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

  3. Mary Ann — March 18, 2013 @ 9:14 pm

    I think your bag patterns are terrific! Especially the easy zipper top.

  4. rainjerette — March 18, 2013 @ 9:15 pm

    Would love a chance to win! Haven’t made a bag in a bit, but there are a few on the list of things to make this year. Thank you!

  5. Margaret — March 18, 2013 @ 9:25 pm

    Unfortunately, I haven’t made any bags lately; trying to finish a quilt first. Mini Miranda is beautiful; love all the pockets. Looking forward to trying some new interfacing when I do get to bag-sewing.

  6. Ghee — March 18, 2013 @ 9:25 pm

    I really like this bag. I haven’t made a bag in some time, but it is about time for one. Your bags are spectacular, and i look forward to each posting of the blog.

  7. Patty Foster — March 18, 2013 @ 9:31 pm

    I need a new purse and this is just the right size.

  8. Glenda Brownlee — March 18, 2013 @ 9:40 pm

    Just finished making a new bag a month ago. It is in spring colors–wish that season would hurry and come:) Love the fabric in this Mini Miranda.

  9. Kristine Heilman — March 18, 2013 @ 9:47 pm

    ooh! ooh! pick me! pick me!

    Hi, I love this bag. It’s just right for the Lazie in me. I’m finishing a bag for my aunt made with red hat fabrics. Then I’d like to try this one. Thanks for reading my entry.

  11. Ginny — March 18, 2013 @ 10:03 pm

    The last bag I made was a Candice, which I used every day of the 18 that my husband was hospitalized back in November. I prefer a larger bag, such as the full-sized Miranda, but with walking through the parking garage and hospital every day (and leaving late at night), I wanted the security of a fully-zipped bag. Candice served me well! I have another cut out for my daughter. I own quite a few of your patterns, but not the Mini Miranda, so I’d love to win one!

  12. Lynda Kyse — March 18, 2013 @ 10:17 pm

    This is one of the nicest items I have seen. I really like the way it is put together. This is one pattern I would love to have.

  13. Harriet Campbell — March 18, 2013 @ 10:57 pm

    I have not yet but need to so I have one to use when I go to my mother in laws for the weekend this looks like a great one to start with. Thanks for chance to win

  14. Sara T — March 18, 2013 @ 11:07 pm

    I want to make 60 bags to give away at a church function in October for women turning 50 this year. I have enough stash fabric to cover it. I just need stiffener, bottoms and a couple different patterns. I should be able to find a ‘few’ appropriate patterns here.

  15. Rachael K. — March 18, 2013 @ 11:25 pm

    Yes! Took a basic sewing class last month where we made simple tote bags. They turned out lovely, but could use a good dose of stiffening with some of your interfacing (we just used plain quilting weight cotton).

  16. Cindy M — March 18, 2013 @ 11:28 pm

    I made my first tote bag last year. It’s great for a large “project bag” but I find it’s too big for just every day use. I really like the look of this Mini Miranda bag. It looks like just the size I’m looking for.

  17. Leah — March 18, 2013 @ 11:44 pm

    I just finished a bag for my daughter….

  18. Vanessa B — March 18, 2013 @ 11:58 pm

    I have made a bag…finished it yesterday πŸ™‚ I love this Mini Mi! Thanks!!!

  19. Marion — March 18, 2013 @ 11:59 pm

    I love the look of this bag…with all the pockets. I would love to win the drawing. It would be lots of fun to make the bag for Spring and Summer. Thanks for the give away!!

  20. Carla G — March 19, 2013 @ 12:03 am

    What a fabulous bag!! I haven’t had a chance to make any bags lately as I’ve been sewing my kids clothes, but this bag looks like a good start back to bag making. πŸ™‚ Thanks for a chance to win! πŸ™‚

  21. jacci — March 19, 2013 @ 12:04 am

    Love this bag! Need all kinds of pockets! Found this site a little while ago and it is awesome!

  22. Liz O — March 19, 2013 @ 12:12 am

    I just got my fabrics out to make a tote for a dear friend of mine… This Mini Miranda tote would be perfect for her πŸ˜‰ thanks for the chance to win!
    Have a wonderful day!

  23. Dottie — March 19, 2013 @ 12:20 am

    I haven’t made a bag in awhile and would love to use your interfacings. My sister needs a new bag!!!

  24. Renee G — March 19, 2013 @ 12:33 am

    I made a bag last summer.

  25. Alma Lou — March 19, 2013 @ 1:06 am

    I’m in the process of making a bag. Am at the “embellish with embroidery” step, and once that is done, it should go together quickly.

    I love bags and purses with lots of pockets inside. However, I do prefer a secure closure–zipper-for security. I was pick-pocketed a while back and learned my lesson. So, I simply set in a placket with a zipper before finishing the binding at the top of my bags.
    I am such a klutz my bags often fall on the florr and spill stuff–everything. I love the handy compartments too, so eveyrthing is at hand.
    Lazy Girl has wonderful construction techniques that make a beautiful bag simple.

