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

  5. Bonnie Johnson — March 18, 2013 @ 12:17 pm

    I have made the Gracie and quite a few of the Margo Bags. I like them both and get lots of compliments when I carry them.

  6. Marilyn Bunker — March 18, 2013 @ 12:17 pm

    Wow! Super cute. Look forward to making this bag!!!

  7. Kate Los — March 18, 2013 @ 12:18 pm

    I have not made a bag in a couple of years! I like the roominess of thsi smaller version, as well as the “creamsicle” colors on the fabric!

  8. Virginia — March 18, 2013 @ 12:20 pm

    I made this bag one time with batting but would love to try it with the new interfacing. thank you Joan for offering it to us. I have the new Janome12,000 I know she would love to try it also.

  9. Norma — March 18, 2013 @ 12:20 pm

    Hi and thanks for the giveaway. Yes I’ve sewn bags lately. I’m addicted to it and sell in my etsy shop. This bag is very cute and has great features.

  10. Nita — March 18, 2013 @ 12:20 pm

    I retired from higher education last summer, and have enjoyed sewing again! Would love to win the free pattern!

  11. Cathy — March 18, 2013 @ 12:22 pm

    Thanks. I have made some totes, and I do have one of your bag patterns to be made, but this would be the perfect size to begin with. I think I would enjoy this one.

  12. Shirley — March 18, 2013 @ 12:22 pm

    Love your patterns! I Have used them for about 3 years and it has been fun to see you and them change format as technology allows. Keep up coming up with new things. Altho I don’t think you can improve on any of the current patterns..

  13. Cheryl — March 18, 2013 @ 12:23 pm

    Haven’t completed a bag, but I’m in the process of cutting one out. Love your bags, wanting to make many for family & friends.

  14. Sharon — March 18, 2013 @ 12:25 pm

    This is one bag I love. Have made a lot of them as gifts. Plus I love your interfacing.

  15. Jeannine — March 18, 2013 @ 12:25 pm

    Love making totes and would love to win this one, I have the perfect fabric to use!

  16. MaryLou Wahl — March 18, 2013 @ 12:25 pm

    Love the new Mini Miranda-have enjoyed making other Lazy girl patterns. Love all the inside pockets-just perfect!

  17. Mary Lou — March 18, 2013 @ 12:28 pm

    I love the way the pockets are done inside. I love pockets!

  18. Roberta — March 18, 2013 @ 12:29 pm

    This has to be my most favorite lazy girl pattern – It is so versatile pattern – and i love to embellish the bag – i have made this one several times and i will make this one over and over and it never looks the same

  19. Rachel Hober — March 18, 2013 @ 12:29 pm

  20. Alice A. — March 18, 2013 @ 12:29 pm

    I haven’t made a bag for a while and would love to make this one. It’s the perfect size to hold everything you need for day shopping trips! I would love to win the pattern!

  21. Beth — March 18, 2013 @ 12:30 pm

    I just purchased the Whimsy Bag pattern, but have yet to find the perfect fabric. Love your patterns!

  22. Gertrude Ezell — March 18, 2013 @ 12:33 pm

    I have not made a bag recently, but desperately need too – need to get out of the winter funk and a new spring bag would be perfect!
    Thank you for the giveaway opportunity!!

    (New packaging looks great too!)

  23. Jodi — March 18, 2013 @ 12:34 pm

    I made a summer tote but in Fall Colors and use it quite often. I recently purchased the Miranda and Runaway bag and I have some fabric but just cannot decide which of the 2 bags to make. 🙂 Love all your designs.

  24. Sandy Strohacker — March 18, 2013 @ 12:35 pm

    Haven’t made a bag in a year or so, but I would love to try this one. It looks so roomy.

  25. Shelby — March 18, 2013 @ 12:36 pm

    I’m pretty lazy but that bag inspires me. Thank you for a chance to win the pattern

  26. Diana Haas — March 18, 2013 @ 12:37 pm

    I’ve made 2 Margo bags and 3 Maggies recently. Thank you.

  27. Carol Stevenson — March 18, 2013 @ 12:37 pm

    Would love to make the Miranda bag. I haven’t made a bag since August 2012 when I started a new job. I’ve been looking at my patterns and thinking about a new one.

  28. Sue Baker — March 18, 2013 @ 12:38 pm

    I’m needing a new purse & new inspiration. The Miranda might do it. Haven’t made a pursefor some time. SueB

  29. Gail Roemer — March 18, 2013 @ 12:38 pm

    Sew perfect. I have made a few bags lately, one of which was the Lazy Girl Towne Purse, one for myself and one for my Mom, who would now like one for “spring”. I also just bought “Candice” and hope to start that soon. Mini Mi looks like another GREAT bag. G

  30. Maree — March 18, 2013 @ 12:39 pm

    No, I haven’t made a bag in a really long, long time. Thanks a bunch for the chance to win! ?

  31. Norma Jean McDarmont — March 18, 2013 @ 12:40 pm

    At the present time, I am helping to set up my sister-in-law’s new sewing room. We have really enjoyed the time together discovering that our tastes are really close. She is as interested in making bags as I am so I introduced her to Lazy Girls Handbag patterns and supplies. We especially like the Miranda. I believe it will be the first we tackle. Thanks so much for all your tips and instructions.

  32. Victoria — March 18, 2013 @ 12:41 pm

    I love to make new bags, would have a different one for every day of the year if I could! P.S. My b-day is 3/22 so it would make a perfect present!!

  33. Beverly Adams — March 18, 2013 @ 12:41 pm

    I love a person on your cover — helps me see the relative size of the bag!
    Love the color combos and all the pockets.
    Yesterday my music major daughter asked for different totes for each of her “music” classes to help her go from class to class quickly. She plays pipe organ, piano, harp, acustic(sp) guitar and sings. Each subject has a different set of music books and lesson materials. We decided rather than carrying everything — heavy! — to make separate totes so all she had to do was grab the one she needed. I have my work cut out for me and you’ve inspired me to add lots of pockets!
    Keep giving us more Lazy pretties!

  34. Anne — March 18, 2013 @ 12:42 pm

    What a lovely giveaway! There will be one happy winner come Friday. 🙂

  35. Alisha Schultze — March 18, 2013 @ 12:42 pm

    I haven’t made a bag in a while. I will be once we move into our new home. I have a lot of UFO’s. LOL

  36. jerry church — March 18, 2013 @ 12:43 pm

    Looks like a great bag to teach my beginning sewing friend. I’d love to have this pattern to share techniques with her.

  37. Barbara Karklins — March 18, 2013 @ 12:44 pm

  46. Susan Galbreath — March 18, 2013 @ 1:01 pm

  49. Helen Bressler — March 18, 2013 @ 1:12 pm

    I haven’t made a bag yet but I’m looking forward to putting your new interfacings to the test. I’m hoping they are exactly what I am looking for!
    Thanks for this give-away offer and the generosity with information!
