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 yd Stiff Stuff Firm sew-in interfacing

    It is past time for a new Lazy Girl bag–so hard to choose which one-but know for sure there will be a Wonder Wallet to match. I am thinking it will be Candice–so perfect for my busy days. Thanks for the great patterns.

  2. Hedy Nelson — March 19, 2013 @ 8:25 am

    I love Lazy Girl Designs. Have made a number of them. Would love to make a Mini Mi!

  3. Susan Fogel — March 19, 2013 @ 8:26 am

    Your patterns are so perfect for every occasion. Your instructions clear, and amusing!
    I know when I cut the first piece right through to finishing the bag, everything will fit together, and I will have a gorgeous bag in a few hours.

  4. Phyllis Moore — March 19, 2013 @ 8:39 am

    Haven’t made a bag in some time. I need a new one for spring and this
    is the one.

  7. Maggiw — March 19, 2013 @ 9:06 am

    I haven’t made a bag before, and would love to start with this one!!

  8. kate — March 19, 2013 @ 9:09 am

    the last bag i made was last year for a friends birthday. I love to make bags from upcycling old jeans and then i put ribbons and doilies and buttons on it. i even made a special pocket for her beloved cans of energy drink!! I am now a fashion student, but i do love making bags 😀

  9. carol — March 19, 2013 @ 9:10 am

    Love the new pattern! I have made several of your bags and organizer pockets. Always get lots of compliments when I carry one of them!

  11. Joyce in NC — March 19, 2013 @ 9:46 am

    I have not made a bag in a few months. I am ready to make a new for the summer. Please enter me in the giveaway.

  12. holli smith — March 19, 2013 @ 9:51 am

    The last bag I made was a Margo. I use it every day. Have also made Chelsea, Miranda, and Whimsy. Would so love to try your new interfacings/fleece. No one around here has them. Love the mini version, and would love to try out a new purse/tote!

  13. Sara — March 19, 2013 @ 9:55 am

    I haven’t made one for a while, but am planning to crochet one with a sewn lining next month for a facebook challenge. I love this one,though and wish my fabric picking skills were this stellar.

  14. denise clason — March 19, 2013 @ 9:59 am

    Hi Joan, I would love to win this pattern, as I need to make a purse/tote for an auction for young girls to earn money for camp! This would be the perfect tote to make, it’s cute, colorful and has everything you’d need!

  15. kathy — March 19, 2013 @ 10:28 am

    love this bag. it looks like a good size. and would love to try the interfacing!

  16. Leta Beard — March 19, 2013 @ 10:43 am

    I’m just now finding you!!! I LOVE your things

    Hope I win!!!


  17. Barbara Lange — March 19, 2013 @ 10:56 am

    Dear Joan,
    I think I have almost all of your patterns. My favorite is the “Margo”. I have made at least eight of them. Some have been gifts to family and about four have been donated to our senior center when we have a craft show twice a year. The bag is put into a tea cup auction and has made quite a bit of money for the center. I already have one in progress for our fair which is May 4th. I also will try your new stabilizer in this one. Thanks for all your inspiration.
    Barbara Lange

  18. Carol Mathers — March 19, 2013 @ 11:02 am

    I made Margo not too long ago, loved her, however before I got to load her up a visiting friend from New Zealand did too, so sent her home with her! must make another one for me! Love all you patterns!

  19. Ellen Brown — March 19, 2013 @ 11:58 am

    Love mini Miranda and her bigger sister. Different fabrics change their look entirely. Thanks for your designs and very well written instructions.

  20. Cindi C — March 19, 2013 @ 12:44 pm

    I have made Mini Miranda! She’s perfect, size, colors etc. I have used a number of your patterns, they are so easy. Thanks.

