Jun 05, 2014

You could win a set of Bag-E-Bottoms by Lazy Girl Designs.

Totes and handbags are useful accessories, but sometimes they have difficulty holding your essentials because the bag bottoms aren’t rigid enough. With Bag-E-Bottoms by Lazy Girl Designs, that is no longer a problem. Featured in the “New & Noteworthy” department of Threads Handbag special issue, Bag-E-Bottoms are custom acrylic bases made to be sewn into the bottoms of bags, and they come in a variety of sizes and proportions.

To celebrate the release of the Threads Handbags special issue, we are giving away a set of six different sizes of bag liners. These bases are perfect for use in the handbags you will learn how to make in this issue.

For a chance to win these useful bag supports, just leave a comment letting us know why you would like to win by 11:59 p.m. EDT on June 17. One lucky person will be randonly chosen to receive the set of six Bag-E-Bottoms.

    Tried these while making a class sample. Love them!

  2. User avater Hope_Marie June 14th

    These are great products, I have used them in projects. I wouldn't mind winning them. :))

  3. User avater wicked_stitcher June 13th

    this would so end all the "wool gathering" of materials i've been doing to try to find a great bottom for my bags. oh puhleez, put me outta my misery!

  4. user-3485151 June 12th

    what a marvelous idea.

  5. LeeWells June 10th

    There are several bags in my closet that could use a firmer bottom. Some were purchased, some I made, they all sag! Bag-E-Bottoms sound like the ideal solution to the sagging.

  6. Jan111 June 8th

    I made only one handbag EVER. I didn't like the saggy bottom and didn't know how to make the bottom sturdy so I never made another handbag. This miracle product would solve my saggy bottom (well the purse bottom). :) Thank you for the chance to win!

    Always looking for something new to try out. Constant search for improvements

    THE BOTTOM OF THE BAGS WHEREALWAYS THE PROBLEM WOULD LOVE TO WIN IT

  9. cimarti June 7th

    I've made six purses now but they might look much better with a solid bottom. I would love to try these Bag-E-Bottoms!

  10. summer June 7th

    I am just beginning to explore making bags and have purchased on of your patterns to begin my journey. Would love to try these as I do not like a flat bottom. These would be a joy to try. Thank You.

    a girl can never have too many bags! and there's nothing worse than a limp bag with no structure.

  12. SewScarlett June 7th

    I love Lazy Girl Designs bag patterns and have made several. I only have a couple of bag-e-bottoms, so winning a set would be awesome! Thanks for the chance to win.

  13. User avater user-1109568 June 7th

    While working and finishing my college degree I found there was little time for the pleasure of sewing, so tote-bags became my go-to project. That's when I discovered Bag-E-Bottoms. They're just the right thing for properly shaping a bag and taking away that 'homemade' look.

  14. Vana63 June 7th

    Ive used and Luv Joans Bag Bottoms, Thanks for the chance to win more :-)

  15. User avater GypsyThread June 7th

    These look like really interesting inserts for bag bottoms. I'd love to play with Bag-E-Bottoms in place of some of my other inserts. They definitely stable!

  16. user-3183659 June 6th

    I would love to use these! I make handbags from repurposed materials. Because I currently have the stable bottom issue with my bags, I am not yet selling my bags on etsy. If these work out for me, I would surely buy more! ExceptionalBetsy@etsy.com

  17. User avater DianaLouise June 6th

    Bag-e Bottoms are the best! Thanks!

  18. sewgramms June 6th

    I've just started making a few bags. A rigid bottom would be a big help.

  19. user-234821 June 6th

    I love making bags. I've knitting bags with fabric strips and could really use bag bottoms for these bags!

  20. soexperimental June 6th

    Just what every girl in need of a firm bottom should have!

  21. User avater JennGM June 5th

    I wasn't aware of this project, but it's exactly what I need when I make bags. I want the flat bottoms and support!

  22. anniebananie June 5th

    What a great idea. I just started making bags and now my daughters are requesting more. Would love to win them!

  23. user-3332576 June 5th

    I am just learning about these. I'm starting to get the hang of making bags and purses and hope to try these soon.

  24. User avater Chefti June 5th

    These sound a great idea and would solve the problem of floppy bases on my bags.

  25. Mar Hein June 4th

    i would love to win this because they look like the perfect solution to finishing a bag. whenever i go shopping i take bag(s) along. i also like to make bags for others. :))

  26. User avater user-3385447 June 4th

    I design and make my own purses and bags and many need sturdy bottoms. I have not seen these Bag-E-Bottoms in my local sewing stores here in Nova Scotia. They would be the answer to my bags.

  27. Lisa3002 June 4th

    I make a lot of bags but have had a hard time finding the right sturdy bottom....would love to give these a try!

  28. User avater sailcocktail June 4th

    These look like perfect solutions to finishing the diaper bag I'm making for my first grandchild...

  29. User avater WillaMcNeill June 4th

    I don't get to sew nearly as much as I should like but when I do, I am generally making bogs of one sort or another. It would be fun to include these in the next projects.

  30. User avater melissah June 4th

    I love to make bags but struggle with the bottoms. I never heard of Bag-E-Bottoms before. They sound like exactly what I need!
