken to walking every day to keep up her fitness and carries her bits and pieces in a plastic shopping bag! This pattern will fit the bill!!
Looks like a great bag for a shopping trip.
This looks like the perfect size for my daughter!
I simply love this bag. I know my grand daughter and all her friends would love it also. Cant wait to get the pattern and help her make one.
I have used the fusible pellon fleece and this sounds wonderful! This purse is the perfect size to make one for every day of the week!
Just big enough to carry the essentials on a busy day!!!
A great sized bag to grab & go.
Love the simplicity of this bag. It would be great to carry tickets, passports, etc. and stay hands free. Can’t wait to try it.
Great looking little bag and the georgus fabric!!!!!!!!!
Would like to make it and use the new fusible fleece.
I think I love this bag because of the yellow and gray colors you chose. I haven’t had a chance to try the fleece yet but plan to. thanks
I volunteer sew at our local weaving center and I have used your pattern numerous times. With all the colors and textures of the scrap fabrics that I have to pick from and the limited time that I have to sew, this bag couldn’t be more perfect. This is a great pattern.
I love the runaround bag. Perfect for my day to day errands or a day at the flea market! Thanks for the generous giveaway.
I love that bag, it is adorable. I need to start sewing bags again, the last bag I finished was in July!
I have always loved this little bag and want to make it.
This is a great little purse, and it is so easy to put together! I made one last spring and couldn’t believe how quickly and easily it came together.
I’m so ready to try out your new batting!
I love, love, love this pattern. Just finished six!
This looks like a fun bag to make. I would love to try it. thank you
The runaround bag is really neat especially if it is easy;-) I’d love to have that pattern. tks for the chance.
I like the sound of your dreamy fleece and the looks of the bag. I made your Mini Miranda bag and your instructions were very clear and easy to make. Thanks for the chance to win.
I’d love to try this pattern using your new Dreamy fusible. This bag looks like it would be really handy to carry.
The bag is so adorable AND practical! I was just using some Pellon fusible fleece on a mug rug project this afternoon and was lamenting how stiff it made the little quilt sandwich feel. The Dreamy Fleece sounds wonderful.
Would love to make many of these for Christmas gifts!
Perfect for a long day of shopping!
I just love small bags for just taking the necessities. I can’t wait to try your new interfacings–bags are my favorite thing to create!
I love the Runaround bag, it looks perfect for traveling. It would also be perfect for cell phone and keys and Wonder Wallet. I have not had a chance to try the new Dreamy Fusible batting, but hope to soon. The new look of the pattern looks great.
What an adorable bag! And the cross body is just in time for the upcoming holiday shopping season. Hands Free!! Would make great Christmas gifts as well. Love to give this pattern a try.
I love the bag like to try the stiff stuff interfacing
Oh, I just LOVE this mini bag . . . the kind I love to use myself. And to have the pattern would mean using all sorts of fabrics to make one-of-a-kind bags to go with my clothes – and my moods! Thanks for the great giveaway. I’ll be trying that new fusible soon. Here’s hoping I win this time!!!!!
I love the style of the Runaround bag! As others have said this would make great gifts!
I love this bag! My daughters will love it! Thanks for the chance to win!
I am anxious to try the fleece. This bag looks like something my granddaughters would love and it looks like it would make up quickly enough for me to be able to make several.
This bag is perfect for traveling.Having this pattern mean I could make gifts for the holidays! I would love to try out fuseable fusion fleece. The winner will be one lucky lady!
I love this bag. For Christmas I am giving my girlfriend one for each season. I would love to try it with your new fusible fleece!
Would love to make this bag for my niece and myself. Love all your patterns. they are well written and go together easily.
Absolutly lovely bag, i would love to vinn it.
This bag is awesome and I can’t wait to try the dreamy fusible fleece!
