Description

This is the famous Lazy Girl Run-ARound bag pattern.  I love this pattern and have made it so many times, I can do it without the instructions now. 

This bag is a grad gift for a young lady we know who will be attending Arizona State University in the fall.   I found a FQ in the maroon that is one of the university colors and used a gold from my stash and added the embroidered embellishment.  Inside lining is the gold fabric that you see on the back.  For this bag I tried the iron on fleece and I put it in the front pieces as well as the back piece for a slightly sturdier bag. 

I'll add a gift card to go with it too.

Cute bag...too bad it does not say U of A! ;)

Thank you for the compliment. So, you'd like to see a U of A bag done in those colors, eh?????? We have family on both sides. My 2 sons attended ASU for Barrett Honors College and great scholarships they were both awarded. Our family in Phoenix are all U of A folk though, so there is lots of good-natured teasing that goes on.

Speattle mentioned the teasing in her comment...my favorite was when we went to a football game at ASU and the marching band was getting ready to play the national anthem. They arranged themselves to spell USA...and my cousin (U of A fan) leaned over to my brother and said, "Geez, your school can't even spell its own initials right!"

We are Wildcats all the way...well, my husband and I. All the kids stayed in WA for school. We have been to a few games at ASU stadium, this year we are going to Tucson for Homecoming. I do however have ASU fabric...I made a graduation quilt in 2007 for a friend who got his degree at the age of 55.

Where in WA? that is where I live. My daughter stayed local for college, attending Seattle U and the UW.

I suppose you found the ASU fabric down there? I've never seen it up here. I do see the UW fabric and the (YUCK!!!!!) dreaded wsu print.

We live in Vancouver. Our kids attended WWU, CWU, UW, and WSU. We pretty much covered the state for close to 20 years. First child began college in 1992 and last one graduated 2011. I got the ASU fabric online.

hey, we are practically neighbors! ;) I'm just up I-5 a ways, and across the bridge on the east side of Lake Washington. I have cousins who went to CWU and WSU, and sisters who went to WWU and Eastern in Cheney. This fall a niece and nephew are going to Evergreen State, Guess between you and me our families have hit all the state universities.

My husband works for UW Football, but none of our kids matriculated there. The two boys got such amazing scholarship offers from the honors college at ASU and they wanted to go farther away, so off they went. The oldest went on to a masters at Stanford and now a PHD at University of Texas. The youngest just graduated a year ago and has been working, but will stay at ASU for grad school this fall.

My daughter, while graduating from Seattle U, was on ROTC scholarship and took her military science classes at the UW, so she is part Husky and cheers for us rather than her brothers who cheer for ASU.

We used to live in Edmonds...in the mid-80's. I am not a fan of the Puget Sound area...too many people. :)
My kids are the ones who started Threadbias...well, oldest son and oldest daughter...plus daughter-in-law. I don't post much because we have a new foster baby. I will have to get back to sewing when she moves on.

Janquilter I went to Edmonds High school!

And your kids are GENIUS! I love this site. Visit it everyday and love how easy it is to enter projects, etc.

Our kids went to Mukilteo schools...Picnic Point.
My kids are pretty much cool people. The new design program is fantastic.
I am now teaching my granddaughter to sew. She is nearly 10 and I will give her a machine for ehr birthday. She loves to piece quilts.

How wonderful for your granddaughter. What machine is she getting for her birthday. I know she is young, but does she have a Threadbias studio? Maybe that is against TOS being a child and all. I just think it is really inspiring to see what kids can make.

I have a 12 year old niece who has come over a couple of times and sewn small things with me. I love it! But she is also on a competitive swim club team and runs track at her junior high, so not much time for sitting still with her.

Janquilter

I have not decided yet on what machine to get. I am looking at Singer, Brother and Janome. All offer simple machines for a good price. She does not have her own Threadbias studio.

I hope you can post pictures of her projects on your studio page then. That is what I have done for my niece.
