Lazy Girl Designs. Joan is a fabulous purse designer and she has a bag suited for everyone's taste and needs. I only wish I could come up with that many designs all different, interesting and functional. I'm thinking she might consider changing her business name from Lazy Girl Designs to "The Hard Working Gal Formerly Known as The Lazy Girl Designer."
Margo Handbag. The small wallet up front is the Wonder Wallet and the taller one in the back to the left of the photo is the Maggie Pattern. The wallet I carry is the Wonder Wallet pattern and I'm telling you I need to make a new one and fast. (Mine is very dirty...that's why I never mentioned it to Joan when I saw her....imagine my embarrassment if she had seen that filthy wallet....yikes....she doesn't know lazy!)
Joan's latest pattern is the Lily Pocket Purse and it is only available for pre-order. The patterns are expected to be released early October. There is an excellent photo of the inside of this purse on Joan's blog....just click here to see what I'm talking about :)
I love the fun print on this Margo Handbag. Just change the fabric and you have a great purse for the fall and winter too. That is what I love about carrying a handmade purse....being able to make another one in a different fabric for myself or as a gift.
I love the name of this bag, the Whimsy Bag. I just like the word....Whimsy....Whimsy....Whimsy....
You may have known Joan has designed all of these incredible patterns and so many more....honestly....so many more....but did you know she wrote a quilting book too? I didn't until recently...check this out:
Joan makes 24 different Lazy Angle Blocks and uses them to make more than 230 block combinations....and she still keeps calling it Lazy. So if you are truly lazy, like me, then you can use the Lazy Angle Ruler to make your cutting so much faster and accurate....she has again done all the work for us.
Hmmmm....do you think the Lazy refers to me? Us? Yikes....I can speak for myself....indeed I am lazy and I don't want or need to re-create the wheel, television, Internet or anything else....I'm so lazy there would be none of those inventions if it were left up to me!!!