Oh this bag is soo cute. This will be perfect to give to my girls for christmas this year. I have been wanting to make them a bag for the first time to give to them at christmas time and this one will be perfect. They are always on the go and do not like to carry their bigger purses for just doing a small errand or for when they go out and and just have fun with their friends. Perfect size for just their phones, ID’s, and their credit card and bank card holders they have. No more lugging around the big bags and wallets.
Love the Run Around bag. So simple and quick to make. I’ve added applique initials to the front of the bag for my mom and girls. Can’t wait to try it with dreamy fusible fleece. Thanks for the new SewLazy line of batting and interfacing.
I like the looks of the Run Around bag and would enjoy making and using one. I’ve never used Dreamy Fleece but will be sure to pick some up, it sounds like just the thing for several projects coming I’m beginning work on.
Very cute! I can see that bag in many Christmas boxes this year!
Travel to Flordia about 3 times a year, this would be a great little bag to travel with! Love it!
Once again, you are an inspiration to we Lazies everywhere. Thank you for sticking with us!!
I love this bag! Just the right size for going on a shop hop! ..or farmers market…etc. ^_^
I’m looking forward to using this pattern. It is just the perfect size for quick trips to the store and holds all my essentials.
Great little bag for those of us that want to shop hands-free and not drag a purse around!
This Runaround bag just begs to be taken on a trip somewhere; so handy for keeping passport and absolutely necessities right at hand in those moments when you’re arms are full and you’re scrambling for details! And my daughter would use one everyday because she likes to travel light.
Love the bag, so cute and would be great to make and take on my cruize! Would love to try the Dreamy Fusible Fleece – havent tried it yet. Thanks for the chance to win.
I have this pattern and STILL need to make the bag. My pattern is several iterations old though. I love your work!
I’m just sayin’ you can never have too many bags and this one would be fab!
This is a great bag. From the looks of it, your new dream fusible fleece gives it a bit more oomph.
This is also a great bag to make for younger Lazy Girls, like the toddler to primary school ones. It is small enough for them to not be overwhelmed,but large enough that they can actually use it for school and such.
Love this bag. looking forward to trying the new fleece.
I have made several Lazy Girl Bags – I’d love to have this pattern. Would make a good travel bag with the zip pocket for boarding passes.
This bag is perfect for my fabric shopping trips, as well as for ‘to and from’ work. It would make a great Christmas gift too.
perfect on-the-go bag

I love the pattern. This will be a great bag to throw my essentials in while traveling, weekend errands, and those trips to the zoo.
I love this bag, just my style for quick little outings, and I adore your fabric choices!
I want to make one!
I love the size and the color of the bag.
I love this darling design. I have a small shop and look for designs that people would like to purchase. This one would be a hit! I would love to showcase your design in my new little shop and promote your blog. I also would really like to try the pattern and fleece to see how easy this one would be to make. There are several ladies that I know would love this one as a bag to carry while riding on there bikes, as well as for a little girl bag. Thanks for putting this one out for a give away…Susie’s Stash
I love the size of this bag!! Great to take along when doing a lot of walking and don’t want a heavy purse to carry. Thanks for all the great bag and purse patterns.
I have never tried sewing with the fusible fleece,,, but would love to make this great new bag!!
I would absolutely love to win this so I could convince myself to do this!! I do things more “old school” rather than trying new products,,, I have to put this on top of my bucket list of new products to try!!
Love my Runaround … it saves me carrying too much junk 🙂 All your new interfacings and fusibles make so much sense – especially to a Lazy Girl. Can’t wait to try them all out.
This would be a great bag for holidays. I’d love to try fusible fleece. Thanks for giveaway.
just found this website a while ago. haven’t yet fully checked it out. but this bag is one that i definately want to make.
That’s a pretty “to go” purse. I’m looking for something not to hard to make. Thanks!
These bags are absolutely adorable! I love the runaround bag, it’s perfect for a minimalist like me! 😀
I love to try new interfacings and new bag patterns. They often give me the opportunity to teach a class (with the designer’s permission, of course) and share a new product with other quilters.
