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

    It’s a cold rainy day here, and I was just thinking about making a new bag for Easter when the Lazy Girl post came through. What a great bag! I’ve made several Claires for myself and friends. The Miranda pattern is laying on my work table amidst several fabrics. I can’t decide…guess that means I’ll need to make multiple bags! Maybe the Mini Me will be among those. Keep up the good work! I love your styles and the easy directions.

  2. DeLynn — March 18, 2013 @ 11:19 am

    The pattern photo is extremely eye catching and beautiful. I like that I can tell exactly how big the bag is and the fabric choice makes me ready to sew. I need that bag! Great job.

  3. Gill — March 18, 2013 @ 11:19 am

    Great giveaway! count me in please!
    The last bag I made was for my daughter!

  4. Charlie DiSante — March 18, 2013 @ 11:19 am

    To answer your question; yes, I have made several bags lately with light aquas and greens, kind of springy. Your patterns have clear instructions, thanks for all the hard work you put in them.

  5. judy — March 18, 2013 @ 11:19 am

    love the look of this bag. sign me up to win it !!!

  6. Sandra — March 18, 2013 @ 11:20 am

    This bag is adorable and looks very functional. Love the pockets on the inside!

  7. Shirley — March 18, 2013 @ 11:20 am

    The last bag I made was the Miranda bag. I love that it has a pocket for my e-reader.
    I also made the purse insert. Both were super easy to make and I love them. Thank you for making such cute and easy patterns!! : ) The mini Miranda is on my list of bags to make…

  8. Cindy — March 18, 2013 @ 11:20 am

    I have made a number of your bags – I love ’em all!!

  9. Sharon — March 18, 2013 @ 11:20 am

    MMmmmmm, Mini-Miranda looks like the bag for me. Pockets galore, sturdy bottom, firm sides. What more could a girl ask for in her most necessary companion? I’ve made several bags in the past year and the only ones that truly answer my needs are the ones made with your Face It Firm and Stiff Stuff Firm interfacings!

  10. Carol stockman — March 18, 2013 @ 11:21 am

    Haven’t made a hand bag, but I have been making trash bags for cars and children’s clothes. I love this style bag.

  11. Rosalyn — March 18, 2013 @ 11:21 am

    I have fabric ready to make a bag for a swap I’m in. I love making bags. Last bag I made was just a few months ago. Too long ago really. Thanks for the giveaway. Love your site and patterns.

  12. Diane Leikam — March 18, 2013 @ 11:22 am

    I haven’t made any bags lately because I have been making aprons! I love my Lazy patterns and would love to have Mini Miranda to add to my collection. This would be a great bag for my daughter, who is a teacher!

  13. Sue — March 18, 2013 @ 11:22 am

    I need to get motivated again. this is a great pattern. You can dress it up or make it plainer. Nice options


  14. June Prenger — March 18, 2013 @ 11:22 am

    Like the looks of this bag – just the right size!

  15. Connie — March 18, 2013 @ 11:23 am

    Yes, I love making bags and would love to make this one!

  16. Michelle — March 18, 2013 @ 11:23 am

    So cute

  17. Peggy Brown — March 18, 2013 @ 11:23 am

    Have only made knitted / felted bags. Would love to try and make a fabric one. 🙂

  18. Mary — March 18, 2013 @ 11:24 am

    I’ve not made any totes or bags of any kind.

  19. Cathie R — March 18, 2013 @ 11:24 am

    I love Lazy Girl Designs Bags and have all the ingredients for a new Claire bag sitting in my sewing area just waiting for me to have the time to get her done.

  20. Lynda — March 18, 2013 @ 11:24 am

    I haven’t made a bag lately because I haven’t found just the right pattern – until now. I like the looks and all the inside pockets. Also the size looks to be just right. I’m not a fan of really big bags, stuff falls to the bottom and it’s like a treasure hunt to locate the keys, etc.

  21. Linda Frye — March 18, 2013 @ 11:25 am

    I love Lazy Girl patterns. Haven’t tried the Mini Miranda. Thanks for the chance to win!

  22. Bernardine Shearouse — March 18, 2013 @ 11:25 am

    Love the look of this bag!!

  23. Julia — March 18, 2013 @ 11:25 am

    I haven’t made a bag in ages. Would love to try some of the new interfacing materials.

  24. Samantha — March 18, 2013 @ 11:26 am

    I haven’t made a bag lately, although I have a few on my wish list. Must finish Easter dresses first!

  25. Connie — March 18, 2013 @ 11:26 am

    Love your bags. The directions are always easy to understand and so much fun to make. Thank you for being our Lazy girl.

  26. Liz — March 18, 2013 @ 11:26 am

    I made a two totes last summer. One matches a baby quilt and was a gift, the other is for me. It is large enough that I can pack for a weekend. But I need bag that has more pockets for organization. Your patterns would be terrific.

