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

    Would a clever comment help? I really want a chance to play with the new interfacings and have a smaller shoulder has sent an urgent request for the smaller bag part. Sew, throw my big bag, uh, hat in the mix. Thanx for the opportunity to participate.

    I recently made a drawstring bag for my daughter and would love to make this great bag for myself 🙂 Thanks for the sweet giveaway….love seeing a real person on the pattern so I can see what size the bag is.

  3. Nora — March 18, 2013 @ 1:20 pm

    This looks like a great bag – just what you’d expect from Lazy Girl Designs!!!!

  4. Maureen Scott — March 18, 2013 @ 1:20 pm

    I’ve been making wallets, not bags but I feel the need for a new bag coming on! The mini looks perfect!

  5. Maeve — March 18, 2013 @ 1:20 pm

    I haven’t made a purse lately, but would love to make this one. I like all those pockets inside and the overall design of the purse. Very functional while being stylish too. Would be very happy to win this giveaway, as I have plenty of fabrics that would make up nicely with this pattern. Thank you!

  6. Arlene — March 18, 2013 @ 1:21 pm

    Love the Miranda & use it all the time but I would really like to make the mini Miranda it look like a wonderful bag. Love your patterns.

  7. Carol Betts — March 18, 2013 @ 1:22 pm

    I have not made a bag since last spring; I think it’s time for a new one.

  8. Mary Maxwell — March 18, 2013 @ 1:24 pm

    I made bags for two of my four daughters for Christmas this past year. Last night my 7 year old was browsing my sewing magazines and found some fabrics she just loved. She hinted that she needed a new purse. This would be perfect for her to carry her Sunday school supplies back and forth.

  9. Lynn S. — March 18, 2013 @ 1:24 pm

    I so desperately need to do something LAZY!!! I’m right in the middle of making a bag in a gray ostrich vinyl and it is very complicated! I really need a break to sew something light, fun, and beautiful like the Mini Miranda bag! And I just bought a gorgeous piece of Caribbean blue cotton with dragon flies on it…..oh the possibilities! Pick me!! Pick me!! LOL!!!

  10. Ann Neiber — March 18, 2013 @ 1:26 pm

  11. Marilyn R Buffum — March 18, 2013 @ 1:27 pm

  12. ERNA — March 18, 2013 @ 1:28 pm

    Justo tengo que hacer un bolso a mi sobrina para la escuela, y este me parece el adecuado.

  13. Sherrie — March 18, 2013 @ 1:28 pm

    I love the size of this bag. Perfect for all my stuff. Your patterns are great!

  14. Sue in Texas — March 18, 2013 @ 1:28 pm

    My daughter needs a new Miranda and this Mini looks like just her size. Love the bags and love to make them. 🙂

  15. laurie Jacobs — March 18, 2013 @ 1:29 pm

    The last bag I made was a TAMMY TADD design. Great, large bag! I made threee of them for my daughters and they use them as an overnight bag.

  16. Mary Mather — March 18, 2013 @ 1:29 pm

    I have made bags for many other people but now it’s time to make one for myself. This bag would be awesome!

  17. Sheryle Augustine — March 18, 2013 @ 1:34 pm

    I love Lazy Girl patterns. I just got fabric for a summer tote and the mini Miranda would be perfect. I just finished a tote for a friend of mine. Thanks for the chance to win.

  18. Peggy — March 18, 2013 @ 1:35 pm

    The mini Miranda looks the perfect size purse. I really like seeing the bag with pretty gal. Easier to judge the size of bag or purse.

  19. Rita Stone — March 18, 2013 @ 1:36 pm

    Love, love, love it and with spring coming it is definitelt time for a new bag or two or three.

  20. Pam Bartnett — March 18, 2013 @ 1:37 pm

    I haven’t made a purse since the holidays, but it’s about time! I love Lazy Girl patterns, but haven’t tried the interfacing and batting yet. Excited to do so!

  21. Sherry — March 18, 2013 @ 1:41 pm

    I have not made a bag lately but this looks like a great bag to make just for me.

  22. CarolH — March 18, 2013 @ 1:43 pm

    Just finished a cosmetic bag sized clutch that uses a tape measure for opening/closing. I would love to make a mini Miranda to match.

    Thanks for offering the give-away.

  23. Mary Ellen Coumerilh — March 18, 2013 @ 1:49 pm

    This is a REALLY great bag!!! Actually, I am on the way out the door to buy fabric for a messenger bag for my granddaughter’s birthday in 2 weeks. :o)

  24. Diane Q. — March 18, 2013 @ 1:52 pm

    I love the mini Miranda bag and would love to try the interfacing. I have made 20+ Margo bags in 3 sizes for myself and gifts, it’s all I carry!