The bag looks like a great project for Christmas presents! Thank you for the opportunity to win.
Oh this is so cute! The name rings true for me…my husband calls me the “runaround girl” because I’m always running after my grandkids and doing countless errands! This would be perfect for me!
As always, LOVE your designs!
Such a cute bag — it just might fit an ereader also. I would love to make one of these and I love the fabric as well.
The runaround bag looks like a great pattern for someone … such as me … wanting to try making some kind of bag for the first time. I think it would make sweet Christmas gifts, too.
I love the look of this bag and I am anxious to give your dreamy fusible fleece a try. I really enjoy making bag, but they have to serve a purpose. This bag would be perfect to tote my Kindle Fire around. The dimensions might need to be adjusted a little but it would be perfect. I have made several of your bags because of the great instructions, short cuts, feature you incorporate in them. Thanks for the opportunity to win this gift.
As soon as I receive my pattern and the fleece the bag is MINE. I have some fabric that needs to be a Runaround Bag”.
This little bag looks so handy for gadding about. I would really love to make one for each of my 7 granddaughters and 3 great granddaughters for Christmas. I’ve used some of your patterns and have not found one I didn’t really enjoy making because your instructions are even easy enough for this 80 year old grandma.
A friend made me this little bag for a recent trip. it was just big enough for using at the resort. I love it and want to make some myself in lots of different colors/patterns.
This was probably one of the first of many Lazy Girl bags I have made. I always urge people who compliment my purses to try LG patterns because the zippers are SO EASY.
I love having a purse to match outfits. The yellow, black, white and gray are awesome together. To me it is like a sassy elegant color combination.
Love all your bag patterns. Thank you for having this contest.
Cute pattern — like the zipper! Always up for a new batt.
Love the bag – fun use of fabric!
Just love the bag, will be great to do small instead of the large thing i usually carry around.Can’t wait to try the Dreamy fusible stuff
This bag is awesome! Exicited to use it. Thanks.
Love the bag. The Dreamy fusible sounds great. Will look for it to try.
Love this bag! Perfect when you don’t want to carry around all the extra clutter in your purse. Or would be PERFECT for my daughter to take to dance and keep her shoes in. Would LOVE this pattern….
This looks like a great bag for quick trips out and also a great small bag to have in a larger bag or suitcase. Awesome bag. Thanks!
I love Lazy Girls bags. I have almost all of their patterns and enjoy working on them. Can’t wait till I get the Run Around Bag.
I love this purse and would love to make it!
I love Lazy Girl Designs and can’t wait to give this little bag a try!
I love your Lazy Girl designs! It would be nice when you have a simple design, like the Runaround Bag, you could post and purchase these as a PDF file. That way I would not have to go to the store to find the pattern and if I couldn’t find at the store I could down load and start working on these tonight.
Thank you and love the blog.
This looks like the perfect bag for taking on my upcoming cruise.
The Runaround Bag is so cute, I would love to make one! Lazy girl designs has inspired me to create projects I never would have. I would love to share the Runaround Bag with the ladies in my sewing class!
Thank you, Marilyn
I am teaching a group of Girl Scouts to sew. This would be a terrific project for them to learn new skills and have a really cute, personalized item for themselves when they’re finished! What young girl wouldn’t absolutely love a Runaround?
I Love Lazy Girl patterns, and this looks like a fun bag to make. I made several Candace bags for Christmas gifts and everyone loved them!
Joan hooo laaalaaa, i love this cute bag very nice to take on travel trips or just shopping when you don,t want to carry a heavy purse around ,i would to make this bag even if i don,t win give away lol
I always look forward to your new designs!
This is a great little bag, fun to make. They make great gifts and you can sew one in an hour once you’ve made a few.
I really love the fusiable fleec. Your colors are so wonderful as you choose the designs of the bags.