  27. Christina — March 18, 2013 @ 11:26 am

    Love the bag pattern!

  28. Liz Nieman — March 18, 2013 @ 11:27 am

    Lazy Girl purse and bag patterns are my “go to” patterns for gifts, bridge prizes, and my personal use. Love them! Gave away 3 this past weekend for door prizes at a club roundtable meeting.

  29. Madeline — March 18, 2013 @ 11:28 am

    Hi, I am a new sewer and have made four simple totes so far. I am looking forward to increasing my skill level to the point where I can make this beautiful bag. But first, to figure out how to replace the needle I broke yesterday when I tried to sew through two layers of cotton twill (for the handles of the last bag). By the way, can anybody recommend a good book or website on the ins and outs of using a sewing machine (Pffaf Ambition).

    Thank you,
    Madeline in Victoria, B.C. Canada

  30. Jackie Dundon — March 18, 2013 @ 11:29 am

    I have made a lot of your bags, but not this one, would love to have the pattern.

  31. Patricia Conner — March 18, 2013 @ 11:29 am

    Love to make all your bags… don’t get to keep very many however. They seem to disappear right after a visit from my daughters- grandaughters or daughter-in-law. Wonder where they go! Love the Mini Miranda- Thanks for the patterns and chance to WIN.

  32. Sandra — March 18, 2013 @ 11:29 am

    I have been thinking about it but I’m in my early forties and my eyes are giving me fits. Still looking for a way to see well when I’m sewing … things either have to be really close or far away….any ideas for this? So want to get back to sewing!

  33. Renee O — March 18, 2013 @ 11:30 am

    I have made 5 Claire bags but am ready for something new. Love your patterns – easy to follow.

  34. Lesley — March 18, 2013 @ 11:31 am

    I have made the Miranda bag, but would love to make the mini one. I’m more of a smaller purse person. Love the colors of this one.

  35. Lois — March 18, 2013 @ 11:32 am

    I’m currently working on a Lunch Bag ! I love love love making bags 🙂 Thanks for the opportunity.

  36. Karen Richardson — March 18, 2013 @ 11:32 am

    I can never get my pockets to look right! Love your patterns and the fabric choices always inspire me to look outside the obvious choices!

  37. Dixie — March 18, 2013 @ 11:32 am

    I love your bags, I’m presenly making my third City Bag. This time without the handles and making the shoulder strap longer, to have it cross over my chest, to take with me when I shop.
    I’ve also told my sewing group about your web site. Keep up the great work.

  38. Mary M — March 18, 2013 @ 11:32 am

    Love making Bags but haven’t tried the new interfacing Stiff Stuff. Looking forward to this new product!

  39. Norma — March 18, 2013 @ 11:32 am

    I am making a bag today – the Runaraound Bag!

  40. Patti Clark — March 18, 2013 @ 11:33 am

    l have made a lot of purses and totes….love this purse and the inside pockets…..would love to make this one for myself!!!

  41. Brenda McNeil — March 18, 2013 @ 11:34 am

    I have made many bags for others. Last October I finally made one for myself to take on a trip. But the latest “bag” I made was a “Daddy diaperbag” for my son at Christmas. His 1st child was born just this Friday. They got to take Maya home today!

  42. jan Roloff — March 18, 2013 @ 11:35 am

    Your patterns are perfect for those of us who want quality and something that fits our personality (or the grandchildrens’ personal taste in color and pattern). My youngest granddaughter was inspired by one of your purse patterns and learned to sew!
    Thank you,

  43. Kari — March 18, 2013 @ 11:35 am

    What an amazing bag, I havent had the chance to make one of your bags yet and this looks like a great opportunity. I recently made a cute purse what a SASSY city girl print. Thanks for the opportunity to win one of your designs.

  44. Kathie — March 18, 2013 @ 11:36 am

    I’ve made a lot of the Lazy Girl bags and I’d like to add the Mini Miranda to my closet. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  45. I haven’t yet to complete a nice bag. I’ve just started on a cross the body side pouch to carry my iPad. I’m winging it on my own using new fabric and ‘leather’ accents from an old shoulder bag that had been destined for the charity box. I’m hoping it comes out pretty as well as functional!

    I would love to win your pattern and materials! Thanks for the chance at winning!

    The “Runaround Bag” was the first bag I made, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Love this bag!!

  47. Donna — March 18, 2013 @ 11:38 am

    LOVE LOVE the Lazy Girl bag designs! This mini Miranda will definitely be part of my “collection” of patterns! Best designs in the world! I have made several of their designs for gifts and have not been disappointed in any of them!

  48. Beverly meadows — March 18, 2013 @ 11:38 am

    I made a bag a couple months ago, but gave it to my MIL, so I need to make another for myself. I would love to win this giveaway!