  26. Sue Bone — March 19, 2013 @ 1:50 am

    What great summery fresh colours you’ve used for the bag. I haven’t made a bag but I did make a divided basket last week.

  27. Suzi — March 19, 2013 @ 1:54 am

    Haven’t made a bag in a while but just finished making wallets for the grandchildren! So a new bag would be great.

  28. Marthie — March 19, 2013 @ 2:03 am

    I am looking forward in making a bag from Lasy Girl Designs that my daughter in the UK managed to get from a store in the UK as we dont get the patterns in my country. JUST CANT WAIT TO START but have to wait until April as it will only be then that I will get the batting(also from the UK)

  29. Shaz — March 19, 2013 @ 2:03 am

    I’ve never made a tote – this looks like a nice simple one to start with … cute too!

  30. Bonnie Wilbar — March 19, 2013 @ 2:07 am

    I would love to make your new bag. Love all the pockets

  31. Joyce Burton — March 19, 2013 @ 2:08 am

    I haven’t make a bag yet but I have lots of patterns. Love this one too!!

  32. Sue Stubbings — March 19, 2013 @ 3:27 am

    I’ve made Miranda but never a mini I love my Miranda she is soo great to take out but a mini would be a wonderful addition to my growing selection of bags

  33. Ranju Gandhi — March 19, 2013 @ 3:29 am

    I would love to win this one…love your patterns

  34. Donna Ciaccio — March 19, 2013 @ 4:13 am

    I haven’t made a bag lately, but I just purchased a few yards of an oh-so-cute fabric that just had to have, and this would be the perfect project to use it for.

  35. Jan johnson — March 19, 2013 @ 4:42 am

    I LOVE your patterns and so hope I win!! Keep them coming!!

  36. Janice Beitz — March 19, 2013 @ 4:48 am

    I have not made a bag lately but I have fabric that I got last summer for a bag but have not made yet. Swimmers in the pool with lane lines for the main fabric and grey for the poolside sidewalk. I can picture this made up in the Mini Miranda.

  37. Kathy — March 19, 2013 @ 4:59 am

    Love the mini; would love an even smaller version for little girls.

    Have made your bags before, they turn out perfect everytime.

  38. Dorothy — March 19, 2013 @ 6:10 am

    What a great bag! Haven’t done one in awhile.

  39. Laurie Shook — March 19, 2013 @ 6:20 am

    I’ve made the Miranda before, and it is really a nice looking bag when finished. Very sturdy and lots of storage. This size looks great!

  40. Judy Cooper — March 19, 2013 @ 6:34 am

    I haven’t made a bag yet this year but I did make the professional tote for travel a while back. This bag pattern looks great.

  41. Mary Chevalier — March 19, 2013 @ 6:51 am

    Your Bag is beautiful. I have only made 1 bag and that was a year or two ago.Would love to win this one .

  42. Emily — March 19, 2013 @ 6:52 am

    Love the lazy bags. They are so fun. Love all the fun pictures you post on line.

  43. Sonja — March 19, 2013 @ 6:56 am

    I’m a bag sewing newbie and love your patterns! I would love the opportunity to win some of your interfacing and a beautiful bag. Thanks for making such great patterns – the results allow even newbies to be proud of their finished product!

  44. Linda Jo — March 19, 2013 @ 7:17 am

    I just finished my first tote bag, now I’m hooked! This bag looks like it would be a wonderful size for those of us that cannot travel without the essentials πŸ™‚ OH! and look at all the pockets! πŸ™‚

  45. Karen — March 19, 2013 @ 7:22 am

    I’m new to sewing and have always wanted to make my own bags as a girl; now I’m finally starting to do it! I’ve started making a few basic ones and I would love to try out this mini-Miranda! I love the size, organization within, and that it uses interfacing! Thanks for the chance to win!

  46. Sue Donohue — March 19, 2013 @ 7:50 am

    I am a purse and tote bag freak!!! I luv ’em! The latest ones I made were for gifts this past Christmas!

  47. janet — March 19, 2013 @ 8:02 am

    Love your patterns. Instructions are always very easy to understand, construction is simple….. Can’t wait to make the mini. Last bag I made was 3 months ago for a birthday gift. The recipient LOVED it!!!! Thanks to you and your talent.

  48. Marion — March 19, 2013 @ 8:06 am

    Love your patterns! I would love to win!

  49. Karen Hall — March 19, 2013 @ 8:12 am

    I made a bag recently!! It’s a version of a mini messenger bag – perfect for holding a tablet or e-reader (or both)! The Runaround Bag is still my favorite bag ever! I think I have one in every color πŸ™‚

  50. Mary Ellen Tardiff — March 19, 2013 @ 8:15 am

    Hi! Yes, I recently made a small bag to be used at my only daughter’s wedding later this summer. It was a purselette by Fig Tree Designs. I love making bags!! Why pay for a Vera Bradley when I can make it myself out of the fabrics I want to use!!
