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.

    I made a bag for my daughters birthday in January. I used a pattern I found on the internet. It turned out great. But I really like the Town Purse pattern, I have made it several times.

  2. Patricia Hersl — March 19, 2013 @ 5:48 pm

    I love making bags even though some are quite the challenge. The latest was a set of totes that convert to a duffle for some high school friends coming for a visit. They loved them!

  3. Bonnie Barthelemy — March 19, 2013 @ 6:11 pm

    Looks like a really cute bag. I love Lazy Girl patterns. They are so easy to follow! Thanks

  4. Susan Paxton — March 19, 2013 @ 6:26 pm

    Wow What a great looking bag…Wish I had known about Bag-E-Bottom when I made bags for Christmas Gifts.. Would love to win this pattern!!

  5. Mary Carole — March 19, 2013 @ 6:31 pm

    I am past due for a new purse, Would love to give this a try! Thanks!

  6. Barbara G. — March 19, 2013 @ 6:32 pm

    I need a new spring bag and would love to make this bag and try out the new stabilizers. Lazy Girl patterns are well written and easy to follow. Hope I win!!!

  7. Barb B. — March 19, 2013 @ 6:41 pm

    I love making bags. Love your patterns too.

  8. DeAnne — March 19, 2013 @ 7:06 pm

    I just made a runabout bag! I love lazy girl patterns.

  9. Elaine — March 19, 2013 @ 7:31 pm

    Actually I am just about done with making one now. And it just happens to be yours. I am making Margo and have had a hard time finding of all things a zipper.

  10. Marlene Vossen — March 19, 2013 @ 7:43 pm

    I have made a purse and a tote bag. I love using the tote bag and the purse ended up not being as big as I needed but still was fun to make.

  11. Deann ZImmer — March 19, 2013 @ 8:27 pm

    I so love this new pattern. I haven’t made a purse because it scares me. But, I really do believe I could do this one. Even if I don’t get picked, I will probably order it to celebrate being a 10 year survivor of breast cancer. Given a 2% chance of surviving but I know I have beat cancer.

  12. Tonya — March 19, 2013 @ 8:32 pm

    Love this bag!!! Have to get the pattern. I love all of them!

  13. Jennifer — March 19, 2013 @ 8:38 pm

    Love th bag! I have not made one lately but need to because my Claire is just about worn out!

  14. Michele Reilly — March 19, 2013 @ 8:50 pm

    I love this! Wish I had one when I was travelling this past weekend. Will be purchasing soon.

  15. Susan K — March 19, 2013 @ 9:28 pm

    Last bag I made was in December, the Runaround, for my best friend. We were meeting her and her hubby for a casino weekend and the Runaround is perfect for casino floor where you want it attached to you and just holding essentials. Love LG patterns, own many. Mini Miranda is adorable and now that I’m retired, I don’t need as big a bag anymore. This would be perfect to join her older sister Miranda and the other girls in my collection. Nice choice of fabrics.

  16. Mary Aikins — March 19, 2013 @ 10:00 pm

    I have not made a bag yet, but just had a new baby girl 3 weeks ago (she makes 4 kiddos in all) and I need to make one for her. I am going to be making one for my 9 year old daughter too. I love your creations! ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Lori Morton — March 19, 2013 @ 10:01 pm

    Oooooh!!! LOVE the Mini-Miranda!!! Would love to make one (or a bunch!! lol) I made aTote years ago….have never made a nice Bag/Purse tho,

    Thanks for coooool drawing!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Angela Levell — March 19, 2013 @ 10:04 pm

    I have sewn several different purses, but have yet to try a Lazy Girl pattern. I would LOVE for the Mini Miranda to be my first!!

  19. Evelyn Thomas — March 19, 2013 @ 10:26 pm

    This bag looks fantastic. I recently made a bag that will hold my quilting notions. My friend is teaching me the fun of making a bag that fits your needs and is made with fabric you get to pick. I’m loving it! Thanks for sharing.

  20. Julie B — March 19, 2013 @ 10:51 pm

    I haven’t made a bag/purse in a quite awhile. I like the pattern cover with the person. I can visualize the size of the bag better. Thanks for the chance to win.

