Giveaway: Mini Miranda Pattern and Sew Lazy Interfacing
Lazies, I made this gorgeous Mini Miranda Bag using our new Sew Lazy interfacing and some scrumptious Joel Dewberry prints. Oh my I love that orange and blue. Yum! The Mini Miranda uses a combination of interfacings to get its incredible stand-up-i-tude. Now, I designed this some time ago, before I discovered our new Stiff Stuff, so let me walk through the construction and show you what I did. Be sure to leave a comment after this blog post to enter our giveaway for Mini Miranda pattern and Sew Lazy supplies.
***Giveaway is closed, Sept. 21, 2012***
The outside of the Mini Miranda Bag LGD124 (and the Miranda Day Bag LGD123) are constructed of quilted panels or blocks sewn together. To quilt, the fabrics are backed with our Dreamy sew-in or fusible fleece, then stitched and pieced into the cover panel below. I like to topstitch along the seams to help the seam allowances lay flat and I think it adds a nice finishing detail.
Below we have four quilted panels, backed with Dreamy fusible fleece, stitched together
into the front of the bag. The pattern calls for two, one each for the front and back. Easy as can be.
Below is the back view. You can see the Dreamy fleece in place and quilted.
I trim the seam allowances a bit at the edges to reduce bulk during final construction.
Then we cut the corner notches that will create the box bottom of the bag.
Finally, top the whole thing with Face-It Firm fusible med/heavy interfacing. Note that I keep it
in from the side and bottom edges to reduce bulk in the seam allowances during final construction.
The combination of Dreamy fusible fleece and Face-It Firm fusible interfacing really work together to create great posture in Mini Miranda. Let me tell you – This. Baby. Stands. Up. Straight.
I designed the bag using this combination of interfacing/fleece because that’s all I knew was available to me at the time. Now we also have the choice of using Stiff Stuff Firm sew-in interfacing.
Sew Lazy Interfacing Options
We have three good options to support the Mini Miranda Bag. This is just for the cover fabric. You’ll still want to use Face-It Firm to interface the lining fabric.
– Dreamy fusible fleece + Face-It Firm
– Stiff Stuff + Face-It Firm
– Stiff Stuff by itself (skip the Face-It Firm for the cover pieces, but do remember to use Face-It for the lining fabric)
Remember that Stiff Stuff has no loft, so if you want a quilty look, go for the Dreamy fleece. You can quilt the Stiff Stuff, but again, it won’t have the trademark ‘quilty’ look.
2/3 yd Dreamy Fusible Fleece (or 1 yd Stiff Stuff)
1 1/2 yd Face-It Firm fusible med/heavy interfacing
Where To Buy
Sew Lazy Interfacing has started shipping to quilt shops. Ask your local quilt shop or online retailer.

I think Mini Miranda is lovely! Hugs, Gunilla Gustafsson
I love all the purses you’ve come up with – keep up the great work!
Can’t wait for the interfacing to be in one of our local shops. I’m a “bag” lady if there ever was one.
Miranda is one of my favorites – I’ve made 10+ so far. I haven’t tried the interfacings and fleece yet but it’s on my to-do list. I don’t want to hurt Miranda’s feelings but Candice is my new favorite.
The Mini Miranda looks cute, cute! It’s just the right size for just the right amount of stuff. I’m interested in the interfacing. I’ll,look for it at my LQSs. Thanks!
I would like to try the interfacing, sounds nice and the mini miranda bag looks to be just my size!
I love the Mini Miranda! I’ve never been happy with the interfacings I’ve used for purses and totes and I have a feeling the Sew Lazy interfacings will be the ONE I’ve been looking for!

Love Mini Miranda’s look. Can’t wait to try the interfacing.
The Mini Miranda looks great. I enjoy reading your blog and look forward to trying the new interfacing.
Over he mini Miranda, and I can’t wait to get some Sew Lazy interfacing! Than for the chance!
Looks like a great all around town kind of bag – love it!! Love how your directions include all the tips about trimming seams to reduce bulk – makes the finished product so much nicer! Looking forward to finding all the Lazy Girl products in my local shops!
