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

    Oh I just love bags and have been making my toddler many different types of bags lately. Shoulder bags, drawstring bags. They are colourful and so good to store loads of toys etc

  2. Lin M. — March 18, 2013 @ 2:51 pm

    I love making bags! Just finished a Lazy Girl bag for my mom for mother’s day — for once I am ahead of a holiday! Would love to try your interfacing.

  3. Hazel Syrett — March 18, 2013 @ 2:52 pm

    Just what I need – a bag that doesn’t swamp you but has loads of pockets! Perfect for petite ladies. In fact a mini Miranda for a mini me!


  4. Ellen Pawlik — March 18, 2013 @ 2:52 pm

    I really need a new spring bag, as my winter City Bag is far too dark! I need to make something bright to lift my spirits!

  5. Janet Peterson — March 18, 2013 @ 2:55 pm

    I have made quite a few purses, but never one of yours. Looking forward to trying one in the near future. Thanks for a chance to win some “goodies”

  6. Leslie — March 18, 2013 @ 2:57 pm

    Love it! I would enjoy making it

  7. Cheryl Ashmore — March 18, 2013 @ 2:57 pm

    I haven’t made a bag in a while but I love this one! I really love bags too!! My DH is always giving me a bad time about it….but that is life—right? Thanks for a chance to win.

  8. Cynthia Weddle — March 18, 2013 @ 2:58 pm

    I recently made a “Candace” bag as a gift. “She” was a HUGE hit. I made myself one first and love her. I have several Lazy Girl patterns and appreciate the explicit instructions. My next trip to the cutting table is for the “Claire”, also to be a gift. Thanks again for all the wonderful patterns.

  9. Pam C — March 18, 2013 @ 3:02 pm

    I just made a bag for my daughter. I used a pattern I hadn’t tired before and we both hated it. I made some adjustments and it is ok now.

  10. Tina — March 18, 2013 @ 3:06 pm

    I made a bag from a magazine pattern, Quilts and More, but it’s more of a ‘project bag’, oversize hobo style. This bag is amazing!! I love all those pockets!! I hope I win but even if I don’t this one is definitely on my list to own!!

  11. Fran — March 18, 2013 @ 3:07 pm

    Love your patterns!

  12. Kathy O in GA — March 18, 2013 @ 3:11 pm

    I love the new look to the pattern – great for really seeing the scale of the bag – and the fabrics you used on it are just yummy! Thanks for the chance to win!

  13. Ruth Jones — March 18, 2013 @ 3:16 pm

    Yes I have made one that is pieced with a log cabin design and than a big fussy cut flower adhered to it with Steam A Seam. I love this one on your page because of the flap closer and the “pockets” inside too.

  14. Lori — March 18, 2013 @ 3:18 pm

    I last made a tote bag with a ‘crazy quilt’ pieced front. It turned out great. I like to add zipper pockets to the interior of the bags & purses I make. Your new pattern front looks great!

  15. Cheryl — March 18, 2013 @ 3:18 pm

    Great idea to re-release. Love this bag and would love the chance to win it with the new product.

  16. Denise — March 18, 2013 @ 3:21 pm

    It has been too long since I have made a bag! This is great inspiration. Thanks.

  17. gatorgirl4325 — March 18, 2013 @ 3:23 pm

    I made and wore out a full size Miranda. I haven’t had time to make a new one, but would (almost) give you my first born to be able to make a new one. 😉

  18. Blanca — March 18, 2013 @ 3:24 pm

    I love your designs and I am very curious to try your new product on the bags! Thanks for the opportunity and for a chance to win.

  19. barbara woods — March 18, 2013 @ 3:26 pm

    would love to win thanks

  20. Pat Bollman — March 18, 2013 @ 3:27 pm

    Just finished a new bag yesterday. Used my embroidery machine to decorate the pockets. I love making bags and have several Lazy Girl patterns.

  21. Joyce — March 18, 2013 @ 3:27 pm

    This is a great size and look great!!!

  22. Jennifer Padden — March 18, 2013 @ 3:42 pm

    I was just looking at my current Miranda this morning and thinking it is time to make a new one. I took time off of making bags to make a Mother of the Bride dress. She got married two weeks ago and I took the week off last week. I’m ready and rarin’ to go again and could really use the new pattern and accessories! Thanks for the offer.

  23. Mary Guiler — March 18, 2013 @ 3:45 pm

    I haven’t made a bag lately, but have a few planned. Ready to get started!

  24. Ellen Gambrell — March 18, 2013 @ 3:49 pm

    Yes, I’ve made several bags lately. That little bag I made for the Evelyn Grace Foundation is a go-to favorite for gift giving. They always go over well!


  25. Judi Cujas — March 18, 2013 @ 3:50 pm

    I love making bags. I have been looking for quite a while to find your fusible fleece with absolutely no luck. I live in NW PA. I generally only shop in quilt shops and rarely venture into the big box stores. Where could I find your fusible fleece? Thank you for your great patterns.

  26. Maryann — March 18, 2013 @ 3:51 pm

    Hi have made the Margo bag and very impressed with zipper insertion am anxious to try your new mini Miranda

  27. jane wade — March 18, 2013 @ 3:54 pm

    would like to make this purse for friends.

