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 LOVE your patterns and have made several of the bags both for myself, family & friends. I haven’t made this one but it looks like the perfect bag for myself and a friend who has a birthday soon!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I have made a new bag recently and everyone who sees it just loves it!!! I made it with a Herringbone pattern and then top stitched it with a variegated thread to match with decorative stitches. It did come out very nice!

  3. Kathy Gehring — March 18, 2013 @ 11:41 am

    I’m making a purse for myself to match a gym bag that I made last week. Mini Mi looks great and very interesting. I’d love to try it!

  4. Terry Smithey — March 18, 2013 @ 11:41 am

    This is so cute. What a great spring bag to have.

    No, I have not made a bag lately and I definitely need to. Love the Mini Miranda, thanks for the chance!

  7. Linda Wiemerslage — March 18, 2013 @ 11:43 am

    I made a bag to use for winter and was just pulling fabric out to make one for spring. This would be perfect!

  8. Linda Davis — March 18, 2013 @ 11:43 am

    I haven’t made a bag in a while. I’ve been making small wristets out of old neckties. I’ve made a few of the larger mirandas. My sister told me last nigh how much she loves hers.

  9. Deb Frey — March 18, 2013 @ 11:44 am

    I love this pattern, and love the fabrics chosen. I make alot of my bags and for special friends.

  10. teresa soileau — March 18, 2013 @ 11:45 am

  11. Melissa — March 18, 2013 @ 11:46 am

    Oh my – just what I have been looking for! A mini bag to go along for short jaunts and excursions… Okay, truth be known, a new bag is always a treat! I found some new fabric the other day…had to buy it…and now I know why! It will be perfect for this beautiful bag ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Deanna — March 18, 2013 @ 11:46 am

    I am so anxious to get into my craft room and get some sewing done. I really thought the winter would lend itself to some down time but somehow Spring is almost here and the clock just keeps ticking. I need something to get me excited and motivated to sew… The Mini Mi looks like the perfect project.
    I love your blog and always look forward to seeing what the Lazy Girls are up to:)

  13. ann — March 18, 2013 @ 11:46 am

    i have never made a bag yet, but this looks like it would be great way to start. Since I have neck issues I cannot carry large bags. this looks like a great size and it looks so refreshing and trendy. it also looks like a perfect bag for a gift.

  14. Janet — March 18, 2013 @ 11:46 am

    This looks like a fun bag to try – especially for spring!

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

    Making sever Chelsea bags for myself, sister and nieces to use and enjoy. Would love this mini Miranda as a reward for making so many for others to enjoy…

  16. Lynn — March 18, 2013 @ 11:47 am

    I’ve made a few grocery totes but it’s time to make a new bag! This pattern is terrific!

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

    I would love a new bag. I am trying to practice making them.

  18. Karol — March 18, 2013 @ 11:50 am

    No, I haven’t made a bag lately…..and I really need a new one.

    I have been making donations quilts. Sewing a new bag would be a nice break.

  19. Mary Mag — March 18, 2013 @ 11:51 am

    It’s been about a year since I’ve made a bag. I have some upholstery fabric samples I’ve been staring at that I want to create a bag with. Time to get that started! Love the Mini Miranda Bag pattern.

  20. Jackie Konder — March 18, 2013 @ 11:51 am

    Love all your patterns, so easy to follow. Am anxious to try your new interfacing. Your fabric choices are beautiful.My daughter requests a bag for every season!! Guess it is time for some new spring and summer bags.

  21. Elana — March 18, 2013 @ 11:51 am

    I keep buying material for making bags but have such a busy schedule I never get to making any. I must and will take time next month.

  22. Zina — March 18, 2013 @ 11:54 am

    What a wonderful giveaway! No, I haven’t made a bag lately, but that’s only because I am recovering from rotator cuff surgery. It’s been 6 weeks, and I am itching to get back to my machine! I could really use a nice, pretty bag for Spring.

  23. Diane — March 18, 2013 @ 11:54 am

    I have been needing to make a new bag but have not found one…this looks like the perfect fit!! Looks like a great bag.

  24. Mary — March 18, 2013 @ 11:57 am

    Winter brought my sewing creativity to a standstill. This bag project is just what I need to get started again. I have tried another of your pattern and the instructions are easy to understand!

  25. Connie — March 18, 2013 @ 11:57 am

    I love making bags! Thank you for this opportunity to get the Mini Miranda pattern!