Love your bags and the clear instructions w/ pics!
I love the Mini Miranda. it’s just big enough to use for shopping. thanks for the chance.
Cute, want to see it out of batik which is my fav.
Love Lazy Girl designs! Can’t wait to get my hands on the new interfacing!!
I recently finished a Margo bag using a stiffer interfacing and battingi and I love the way it stands up and holds its shape. I can’t wait to try these products for my next project.
Love the colors!!!!!! Can’t wait to find the interfacing in my LQS. Awesome!
Oh how I love your patterns and would love to win this giveaway! Thanks for entering me!
Just the bag I’ve been looking for.
LOVE this Mini Miranda !! The new interfacing looks wonderful. Keep up the good work 🙂
Joan Sensei! I always love reading your blogs. Mini Miranda is just wonderful; I have made one for my mother who is 82 this year and she just loves it!
I’m looking forward to trying the interfacing on my next bag project. Thanks for your website and especially thanks for your patterns.
I wish I had found the pattern here in my country – but so far no luck … Anyway, I enjoy bagmaking, so I will try to get hold of the “Stiff Stuff” as it seems so smart to work with, and the bags can (as you showed me in an earlier post) be treated quite hard, and yet get back in shape -LOVE THAT!!
I love the Lazy Girl patterns I have tried and am eager to try this one using the new interfacing. Purses are so much fun to make and they always fit!
I have loved this bag for a while now. This is just the motivation I needed to add it to my list.
I LOVE all your patterns but especially the mini purses!! Can’t wait to try your new interfacings!
Would love to try the interfacing also. Mini Miranda is such a cute bag. Will have to check my local shop to see what it she is carrying your products now. Thank you! firstname.lastname@example.org
Mini Miranda is the perfect size for everyday on the go..all day.
You have such a talent to explain how to do your patterns… I always know yours are doable for me.. not so on other patterns..
Can’t wait to be able to get some of your supplies… I know they will be great…
I like making bags and think the new fusible fleece and interfacings will be a great improvement over what has been available. Have wanted to try one of the Miranda’s.
I love, love, love your patterns and clear instructions. I feel like you’re right besides me giving me a personal “how to!” I can’t wait to try your new interfacings and since I never know which one to chose, I love the names you have given them.
That is so cute, and it doesn’t look all that difficult. Love it.
I love (and frequently use) my full-size Miranda, so the Mini is sure to be a winner!
Lovely purse. Like your patterns very much.
Love your patterns and can’t wait to try the new interfacing. I love making bags and have wanted something to stiffen them a bit and this sounds perfect.
I’m so excited to try this new interfacing! I love crisp lines on bags, so your Face It is right up my alley. Thanks for continuing to develop your great ideas! My daughters tote all their ballet gear in little Summer bags.
Good Morning Oh I love the colors..I live in TN so the orange is perfect and the bag is just as cute as it can be. I will have to check our local LQS which is Sew-Bee-It, to see if they carry the interfacing because I think it is very important to use the perfect interfacing to make the bag look professionally sewn and I love the way you all have your instructions written out sew perfect…thanks for entering me in your give-a-way.
I just love the Mini Miranda! I just made the Gracie bag this past week/weekend and I was looking to purchase the Miranda bag and the new stiff stuff interfacing next! Happy sewing!
Joan…LOVE your bags! Cant wait to try your new Stiff Stuff!
The colours of this bag are soooo good, as is the style, I will certainly be giving this one a go!
I am so excited about the line of interfacing I can’t wait. If I had the money I’d go ahead and order the set on bolts! It’s so easy to understand what each one is, and I’m so tired of going and feeling up all of the interfacing until one has the hand I’m looking for. I think this is great!
Mini Miranda looks like the perfect bag for so many uses!
I love the Miranda Tote, so I guess the Mini Miranda Bag will be as loveable. I am looking forward to try the new interfacing!