Joan, What a wonderful little bag. I travel quite often and to have a lite-weight bag “to sling across your shoulder” is a blessing! I’m about to take another trip to India to an orphanage and I can make this to match what I am going to wear on the plane and I will be beautifully accessorized! A gorgeous little bag to match my outfit!
Can’t wait to make this bag
This bag looks great ! I would love to make it and I already have the fabrics I want to use. But then on the other hand, shopping for just the perfect fabric is so much. Oh, the agony.
My favorite size bag….love the fabric combinations!
very handy for traveling
I love these runabout bags! Perfect for my teenage grand daughters
I would love to make one for a Christmas gift for my grand daughter. Like your fleece also!
I love the little round around bag. It would make a great bag for gifts for friends. I would love to try the Dreamy fusible. This is the first I’ve heard of it! Thanks
The runaround bag
very cute I know my grand daughter would just love it
as I do the adjustable strap and crossover option makes this bag one that can
be used anywhere I have always loved your patterns this one is perfect for any
young at heart.
I use your dreamy fusible fleece its great for the backpacks I make I just love it.
Thank you for sharing the runaround bag with us
i LOVE the runaround bag and the Dreamy fusible fleece is fantastic. I use it all the time. Fran
I like that bag and believe I could make one or two or three because I know how my friends always want what I make. This time I keep for one myself though. Thanks.
Looks perfect for those window shopping sprees in Kansas City on the “Plaza” and in Branson at “The Landing”. I love the size and the cross over strap. Thanks for a chacne to win.
These would be great for my granddaughters for Christmas!
love, love, love this neat little bag !!!! i made one for myself and one for my grand daughter !
Where can I get this cute bag pattern? I like the fusible fleece. It is thicker and softer than what I bought at Jo Ann’s. I am going to buy some next time I am there.
Please let me know about the pattern?
Where can I buy this pattern? Please
I need the pattern for the small bag for a Birthday gift soon thanks
I love the Runaround bag and have not tried the Dreamy Fleece but I will do so soon as I think it sounds like a much better option!!
I love this little bag and can’t wait to get some fun fabric and try it.
Love the design on the Runaround Bag, looks easy to make and each section compliments the other. Can’t wait.
I love the simple design. You can dress it up or dress it down. Great gift too!
I purchased the Lazy Girl Designs “Runaround Bag” pattern from the Country Stitches store in East Lansing, MI a few months ago. I opened the pattern packet up tonight and discovered that Country Stitches has inserted a piece of paper into the pattern that said, “Shop Hop Bag (changes to Runaround Bag).” It was obvious that they had mistakenly mixed the instructions for two different projects onto one “correction insert.”
Among other directions that don’t make any sense is one that says, “We need to make the bag 1″ larger, so:
1. In all cutting directions where it tells you to cut 8″ cut 9″ instead.” The remainder of the directions are very clearly from another pattern because it is talking about trimming the license plate and add the license plate….
I’m wondering if there were any other corrected instructions for the Runaround Bag, besides cutting 9″ every place it says to cut 8″. Please let me know as soon as possible.
I´m looking forward to try this cute bag!
Love it just wish I could of seen you finish it.
I’ve been looking for this forever
Love the bag, but I’m new to sewing and would have loved to have seen a finished video on how to sew the bag. How did you cut the zipper and how is it set up? Are there supposed to be raw edges inside? Do you have a complete instructional video to show from beginning to end?
Yes, the complete project is available in my Craftsy class ‘Zip It Up’.
I love this bag and would love to have the pattern if you still have it. I see the date is long past.
I totally love the runaround bag! It’s such a practical shape and I have a fat quarter of waterproof fabric that would make a gorgeous one!
I am not good with zippers but I’ve just bought a zip foot for my machine so it’s time to get over the fear!
I would love to make this bag . What I like about this bag it is not bulky.
I would love this bag it’s really lovely ?
