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. Iโ€™ll select one winner to receive:
– Mini Miranda Bag pattern

    I have been dying to try to make a bag and I love this one, would love for it to be my first. Thanks for the chance.

  3. Gale — March 21, 2013 @ 11:29 am

    I’ve made several “lazy” bags because I am a lazy girl. Right now I need a new one and this Mini Miranda looks just right. Love the cover of it featuring your friend’s daughter. I’d also love to try your new inerfacing. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  4. Maryann — March 21, 2013 @ 11:30 am

    I haven’t made any bags lately, but a bag was my first sewing project ever!

  5. Marvel — March 21, 2013 @ 11:30 am

    As all my fellow sewers have stated in their earlier posts … I too am desperately in need of a new bag (my zipper broke) and have not made one for a few years. Would love to try it and see if it meets my needs!

  6. Barbara Johnson — March 21, 2013 @ 11:37 am

    I have been making bags but would really love to make one of the designs and fabrics. One way or another, I am sure there are some in my future ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep up the good work

  7. Alicia Davis — March 21, 2013 @ 11:42 am

    Haven’t made a bag for me this year yet! I have made several for gifts mainly the Runaround which recipients have loved! I need to make Mini Miranda for myself!

  8. Nancy Johnson — March 21, 2013 @ 11:56 am

  17. Marie-Elena Baker — March 21, 2013 @ 3:42 pm

    I would love to make this bag out of “theatre ” theme fabric to use as my “COSTUMER” bag. IT could hold scripts, note book, Kindle and note book computer! Would be grand!

    thank you !!!

  18. Penny — March 21, 2013 @ 3:43 pm

    I love this bag so much! I haven’t made a bag in a few months, I’ve been busy starting my own accounting practice, and am now deep in the middle of tax season. I’m counting the days until April 15, and am mentally planning my sewing projects!

  19. Helen — March 21, 2013 @ 3:46 pm

    Love the internal detailing in this bag, great for all the paraphenalia we all tote around with us. Great idea and adds appeal to this bag. Well done.

  20. Susan Smith — March 21, 2013 @ 3:54 pm

    Pick me random generator I love this bag!

  21. Jeanne Robinson — March 21, 2013 @ 3:59 pm

    Made the Miranda but like the looks of the mini.
    Why carry so much when a little bag can do the
    same job! I’m for making a mini Miranda

  22. Carol Russell — March 21, 2013 @ 5:04 pm

    I like the bag.

  23. Deb Salisbury — March 21, 2013 @ 5:08 pm

    I love making bags and would really like to try your interfacing. That Mini Maranda looks so cute!

  24. Mystica — March 21, 2013 @ 5:56 pm

    I’d love to win! I have made totes about six of them but it was about two years ago!

  25. Elli Bokeno — March 21, 2013 @ 5:57 pm

    Already have picked wonderful fabrics from my stash. this would be the perfect bag for me.

  26. Elizabeth S — March 21, 2013 @ 5:57 pm

    I made two Miranda bags for Christmas….one for my sister & one for me! So easy to make & I have made at least 3 more of this pattern in different fabrics because it is just the right size for me. I get so many compliments on the Lazy Girl bags.

  27. Wendi — March 21, 2013 @ 6:09 pm

    I just made the “Oak Park” bag. I make all my bags ’cause I like the lightness of fabric vs. leather or vinyl. I’ve got two Miranda’s in my closet so I really need the mini….:)

  28. Beverly D — March 21, 2013 @ 6:11 pm

    Love the interior pockets! I like to construct mine out of mesh. So much easier to find stuff!

  29. Luann — March 21, 2013 @ 6:12 pm

    This is a really cute tote. Love the colors that were used and the inside is great!

  30. Debbie Karimullah — March 21, 2013 @ 10:14 pm

    I haven’t made a bag in a couple of months but it’s high on my list once I finish cleaning up my sewing room.

  31. Janet — March 21, 2013 @ 11:22 pm

    Nice size for the tote and love the colors too.

  32. Jean B — March 22, 2013 @ 11:21 am

    Love this bag. In process of making three bags right now.

  33. Mary D — March 22, 2013 @ 12:40 pm

    I have quite a few of your patterns – love them! – but have not made a bag in awhile! This bag seems to be just the right size for every day. I am anxious to try your interfacing. Thanks for your great blog, your wonderful patterns, and the chance to win!

  34. Marie Bisnett — March 22, 2013 @ 2:51 pm

    Love your Margo bag! I made one for me and my 91 year old mother loved it! I made one for her too. This tote looks just right for outlet shopping! I’m short, but this tote looks like it will “fit” me just fine. Would like to try your interfacing too.

  35. Dusty — March 22, 2013 @ 2:55 pm

    I am making 30 easter bag/baskets now for children in Guatemala in a program called Happy Tummies. They are malnourished and seriously underpriveledged. I would love this pattern. I have a sewing ministry to teach women in Guatemala how to sew to earn money to feed their families.

  36. Jane — March 22, 2013 @ 6:48 pm

    Yes, I just finished a drawstring bag to carry my knitting!

  37. Shar — March 23, 2013 @ 11:07 am

    Bag-making has become my ‘Thing” since going back to school (at 50-something) to finish my degree. The projects are small enough to be fairly quick and not take too much of my study time, but allow for my creative bug to run free. Also, my classmates are oh-so-impressed with all the bags!

  38. Karen Schultz — March 23, 2013 @ 6:56 pm

    Yes I have made bag(s) lately and enjoy your patterns very much! Hope to win this one! Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. carol c — March 24, 2013 @ 2:24 pm

    I think your alls purses are the best, wish I could own them all, they make any day rally bright and creative. I would really like this one. I like small or mini with lots of pockets

  40. Susan S — March 25, 2013 @ 9:51 am

    I’ve made bags in the past and have one in process now. I have used a couple of Lazy Girl patterns and a few others. Love your patterns, the variety is great! It’s all about the fabric for me… and using a pattern multiple times with changes to vary the results. Thanks for making such nice patterns.

  41. MaeveBe — March 25, 2013 @ 4:41 pm

    recently i made a simple wallet just to keep some cards in. I would love a bag like this one ๐Ÿ™‚

  42. Stacy Tomlin — March 26, 2013 @ 4:52 am

    I’ve recently picked up sewing as a hobby and it has quickly become my passion! I’ve made several projects but I have found making bags is my favorite! Thanks for this blog and for your giveaway!

  43. Else Koning — March 28, 2013 @ 12:02 pm

    Just love this cute bag! Have purchased a pattern a while ago from Sew Lazy in order to make a bag… but haven’t started it yet. Love this pattern though!
    Yes, I have made 2 bags lately, but am eager to start on the Sew Lazy one as soon as possible.

  44. glenda — March 30, 2013 @ 8:04 pm

    need to make one for an auction for my quilt guild

  45. Liz — March 31, 2013 @ 2:01 pm

    I have made a bag. I made one for an auction at our guilds quilt show next weekend. I loved it so much I had to make myself one also. I love bags.

  46. Dell M — April 1, 2013 @ 8:41 am

    This is a pattern that fills my needs. Winning this pattern would be fun, but I will buy it if I don;t win it.

  47. Faye Gould — April 1, 2013 @ 8:51 am

    I am a sewer for most of my 73 years and have found that I adore making bags. Your news blogs with pictures are the highlight of my mornings. Love the lazy bags. Thank you.

  48. Linddylou — April 1, 2013 @ 9:01 am

    Love to make bags. Lazy Girls are my favorite patterns, easy to read and understand.

  49. honnah — April 1, 2013 @ 9:42 am