I have been a long time fan of the Lazy Girl patterns. I believe have made all of them, at least once! I’m thrilled that you have come out with a line of interfacings and can’t wait to use Stiffy in my next project which will be the Claire in Christmas fabrics!
I have already ordered the Stiff Stuff and others from Sew Thankful who sold out quickly and now am on back order so you see what a need there is for this GOOD interfacing! I have been very disappointed with Decor Bond -can’t wait to try yours on a new bag for me!! Love all your patterns but would like to try the Mini Miranda.
Looks like another great product! Can’t wait to try it.
Just love that you share your wonderful talent with us and how you are always coming up with ways to improve or embellish your original designs!
I love to experiment with new interfacings and try new bag patterns. can’t wait to try both. Stiff Stuff looks like a winner!
Love the purse and can’t wait to buy the interfacing.
I love all your patterns and have made several. Am anxious to try your interfacing
Joan, I love the way the bag looks with your new interfacing. Love your stuff and can’t wait till I can get my hands on some.
Our LQS has gotten all 7 of your new products in and we’re all lovin’ ’em!! I can’t WAIT to try the Iron On Vinyl, so I can wipe my bags clean!
Thank you for all that you do….design, simplify, print, publish, sew samples and continuing to come up with new things all the time!!
I cannot wait to order my own interfacings – I always have so much trouble getting what I need, between the oddball names at the local chain fabric store and the little stock that is available.
Thank you so much for making it easier!
I haven’t tried the mini Miranda yet but look forward to doing so. Can’t wait to try the new interfacings.
I LOVE the Lazy patterns that I have purchased!!!!!!! I make the bags for gifts all the time and my gift recipients are so thrilled with the style, pockets, etc. I don’t have the Miranda or MiniMiranda – I have not yet found it in my area – so I would love to win!!!!
That Mini Miranda looks like the perfect mix between too big and too small. I love the colors, but of course I always love the colors you choose. I haven’t made a purse in a long time, can’t wait to try one with your new interfacing.
I have not had a chance to used your products yet. I would love to win and try the “stiff stuff”. I sew all sorts or purses and bags & I deffinately need my bags to be stiffer lol
Perhaps this will be the Christmas class/project for my YaYa friends! There will be Miranda bags around the world!
I can’t wait to try the Stiff Stuff; I ordered mine yesterday. It looks like it will work perfectly in my Miranda bag
Love the colors. Blue and Orange Univ. Of Florida colors. Would love to be a part of Lazy Girs for Univ of florida
I love making bags and purses, and I can’t wait to try your new products!
The Mini Miranda Bag is the perfect size and can’t wait to try the new interfacing.
Super cute bag! I am really interested in the new interfacing line and can’t wait to give it a try.
I just love the size of the Mini Miranda, The new stabilizers just add to the “professional” look!
I love to make bags and purses, and I can’t wait to try your new products!
Love this bag. Your use of the new interfacings sound like they will give the bag the perfect stiffness. Can’t wait to try it!!
Love all the Lazy Girl designs, the mini Miranda looks like the perfect size bag.
What a great chance to try out your new interfacings! Thanks!
Another cute bag!
Ive loved your purses for a long time. I’m very excited to try this new stabilizer. I know it will make my purses look more polished . Thanks again Joan &’staff for making life easier.
Love the mini Miranda. I’d love to try the new interfacing. Thank you for the nice giveaway.
I love the mini-Miranda, it’s so cute!! It looks like a great size to make for Christmas gifts!! Those new stabilizers make it look so great, with the right combination of stiffness and loft. So gorgeous!!
I love the mini Miranda, I can not wait until the new interfacings get to my sewing store. I love making bags for my slef and others. I teach sewing classes and love to stay on top of things, thanks for trying to improve our sewing notions.
Love the mini Miranda purse. I want to make one for myself and give the new interfacing a try.
I love the Mini Miranda Bag and your other patterns. Your new product line is a great idea, so easy to know which one you need. Can’t wait to use them all.
I love Mini Miranda, she is just gorgeous (especially in that aqua and orange – yum!!). I’d love to try your interfacing, the naming system is such a good idea!