  28. Teresa — March 19, 2013 @ 2:19 pm

    Never made a bag but would love to make this one. I need a nice bag to carry all my supplies to quilting guild. Thanks

  29. Yessant Habetz — March 19, 2013 @ 2:20 pm

    I made a Mondo bag over the weekend but love the look of a more structured bag. I would love the opportunity to try making this one. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  30. Cynthia Rathunde — March 19, 2013 @ 2:25 pm

    I recently made the Lazy Girl Pattern-Lilly. I used Tula Pink’s Salt Water fabric line and have received so many compliments.

    I was just thinking about picking up another pattern of theirs to work on, i would love to win this one!

  31. nancy hill — March 19, 2013 @ 2:26 pm

    have not made a bag yet. looks to be the right size

  32. Sue Scott — March 19, 2013 @ 2:30 pm

    I have only made one bag in my life. I’m curious about your interfacing… is it different that what you can get at Joann Fabric ?? I hope I win your bag pattern. It looks very cool. I’m tired of the store bought purses but haven’t looked for a pattern, as of yet. I’m hopeful that I will win your pattern.

  33. Patricia Davis — March 19, 2013 @ 2:42 pm

    I have not made a bag in a while but I have some material just waiting to make one for a dear friend. I have been making quilts and finished one for my son 2 weeks ago, have the top for a full size log cabin half finished and have the top for a baby blanket almost finished. I am working on it today but just took a break. I would love to win this prize. Thank you for the chance. I am a new follower as well.

  34. Patricia Kunze — March 19, 2013 @ 2:44 pm

    I really like the colorful Mini Miranda bag! Would love to make one for myself and one for a friend. It would be fantastic to win this.

  35. Margie Veon — March 19, 2013 @ 2:51 pm

    I am due for a new summer City Bag and already have the georgeous black, white, red fabric- would love to use your interfacing!!

  36. Terry Johnson — March 19, 2013 @ 2:53 pm

    Great purse, love all the pockets and Springy look.

  37. Mandy — March 19, 2013 @ 2:59 pm

    I’ve made 18 of the original size Miranda’s and love each of them. I would love to make a mini. I haven’t made any new bags lately.

  38. marilyn — March 19, 2013 @ 3:21 pm

    I have not made a bag in a long time but really want to try something new.

  39. Valerie Boudier — March 19, 2013 @ 3:23 pm

    Have just made a fairly easy bag for a friend

  40. Nikki — March 19, 2013 @ 3:32 pm

    This is a great bag! I recently made a cute library bag for my son with Robot fabric. I am in need of a good “catchall” bag since we are out of the diaper bag but not potty trained yet. Living in Florida we go lots of places for outings most of the day. Moms always carry snacks and I always end up with Matchbox cars in my purse;)

  41. Robin — March 19, 2013 @ 3:42 pm

    I love love love bags!!! I haven’t made a new one for spring yet but I did just purchase a coin purse pattern. Now I have to get hopping and make a bag with a small purse to match!!

  42. Barbara Tyne — March 19, 2013 @ 4:01 pm

    I haven’t had time for sewing lately. My new sewing machine and I are looking forward to quiet afternoons together. This would be a wonderful project to get me off to a wonderful start at my delightful hobby again.

  43. Marcie G. — March 19, 2013 @ 4:16 pm

    Love the design that allows it to stand up rather than collapse when you put it down!

  44. Rachel Whitlow — March 19, 2013 @ 4:37 pm

    Love this bag! Designed and made my own bag a couple months ago and about to start on my second!

  45. Joy N — March 19, 2013 @ 4:48 pm

    I made the slicker tote and Claire, I have Candice that the fabric is waiting for…..

  46. Beth in TN — March 19, 2013 @ 4:49 pm

    This is a great bag! I make a bag whenever one of my friends has a birthday. So far nobody’s ever said “do not send me a bag!”

  47. Linda Reisinger — March 19, 2013 @ 5:11 pm

    Thanks for another great bag pattern. I love making bags of all kinds and really think this one is cute. Have a number of Lazy Girl patterns and each has been easy to make. Can’t wait to get this one soon.

  48. Belinda K-N — March 19, 2013 @ 5:19 pm
