Giveaway: Mini Miranda Pattern and Sew Lazy Interfacing

Lazies, We just went back to print with our Mini Miranda Bag pattern (LGD124) and I’m having a giveaway to celebrate! Mini Mi is a nice sized tote, loaded with pockets and makes a perfect purse, too. Be sure to leave a comment after this blog post to enter our giveaway for Mini Miranda pattern and Sew Lazy supplies.

Bag Posture and Construction
Mini Miranda stands up straight and tall with our Sew Lazy Interfacings. Back in September we featured Mini Mi and walked through where and how to use our interfacings for this design. Be sure to catch that blog post here for a quick overview of the construction and materials.

Bag Interior
Here’s a peek inside Mini Miranda. She’s loaded with pockets to keep you organized. A fabric sleeve conceals our Bag-E-Bottom size F bag support, completing the interior with a beautiful finish for the bottom of the bag.

Who’s That Girl
Our beautiful cover model is Jessie Skoglund, daughter of my dear Lazy friend Karen. I’ve mentioned Karen in my blogs from time to time. You might remember she’s the one I feared would steal my fabric flower in a recent blog post. This is one of the outtakes from our photo shoot in my side yard.

Pattern Cover
Here’s the new Mini Miranda cover with Jessie. This is the first time we’ve shown a person on a pattern cover. I love the updated fresh look and design. Click image of pattern back to enlarge.

Mini Mi’s Arrival
It’s always exciting when a product arrives at Lazy Girl. Here’s a whole palette of Jessie and Mini Miranda. Patterns then get bagged, bundled in dozens for shipping, and find their place amongst the rest of the Girls while they wait to go out to customers.

The giveaway includes both Stiff Stuff and Dreamy Fusible Fleece so you can choose which one to use for the batting in this project. I’ll select one winner to receive:
– Mini Miranda Bag pattern
– Bag-E-Bottom size F
– 2/3 yd Dreamy Fusible Fleece
– 1 1/2 yd Face-It Firm fusible med/heavy interfacing
– 1 yd Stiff Stuff Firm sew-in interfacing

    I haven’t made a bag lately, but I’m in need of a new one. Mine current bag is falling apart! The Mini Miranda looks like the perfect size! Thanks for the chance to win!

  2. Vicki L in MN — March 18, 2013 @ 10:44 am

    I love the looks of this bag. Lots of pockets will help me (try to) stay organized. Lord knows, I need the help. =D

    It’s been a year since I have made a bag and I’m thinking it’s about time for a new one!

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  3. Pauline — March 18, 2013 @ 10:46 am

    I love making bags and would love to use the new interfacing you have.

  4. Pat Kelley — March 18, 2013 @ 10:50 am

    It’s been more than a year since I made a bag. Would love to win this package. I love all those pockets.

  5. Maggie — March 18, 2013 @ 10:50 am

    Love making Lazy Girl bags…. keep up the good work 🙂

  6. Debby Brown — March 18, 2013 @ 10:50 am

    Oh, love the regular Miranda! Would LOVE the Mini – and the interfacing. Thanks for holding this giveaway!

  7. Kathy Stoessner — March 18, 2013 @ 10:51 am

    I just watched you on Kaye Woods and I really want to get started on your line of patterns. This bag would be a great start.


  8. Susan Krahn — March 18, 2013 @ 10:53 am

    I love making bags. They are smaller projects than making a quilt.

  9. Carol — March 18, 2013 @ 10:53 am

    Been wanting to make this bag for a long time. I need to get busy to have a greaty spring bag.

  10. Judi — March 18, 2013 @ 10:53 am

    I’ve made several of the Lazy Girl patterns but never a tote. I’d love to try the new stabilizers. None of the LQS in my area carry it.

  11. DebrafromMD — March 18, 2013 @ 10:53 am

    Haven’t made a bag recently, but I desperately need a new purse so it is on the to-do list.

  12. Pam — March 18, 2013 @ 10:57 am

    Lazy…that is me!! Although I can make a Wonder Wallet in my sleep after making them in bulk for every holiday and special occasion and gifting them to daughters, sister, nieces, friends and even a few have been added to swap packages sent to far away lands. Market bags have been my bag sewing focus of late as we transition from using store supplied plastic bags to re-usable cloth bags.