I love, love, love bags and look forward to adding Miranda to my collection!
Joel Dewberry is the best. Cute bag!
Just finished a lovely Candace – and the mini Miranda looks so great – I’d love to stitch it up next!
Your patterns are the best, far and away, for so many reasons. I love them and recommend them to fellow sew-ers.
I see a new fall bag in my future and Christmas presents too! I’ve always loved the Miranda bags but didn’t think I’d be happy with it after lots of use–I prefer a “structured look”. The new interfacings have solved that issue. I can’t wait to try the new products. Thanks!
Your Mini Miranda bag is darling, and I am so anxious to try out the new line of interfacings. It’s just what we’ve needed for far too long!!
“Thank You” for your GREAT Visual Tutorial on using these different interfacings. LUV your Mini-Miranda too. HUGS!!!
I really like your purses and love the interfacing. Still have several patterns from you that I haven’t made yet. Too much to do, not enought time!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE it !!!
Love your patterns. I would like to make them all!
Love your bag patterns, have made several. Can’t wait to get the new interfacing.
I would love to start a bag and have it come out looking finished like the model, Usually I have UFO’s which I dont throw away but keep aroun to remind me how bad I am.
Your mini Miranda is great!!!
The interfacings look fantastic, will need to check with my local shop to see if
their caring it.
This bag would look super in a new fall print.
Please enter me in the giveaway!
I have enjoyed making the Maggie bags and the Miranda bag looks really easy to make also. Plus can’t wait to try the new interfacings that you have now. They look much easier to use then the ones that I have used in the past.
The only thing better than a Mini Miranda is one made w/the new interfacings. Can’t wait to try them and hope they will be carried by a local shop. The Miranda’s are my all time favs!
Love the bag. Would like to have the opportunity to use the new lazy products!
I have some beautiful fabric that I would love to use to make this bag. I can’t wait to order some of your interfacing to use with my other Lazy Girl patterns
One bag is never enough! Can’t wait to try the new interfacings!
The Mini Miranda bag is really cute and the Stiff Stuff looks great! I want to give it a try.
Great post! Thanks for the tips with the seam allowances! The interfacings sound great. Seems like I can never find what I need to make a bag.
Looks very nice.
This is unbelievable – I just had that pattern out last night, planning what fabrics I want to use to make it. So, obviously I love the pattern. Thanks for your offer… I’d love to try the ‘stiff stuff.’
Love the “Mini Miranda Bag”…would love the opportunity to try the Dreamy fusible fleece and Face-It Firm fusible interfacing.
I love the mini Miranda! I can’t wait to try all the new interfacing products! So exciting!
What a cute bag! Thanks for a chance to win!
Mini-M is darling!
I really like this bag pattern. It looks so crisp and easy to customize!
I can’t wait to try Stiff Stuff. Watched the videos, and it will help me achieve the look and feel I want for my bags. Thanks.
I like the mini size. Can’t wait to try the new interfacings.
Love Mini Miranda. Just the right size. Looking forward to trying the new products. My first Mini’s have lost some of their stand-up!
The Lazy Girl Bag patterns are the greatest!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a great tote! The interfacings sound terrific! thanks!
Great bag!!! I need to replace my current quilted bag. Please, Please pick me!!!
Can’t wait to try the new products!
I am looking forward to trying y new interfacing. I watched the video about the Stiff Stuff firm sew-in interfacing on your blog last week….WOW….so cool how it stands up so nice! I have 6 of your bag patterns that I have made for my mother and myself. She loves them and so do I!
Love all your patterns, I am addicted to Lazy Girl!!!!!
I sure do love this bag. Would love to have it.
Oh so cute and can’t wait to try the new interfacings.
Finally all the great purse supplies in one place. Can’t wait to try them all out.
I love this bag! I love how it stands up with the quilted look!
The bag is so cute!!! I’ve only made two other purses and liked one interfacing but not the other but of course, I can’t remember which one it was that I liked. Love to try this one!
