My favourite pattern designer, hands down, is Joan Hawley aka Lazy Girl Designs.
I have been sewing for 45 (gulp) years, and her methods make so much sense! The thing is, you sort of have to leave what you know behind, and just trust her. She does things in new and different ways, and it always works out. Afterwards, I’m left thinking about how brilliant she is, and that I am forever changed. This makes her patterns excellent for new and experienced sewists alike!
Right now I am offering a special on Joan’s latest pattern, the Bendy Bag. Buy the pattern and get one yard of Dreamy Fusible (also from Lazy Girl) for $14 plus shipping and taxes! You’ll have enough fusible to make more than one Bendy, because you just can’t stop at one.
Sew the zipper in flat, then bend the bag and stitch to create Bendy’s adorable funky shape! Bendy is perfect for toting gear, cords, goodies and more. Bendy unzips in one motion and stands at attention with a wide mouth for easy access. Features our Perfect Zipper technique.