  25. Carole Tutko — March 18, 2013 @ 1:53 pm

    Made a new bag recently but wished I had this Miranda bag pattern at the time , much bigger than the bag I made . But it’s all good , gave it to one of my granddaughters

  26. Lorrie Hubin — March 18, 2013 @ 1:53 pm

    I’ve made several RunAround Bags which really boosted my sewing self esteem (after lots of garment sewing disappointments). My sisters have birthdays coming up, and I think this tote pattern would make lovely gifts. Your instructions are so crystal clear! Thank you.

  27. carol in indiana — March 18, 2013 @ 1:53 pm

    The last bag I made was an origami bag, a drawstring, gift for a friend. A lot of my GFs are crafty people, and I make them for sewing notions — or beading tools/projects — or tatting shuttles and tools, etc. You get the idea!!!

    Your bag is so lovely. A lot of thought went into the pattern – looks so well constructed – a pocket and place for EVERYTHING!!!


  28. Pam Hawkins — March 18, 2013 @ 1:58 pm

    That’s too cute and just in time to get made for spring use. I love the color shown too.

  29. Rose Scarlet — March 18, 2013 @ 2:00 pm

    I have made several Lazy Girl bags as gifts and one to donate to a fundraising auction. Everyone loves them!

  30. Michelle — March 18, 2013 @ 2:00 pm

    Stunning give away. Thank you!
    I have not made a bag, but it is on my quilting bucket list.

  31. pam feare — March 18, 2013 @ 2:02 pm

    I have made myself many a City Bag and loved them, I have not tried these particular stabilizers. It’s also time for me to try a new style.

  32. Martha in Campbell Hall — March 18, 2013 @ 2:02 pm

    cute, cute… I would love to make this bag…

  33. Dawn Pilotti — March 18, 2013 @ 2:03 pm

    Just finished a “wow” bag which converts to a duffle. Made a Miranda for my neighbor and my daughter. We would all love a Mini Miranda so I hope I win the pattern. Thanks.

  34. Judy Bentley — March 18, 2013 @ 2:05 pm

    I just finished making my first Candace bag after having made 4 Margo’s. This time I used some foamy interfacing that I got before Stiff Stuff came out. After all that hard work, I am wishing that I had used Stiff Stuff instead. The bag looked great the first day, but it is getting some strange little wrinkles in it. Oh dear! I love Lazy Girl patterns because the directions are so good and the styles are really pretty. Miranda looks like a winner, too!

  35. Mary L — March 18, 2013 @ 2:09 pm

    The last bag I made was a Candace. Just love those bags!

  36. Becky — March 18, 2013 @ 2:10 pm

    This looks like so much fun, and I’d . Love to try the new interface a Xing.

  37. Nancy — March 18, 2013 @ 2:12 pm

    I’ve been making Runaround Bags lately….and some Whimsy. But I really need to try out the mini-Miranda and the new interfacings. 🙂

    You make THE BEST bag patterns, because they are easy to sew, easy to follow, and always turn out great!


  38. Eden — March 18, 2013 @ 2:13 pm

    Too cute! I have never made a bag before and this one is too cute to pass up!!

  39. Karen — March 18, 2013 @ 2:14 pm

    I’m making a bag right now… give away in a swap. Rats! I could use a bag myself and this is a beaut!

  40. Sheila Galindo — March 18, 2013 @ 2:16 pm

    Love the Lazy Girl patterns and I’m looking forward to seeing them in the quilt shop. I’m also very impressed with you new interfacing products.

  41. Gayle Davis — March 18, 2013 @ 2:17 pm

    The last bag I made was one of your slicker totes. It was easy, and a fun way to try the new Lazy Girl products! The new bag would be a perfect size for spring!

  42. Linda — March 18, 2013 @ 2:17 pm

    I love your patterns and have made one of each, my daughters love them and they each have their own choices on sizes, etc.

  43. Jane B — March 18, 2013 @ 2:19 pm

    Love your bags! Making one is on my to-do list. I really like your new packaging showing the bag being worn by a model. Really helps to see the size of the bag in perspective. Thanks for a great give-away offer!

  44. Claire — March 18, 2013 @ 2:24 pm

    Looks like I need to make a mini miranda since I have “Two” patterns in my stash. How did that happen? Guess I really liked the look. Love your idea of putting a person on the purse and love any giveaway. Keep up the good work!

  45. Sandy Case — March 18, 2013 @ 2:25 pm

    I love making purses. In October, I made one with snowman fabric. Lazy Girl patterns are my favorite, they’re directions are so easy to follow? .

  46. Ellie — March 18, 2013 @ 2:29 pm

  47. Elizabeth DeBlock — March 18, 2013 @ 2:30 pm

    I have made several bags from your various patterns. The Miranda Bag is one of my favorites. Looking forward to making in the mini-size. I have not tried your new interfacing, but look forward to ordering and receiving the product. Always enjoy your posts.

  48. nancy chandler — March 18, 2013 @ 2:32 pm