  13. Doris Roberts — March 18, 2013 @ 10:57 am

    This seems the perfect size & shape bag for my first bag…love it!

  14. Lesley Mize — March 18, 2013 @ 10:58 am

    Haven’t made a purse like this one lately, but have made a large tapestry bag. I would love to have your pattern to make a Miranda bag. Love to see all your bags…

  15. Janet — March 18, 2013 @ 10:59 am

    I haven’t made a bag in quite a while, but my daughter is expecting a daughter soon. I need to get busy sewing! Would love to make a bag for her!

  16. miss freddie — March 18, 2013 @ 10:59 am

    I been searching for a purse pattern, as I really need a new purse and I love to say I made it myself”. If I win I can say “I won from a Lazy Girl contest”

  17. Debbie Rhodes — March 18, 2013 @ 10:59 am

    I did just make a bag last month and got lots of comments… I always tell anyone that asks about making one to use your patterns your instructions are so good very easy to follow

  18. Carolyn — March 18, 2013 @ 10:59 am

    I have made several bags lately. I have two more I need to cut out and sew.

  19. Jami — March 18, 2013 @ 11:01 am

    It’s been over a year since I made a new bag for me…I’m so-o-o overdue! It’s really getting ratty!

  20. Linda Sorensen — March 18, 2013 @ 11:03 am

    I made a very simple bag but this one is far more stately! Love it.

  21. Susan — March 18, 2013 @ 11:03 am

    I haven’t made a bag lately, but the Mini Miranda would be fun to make. I love that the pockets are lower. Things won’t fall out.

  22. Beth Strand — March 18, 2013 @ 11:04 am

    I haven’t made a bag in way too long and it’s time! I’d love to jump back in with a mini-Miranda!

  23. Lynn Zukowski — March 18, 2013 @ 11:05 am

    Love the Mini Miranda bag- especially the strap across the top- to keep it closed- but quick enough to open for easy access.
    I just made two large totes for my girlfriend and her mother who were going on a Quilting Cruise. I made them from a sturdy fabric called shoe canvas. On the front I embroidered their name ,and embroidered the back with an Owl on one and a Cardinal on the other. (Their favourite birds). Added lots of pockets on the inside and out. For these totes I used two sets of handles: short ones to carry by hand, and a longer strap to wear over your shoulder. The recipients were very pleased and even sent me a picture of them wearing their totes in front of the cruise ship!

  24. Jeanette Reed — March 18, 2013 @ 11:05 am

    Love this bag. Can’t wait to get the pattern hopefully during our State of Maine Shop Hop in April. Love all you bag and tote patterns.
    Thank You

  25. Jo M in MN — March 18, 2013 @ 11:06 am

    I have not made a bag, but I bought some fabric just for that purpose. I have been looking for a good pattern for one! I like that this one stands up nicely and has lots of compartments.

    Thanks for doing the giveaway!

  26. Dona Keyton — March 18, 2013 @ 11:07 am

    I love the looks of this bag. When you order it, does it come with actual pattern sized?

  27. Deborah Adams — March 18, 2013 @ 11:07 am

    I love this bag! Haven’t made one lately but I love to sew.

  28. Wendy Somerville — March 18, 2013 @ 11:07 am

    I made your beautiful Candace Bag and increased the size for my son’s girlfriend and she just loves it!! She is going to University and takes it with her everyday to hold her ipad, cell phone, books and your name it. 😉 I was very pleased with how the pattern turned out.

    I would love to be entered into the draw for your Mini Miranda Bag. 😉

    Thank you so very much.

  29. Mary — March 18, 2013 @ 11:07 am

    Looks like a great bag to make with lots of pockets. Could really use a bag like this especially with summer coming:)

  30. jeanne pandoli — March 18, 2013 @ 11:08 am

    I have made the Margo bag, many Runaround bags and many, many Fanfare quilts. I love the patterns and love that the Fanfare quilt tutorial was on line

  31. Karen — March 18, 2013 @ 11:08 am

    Love the Mini Miranda, and I need a new Spring Mini Miranda! Love the fabric on the new cover. Have not used the Stiff Stuff or Dreamy Fusible Fleece yet. Thanks for the opportunity.