  28. Shirley — March 18, 2013 @ 4:00 pm

    I love your patterns, especially now that I’ve figured out how to make some of the pockets zippered. I find that the wide-open inside pockets make it too easy for my phone, etc. to fall out.

  29. Eileen — March 18, 2013 @ 4:02 pm

    I haven’t made a Lazy Girl pattern lately. The last bag I made was a Mini Bowtucks for a class I taught.

  30. Beverly Atkins — March 18, 2013 @ 4:03 pm

    Love this bag and all the pockets. Will definitely have to make it.

  31. Louise Davenport — March 18, 2013 @ 4:03 pm

    I haven’t made a bag in more than a year, so I could use this to kick start me!

  32. Alice Cunningham — March 18, 2013 @ 4:04 pm

    This bag reminds me of summer and all the fun fabrics makes it perfect for the season. I have not made or purchased a a new bag in a very long time BUT just last Thurdsay I bought a new pattern. I should have waited, I like this one better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. helen stewart — March 18, 2013 @ 4:06 pm

    I would love to use some of your interfacing for a new purse. I’m itching to make a new on, although I have made several by your patterns.

  34. Debbie McClain — March 18, 2013 @ 4:06 pm

    I have made several of your bags…Frankly I think The Lily is the cutest (I have made 2 for gifts and 1 for me). I have also made 2 Maggie bags. In addition I have fabric for the Margo and the regular size Miranda. You may think I’m crazy but I want to make them all. The Runaround bag is cut out to be used for my Kendle Fire, but it may be too small so I may use the Sassy bag instead. I love how you have thought out your pattern steps…You have made a believer out of me and I sing your praises to my friends who sew…anxiously await any new pattern

  35. Dona Mohr — March 18, 2013 @ 4:09 pm

    Am always looking for Lazy Girl patterns…How about Lazy Girl Housework? I’d be in for that!
    Thanks for the opportunity to be in the drawing.

  36. Carolyn H — March 18, 2013 @ 4:10 pm

    I’ve made several Mirandas, but haven’t gotten the Mini as yet. Love the fabric on new pattern envelop. Love all your patterns.

  37. judy — March 18, 2013 @ 4:11 pm

    Love the bag. Have made a couple quite some time ago but never used your interfacing. Would like to though. Have also made several of your other designs.

  38. Alice Collins — March 18, 2013 @ 4:27 pm

    I have my first Lazy Girl bag in the works. Love the size and look of this one!

  39. Sandra Hedrick — March 18, 2013 @ 4:27 pm

    I haven’t made a purse for a little while, but have one in the planning stages. I have the fabric, just have to go through my patterns & see which one to make. I would love to win this. I like the size too, & the fabric it’s made out of. Thanks for the chance!

  40. Patti — March 18, 2013 @ 4:28 pm

    This looks like a fun bag to make and to have. I just got the Margo Bag Pattern but havent made it yet. Thanks for sharing with all of us!

  41. Sherri — March 18, 2013 @ 4:33 pm

    Cute bag! I’ll have to make it for spring! I recently made your Newport Bag!

  42. SueAnn Wirick — March 18, 2013 @ 4:45 pm

    I just made a purse from your line of wonderful patterns and have one cut out for my daughter. This give away is a really nice one. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  43. Carole — March 18, 2013 @ 4:45 pm

    Love this bag, have not made it yet, but love to make the Margo bags. Get complements all the time on them. Getting ready for a retreat where I tend to make more bags….

  44. Linda Sadler — March 18, 2013 @ 4:47 pm

    No I haven’t made a tote since before Christmas. Just can’t get back to sewing much this new year. Gonna have . I would sure love to win this pattern. I love it. Linda Sadler

    I sure enjoy your newsletters.
    Thank you

  45. Julia Organtini — March 18, 2013 @ 4:48 pm

    This has been a tough school year, I haven’t done any sewing since September! I have admired the ‘lazy’ method for quite some time and I would love to make a Lazy purse.

  46. Debbie — March 18, 2013 @ 4:49 pm

    Love the bag and the pockets it has in it! Great way to keep me organized, I’ve never made a bag, but, would certainly give it a try if I was to win this!
    Thanks for the entry.


  47. Jannette — March 18, 2013 @ 4:49 pm

    I’ve made myself several Margo bags – my favourite bag pattern ever. I find that the fabric handles start to “wear” after about a year – good excuse to make another one! I have the Miranda pattern, and that will probably be my next bag – the fabrics are already chosen – just need to find a spare hour. You don’t sell them, do you? LOL

  48. Sharel Jane — March 18, 2013 @ 4:54 pm

    Purses are Pretty…its been awhile since I made one but purchased two at our recent quitl guild boutique…My “pursemaker” loves Laziy Girl Patterns I hope to get my courage up to make a purse.

  49. Linda Nelson — March 18, 2013 @ 4:55 pm

    I’m making small bags and clothes for my trip to Florida!

  50. Virginia — March 18, 2013 @ 4:58 pm

    Oh my, I do love this bag. Would love to win…I have several Lazy girls bag patterns. Clemmie