Mini Miranda looks like the perfect quilt show bag, and the interfacing does look fabulous. :0)
I love the size of this bag!! I also love that it stands up. It has always been a challenge to get my bags to stand up enough without being to difficult to stitch.
Love it!!! Cannot wait to try the new interfacing!
I love the mini bag and the colors you picked are gorgeous. I would ove to have this pattern to add to my handbags. It looks like its just the right size for me!
Like all of your patterns I’ve tried. Would like to try the Miranda and the new interfacing.
I haven’t needed to get the nice interfacings you found yet but I do love the Miranda bag. It has a classic style with a modern look.
I’d love to chat about how beautiful that bag is, because it is beyond beautiful, but I gotta go order my Dreamy FF and my Sew Lazy Interfacing! Just beautiful, and you keep making it easier!
Love the MiniMiranda. I made a Miranda for a friend and kept thinking I’d love it if it were a bit smaller 🙂
I love how you show the use of your interfacing in the mini bag. Can’t wait to give it a try. Thanks for your instructions.
I love the Mini Miranda bag! I was a fan of the popular quilted bags but I love the fact that I can choose my own fabric and have a bag no one else does! Last Wednesday night I just cut out another mini miranda and a regular miranda for myself too 🙂 Have not yet tried your new interfacings, etc but I hope to be able to order some soon. Oh, my daughters love the runaround bag! It was my youngests first project after a scrappy quilt of 4″ squares. She is so proud of herself and I love that your zipper directions make it easy even for a beginner!
I thank you for finding interfacing that will make the bag stand on its own. Just love all your patterns.
Hey, Lazy Girl…I love that Mini Miranda bag…and the new interfacing looks like a winner to me!
Lovely as always, thanks for sharing with one of us.
Ordered some of your products last week. Can’t wait for them to get here. The bag is stunning. I make lots of bags and am looking forward to trying your products.
Haven’t sat at my sewing machine in over a year, but has has inspired me to give it a try! Thanks for inspiring me!
Can’t wait for the new interfacings to reach the shops in our area. I am on the hunt for the ideal (in my eyes) support for my bags and will certainly be looking for these. Love the fabric in the new Miranda Bag.
Great purse and great products. Thank you for finding the best products to achieve the best results.
I have several of your patterns and like them all. This bag is really cute and I look forward to trying the stiffer interfacing. thanks for the chance to win!
Oh I can’t wait to make bags with your new interfacings…the ones from JoAnn’s can be so frustrating…and I am headed now to print off your tutorial – thanks so much for doing it, the interfacings, your wonderful patterns, and of course the chance to win!
I have been searching for a project to teach the deaf women of Guatemala so they can use their hand woven fabrics and produce a product that can be sold to support their families. This looks like an ideal design for them. It is simple, easy to construct and versatile. Thank you for your creativity.
Can’t wait to try the new Stiff Stuff stabilizer.
That was an excellent tutorial. I like the way that you don’t put the Face-It Firm fusible in the seam allowance. I have had trouble with overly bulky seams. I am going to try this. Thanks so much for the tutorial.
Just love the idea of the new stiff stuff. It sure would love a lot of my baggie bags. I would love to try it out.
Just the right sized bag! I love that there are 6 pockets. I saw a demo of the Stiff Stuff at Sew Expo. It really does do wonders for a purse or tote.
Finally the guessing game is OVER!!! So looking forward to trying your new interfacings!! I really love making bags and have found your directions the very best!!
I have ordered the product and anxiously awaiting the arrival. I sew diaper bags for gifts and all the time experimenting with interfacing. I think I may have found what I have been looking for and thank you for the tutorial.
Love the Mini Miranda. Can’t wait to try your new interfacing products.
Would love to recieve the Sew Lazy supplies to try them out. Plus time to make another purse. Might as well be the Mini Miranda. Love all of the LGD purse patterns.