  21. Sue McArthur — March 19, 2013 @ 11:16 pm

    Love your patterns. Have made 5 Claire Handbags and have 2 more to make for May Birthdays. The perfect gift . Time for a new challenge ,Mini Miranda would be perfect.
    Aussie girls love your designs!

  22. Megan — March 20, 2013 @ 12:10 am

    I love big plans to make a new bag soon! A bag was one of my first sewing projects and it totally fell apart on the first day! ๐Ÿ™ This one will be better!


  23. Nancy D — March 20, 2013 @ 2:30 am

    The last bag I made was a back pack for my grand daughter. I love bags…all bags! All my on going projects have their own bags. I constantly am changing my purse. I have several patterns just waiting for the right fabric. Would love to add this pattern to my collection ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Kathy L — March 20, 2013 @ 7:56 am

    I’ve never made a bag but would’ve to try. Thanks for the chance to win.

  25. Char Snyder — March 20, 2013 @ 8:11 am

    I have made several bags in the past and am currently working on a Mondo Bag. Two years ago, I made 4 cupcake bags for my little grand-daughters for Easter and they loved them. I have not used Bag-E-Bottoms yet but I plan to. In the past, I used plastic mesh (the kind used to stitch on) with underwhelming results. Love your blog!

  26. Diane — March 20, 2013 @ 8:22 am

    A person can never have too many bags. Thanks for sharing.

  27. Cindy Norton — March 20, 2013 @ 8:39 am

    I am back into the creative mood. Just finished a Runaround bag for spring and ready to start another. The Mini Miranda would be a nice next project. Have made lots of your bags and love them all.

  28. Barbara Akerley — March 20, 2013 @ 8:50 am

    I have made many bags by Lazy Girl. I love your patterns and always look for new ones! Thank you for making such great patterns!!

  29. Phyllis Stephenson — March 20, 2013 @ 9:47 am

    I am ready to finish a bag now. My daughter needs a new tote. will this be the one?

  31. Shannon — March 20, 2013 @ 9:57 am

    I just made a fantastic bag from some leftover Ikea fabric that turned out beautifully! No pattern, just sort of (lazily) thrown together…

  32. Jen — March 20, 2013 @ 10:40 am

    I could use another tote in my collection! Love the Lazy Girl patterns. Thanks for the chance to win!

  33. Julie — March 20, 2013 @ 1:05 pm

    I have learned to sew from You Tube. My skills are questionable at best, but I keep on trying and learning. My latest attempt was a little Dr. Seuss bag that I got a tutorial from online. I even managed the tote bottom and the seams lined up. I am so excited about sewing. I am now following you and thanks.

  34. Sallie — March 20, 2013 @ 2:18 pm

    I haven’t made a bag, but this one looks great! Love the inside pockets. Thanks for the giveaway!

  35. vickie blose — March 20, 2013 @ 2:37 pm

  36. Linda — March 20, 2013 @ 3:45 pm

  40. verona — March 20, 2013 @ 7:30 pm

    I just love all the projects you make and you are so informative on all the things you do. I made 15 bages like a brand name cant name for our Church Bazzar and sold all .aolt of my freinds got one for their Birthdays and people have asked for more, Fun to do and gives me the excuse to go shopping for more material since it all changes all the time so many different patterns to chose from. also I can over buy because I cant make up my mind. GOOD EXCUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  41. Gale W. — March 20, 2013 @ 7:33 pm

    Oh, I love this bag – gorgeous! Yes, I make bags and right now I am working on a beautiful spring tote. Tomorrow she should be done. So excited about this giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win.

  42. Kathy A — March 20, 2013 @ 7:51 pm

  44. Debbie P — March 21, 2013 @ 8:54 am

    Oh I would LOVE to win this giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity!

  46. Tammy M — March 21, 2013 @ 10:54 am

    I have made a few bags, one of which is a black-&-white plaid bag for a friend. I’ve got a Lazie purse I made about 3 years ago. I loved it so much I’ve had to store it until I can get around to fixing it back up. I think I’d like to retire that black-white-&-red baby and make one with some browns, greens, and purples. I hope I get the chance with this one!

  47. Kelly Preciado — March 21, 2013 @ 10:58 am

    Maggie bags!
