The Bendy Bag – The Newest Member of the Lazy Girl Family

The Lazy Girl Bendy Bag is the #1 tote bag this week in the Checker 100 for a reason.


Item #LGD134  Retail $9.00

The clean lines and simple angles are visibly showcased in clear bright solid fabrics with contrasting zippers and accents.  It is easier than it looks.  Sew the zipper in straight, then bend the bag and stitch to create this funky shape.  The 3″ x 6″ x 6″ size makes it the perfect choice for storing cords, sewing supplies, or make-up.  The three inch width guarantees that the bag stands up whether open or closed – and the curved zipper opens wide to reveal all of the treasures inside.  Use the zipper “scraps” to create a pull tab – what could be cuter???  Of course, she chose an Atkinson 14″ zipper so there are a multitude of colors to choose from.  After all, when the zipper is part of the statement, you only want the best!

But to create a quality bag, you must have quality tools and notions.  Proper pressing can make the difference between a designer look – and a “Mom” made.

Joan recommends her pressing tool line created with the folks at Clover:

This 2×4 Mighty Mini Board makes it easy to press all of those nooks and crannies that give the bag its unique shape.


Item #7800CV  Retail $46.95

This Iron Safe protects the fabric while pressing so scorching is no longer a concern.  A pressing cloth is a thing of the past…


Item #7804CV  Retail $27.95

The Iron Finger is heat resistant so you can get up close and personal with your iron without burning anything!


Item #7802CV  Retail $15.75

A quality product starts from the inside out, however.  And this bag is no exception.  Dreamy Fusible Fleece provides the body needed when a stand-up job is required!

You won’t be able to make just one!

  1. I love this bag. It is so fun that I can’t stop making them! I’m up to 12 now. I discovered that with a half yard of each fabric, you can make 3 bags instead of 2. They are a great gift for friends.
    I will have fun teaching this class!

  2. The articles are written in advance – and at the time I wrote the article, we had plenty of inventory and the buyer had already placed an order for more – which are available today. Hope this helps…

  3. When following Joan’s instructions, it is really easy to make this bag up. It is really a novelty. I like the idea of using part of the zipper for the tab. After receiving my pattern in the mail, I couldn’t wait to make one up. It really wasn’t that complicated. I completed mine in just a few hours. It is a great addition to Joan’s purse/tote/bag Lazy Girl Designs collection. Have several other of Joan’s bag patterns in my pattern stash too.

  4. Do u have the pattern in stock and do I get it thru Lazy girl Designs or here.?
    I am new at quilting and sewing so I am always glad to see new sites with the products needed. Thanks

  5. If you are a store you can purchase from us. If you are a consumer check with your local quilt shop. If they don’t have it most will order it for you