  26. Sarah — March 18, 2013 @ 11:57 am

    I haven’t made any bags in a few months, but the last ones were pencil cases (to tackle my fear of zippers!). Last summer I made over a dozen tote bags, and I’m taking a two session bag class in April.

  27. Bonnijean M — March 18, 2013 @ 11:57 am

    I need a new bag, but haven’t had the opportunity to make one yet. I would love to win this. I think I would sew several.

  28. Janet Wilson — March 18, 2013 @ 11:58 am

    Have to save I love all your bags,, and bottoms…
    I started with your fabulous lazy ruler after seeing you on tv with it!
    keep up the great ideas….

  29. Bonnie Panattoni — March 18, 2013 @ 11:58 am

    A mini-Miranda, this looks like a great tote bag for keeping supplies on quilting get-togethers. You always have such fabulous fabrics too. Looking forward to the pattern.

  30. kate — March 18, 2013 @ 11:59 am

    Love everything about this bag. So wanting to try your interfacing…..

  31. Debbie — March 18, 2013 @ 12:00 pm

    I am in the process of making a bag for my mom to use on a cruise.
    I would love to make this bag for myself.

  32. Martha-Ann Wilkie — March 18, 2013 @ 12:00 pm

    The last bag that I have made was the week before Valentine’s Day. My 15 year old brother asked me to teach him how to make a purse (tote styled bag) for his girlfriend for V.Day. I made my own easy-to-do pattern and went step by step with him on how to make a purse/bag. He did AWESOME! In fact she takes it to school all the time and showed it off to all her girl friends, whom may I add are jealous becuase their boyfriends didn’t make them one! It’s a reversible, skull tote (what can I say, it’s coming from a teenaged boy). One side is black with white skulls and the other is white with black skulls. One of the best times we spent together….Now I’m trying to get him to want to make oven mitts or a table cloth for mom for mother’s day… he just laughed at me…

  33. Tonya — March 18, 2013 @ 12:00 pm

    I have been contemplating making another bag lately….my other one has handles that need replaced. Yes! I use it that much. I just can’t decide which pattern to use this time.

  34. jackie duncan — March 18, 2013 @ 12:01 pm

    Haven`t had the time to sew lately, but one of your bags is next on my too do list.

  35. Kim — March 18, 2013 @ 12:02 pm

    I haven’t made a bag in a little while, but I need to make some gifts. This would be perfect if I won!!!

  36. Julie Schievelbein — March 18, 2013 @ 12:03 pm

    So pretty!! I made a bag for a cruise last August, but none lately. Would be a lovely new spring addition!

  37. Kathy Bumb — March 18, 2013 @ 12:03 pm

    I have made several purses by several different designers in the past six month. I love making purses. After sewing clothes for so many years, this is a different and exciting challenge. Love this new design. Thank you for the giveaway!!!!

  38. Maureen — March 18, 2013 @ 12:04 pm

    I have every Lazy Girl pattern, it is the only pattern for me. In fact I do sample of your patterns for a local quilt store. Faithful fan. Maureen in BC

  39. Charlotte Key — March 18, 2013 @ 12:04 pm

    I love your pattern instructions because they are so easy to follow and I find myself saying “why didn’t I think of that” when I realize how easy they go together with your techniques. I would love you win your stabilizer because I haven’t had a chance to try it yet.

  40. Vicky Gjerde — March 18, 2013 @ 12:06 pm

    I love all your bags!! I have an actual hall tree coat rack just full of the bags I have made. It’s readily available for whatever mood strikes my fancy!

    Keep desining! I’ll keep a buying.

  41. Kathy in OR — March 18, 2013 @ 12:06 pm

    No, I have never made a bag BUT this one actually seems do-able to me. Thanks for the chance to win.

  42. Connie Jordan — March 18, 2013 @ 12:06 pm

    Would love to be the winner of the Mini Miranda pattern-my winter purse is looking pretty tired about now. Bring on the Spring colors and let’s have fun!!

  43. Patty Martin — March 18, 2013 @ 12:09 pm

    That bag looks perfect…I NEED that pattern! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  50. Nancy Jett — March 18, 2013 @ 12:14 pm

    My daughter and I just made 16 of your one-hour totes in bright prints to give to friends who helped us through a sad time. We are ready to move up to the next level. This bag looks like one we would love to make. Interfacing has been a challenge we haven’t tried.