  32. Amy Jaracz — March 18, 2013 @ 11:09 am

    Last bag I made was around Christmas. I am in need of a new fun spring bag 🙂

  33. Lesley — March 18, 2013 @ 11:09 am

    I made a tote from The long thread blog. I used fusible fleece for the first time and I LOVED it.

  34. Marcy P. — March 18, 2013 @ 11:09 am

    I have made several bags lately and would love winning this! Thanks for designing it!!!

  35. Holly Deam — March 18, 2013 @ 11:09 am

    It is about time for me to make another Lazy Girl bag as a gift for a special friend. She loved the one I made her before……especially all the inside pockets!

  36. Karen Crosby — March 18, 2013 @ 11:09 am

    I do not drive, so stayed home in the country this winter, yet did not sew a bag, but a quilt. I’d love to make this bag and thank you for a chance to win!!! karen608 at yahoo dot com

  37. Agneta Ekholm — March 18, 2013 @ 11:09 am

    Well, my sewing has been quite low for a while, but last week I decided to try some machine embroidery, and wow, I did miss spending time in my sewing studio. So, now I’m taking up on lost time and sewing all day long. Maybe my next project will be a mini Mi, in fabrics celebrating spring!

  38. Alice — March 18, 2013 @ 11:10 am

    I was just thinking I need a new bag as the season is changing from winter to spring.
    Haven’t made a bag in a while.

  39. Sandi Fisher — March 18, 2013 @ 11:11 am

    I am so ready to make another bag. I like the smaller bags so this one is perfect for me!

  40. sharon daniels — March 18, 2013 @ 11:11 am

    Am taking a roadtrip to Tennessee this summer. This bag would be perfect. Never made a bag before.

  41. Carol Gregg — March 18, 2013 @ 11:13 am

    I’ve made your “Summer Tote” for myself and have had a ton of compliments on it. The pattern was so easy to follow, had no trouble at all understanding the instructions!! I’d love the chance to try your new interfacings, as I want to make another tote and a new purse! Thanks for giving us a chance to win!

  42. carole thorpe — March 18, 2013 @ 11:14 am

    Yes I made a bag for my guild’s brown bag trade.

  43. Marla — March 18, 2013 @ 11:14 am

    Love this bag, the inside pockets are wonderful. I have material picked out for a new bag just haven’t decided which one to make yet.

  44. Penny B — March 18, 2013 @ 11:15 am

    Hi Joan, have missed your chat online, so was sure that you were busy with some new project. Now we know it is “Mini Mi” hope it is as big a success as your past endeavors. I look forward to using the new interfacings soon.

  45. Sheila Perl — March 18, 2013 @ 11:15 am

    I really like the new artwork and lovely model on your pattern! It is very convenient having a “live” model to compare the size of the bag to 🙂
    I made a pencil case, but not a purse!!

  46. Deb — March 18, 2013 @ 11:15 am

    I so need a new bag/purse … looking for a small one

  47. Denise Fitt — March 18, 2013 @ 11:15 am

    Love the Lazy Girl designs. Have the book rulers, some patterns and all my family have a wonder Wallet. A good Christmas gift for Grandchildren….just add some dollars and it is a super gift.

  48. Judy Klep — March 18, 2013 @ 11:17 am

    Love your patterns and this one looks like fun. I make lots of bags and include many accessories along with the bags I make. These include matching wallets, makeup bags, calendar covers, key fobs, etc. I’m known as the bag lady around here. Keep up the great work.

  49. Lise — March 18, 2013 @ 11:17 am

    oh my this is so sweet… would love my name to be entered in the draw for the Mini Mi

  50. donna kimbrough — March 18, 2013 @ 11:17 am

    I would love to win this…have been wanting to try a purse/tote but have not found a pattern that looked worth trying. This one sure fits the bill!!!!!! Lovely!