I’ve made the Miranda and love it–along with many other Lazy Girl purse patterns. Your directions are extremely easy to follow–which is important for a “sewing” challenged person like me since I’m coming from the quilting side of the craft! Purchased the Mini Miranda pattern some time ago and just haven’t had a chance to make it. Perhaps that was providential since now I can experiment with your new interfacings to make it!!
I love the look of the Miranda bag and would love to make one. I love your bags! Am also excited to see the new interfacings and am planning to purchase some.
Can’t wait to try out Stiff Stuff. Looked for it this weekend at a quilt show but didn’t see any. Guess I’ll have to order it online….
My family has threatened to send me, along with all my beautiful bags, to NYC for retirement. If that happens I will be the most stylish bag lady there. Thanks for a chance to enter.
I would love to try your new Stiff Stuff. Such a Clever Name! 🙂 Thank you for the chance to win some.
I think the names you gave to all the interfacings are great! Makes it easy to know what each one does best! Thanks.
Would have like to had these to use in a diaper (2 made) bag made for our last two grandchildren. The process seems so simple. Thanks for the lesson. Love the colors, as well.
I have been making bags for years and this one has so many great hints. Thank you, I will use all of them in the next bag.
Love, Love, Love it!!!! Can’t wait to try the new products!
It has been difficult to find the products to use for these wonderful products that you want to have just “sew”. Thanks for making them easy to find and use!
I prefer small bags and Mini Miranda is as large as I sew for a purse. It’s just great, although, I would prefer a zipper at the top. Having it closed would be just perfect so things don’t fall out and other people’s fingers don’t get in. LOL
Your directions are so wonderful and plainly printed they make sewing bags so much fun.
sewing with a smile, d
I can’t wait to try some of the Sew Lazy interfacing and I love the Mini Miranda!
I’ve always wanted to get the mini miranda bag pattern, but haven’t yet. It’s not too small and not too big. I like all of your bags. I think the new interfacing looks great too.
I would love to win the giveaway.
Now winning this is probably the best chance I have of getting this fabulous sounding stiff stuff here in Australia.
Must check if Hancock s have it.
I have never made a bag before but this would give me everything I would need to get going.
Thanks for having this.
Love the new interfacings! They make a bag look professional not homemade.also like the Mimi size purse,I don’t like a super big purse it’s very hard on the shoulders!
Such a cute bag – and love the fabric used in it.
I have several of your patterns, but have not tried the Miranda bag. The Mini Miranda looks great. I can’t wait to try your new interfacings. Thanks for the giveaway!
Love the new interfacings to make your purse look professional.Also like the mini bag purse it’s big enough for all I need to carry.
I love the way the bag gets body with the ‘stiff stuff’. Would love to use it for some of my projects. Keep up the good work.
I love to make handbags and have several of your patterns. I think its great you have developed interfacing that works great with handbags.
I love the Mini-Miranda…what a great bag….I can’t wait to try the interfacing….thank you for the giveaway…
The new interfacing looks like it will be perfect for the new winter bag I need to make!
Thanks for the tutorial. It is sometimes difficult to decide what to use for “support”. Topstitching makes the seams look great!
I am looking forward to sewing a Mini Miranda!!
I love the new interfacing, it’s great on the bags
I am looking forward to trying your new purse interfacings
Mini Miranda looks awesome! Especially in the fabric you picked….LOVE it!
This is wonderful and thanks for thgreat tutorial!
Love the bag, great directions and quality interfacings – thank you.
I love this bag!!!! The fabrics are fabulous. I also appreiate the pictures showing the steps and the materials you used. I am anxious to try the new stiff stuff. Looks like a great product.
Thanks so much for sharing.
I have just the perfect fabric just waiting for
this bag! the dreamy fleece and interfacing look
like they will make it perfect with not much trouble
I just LOVE being Lazy1
Hmm, wish I could have seen this before I ordered Friday from Sew Thankful–all I bought was the stiff stuff and I should have purchased some Face it! Great post, thank you!
So nice to see a fellow Buckeye designing such great patterns and congrats on moving into the product innovation field. 🙂
I have all of your patterns and can’t wait for one of the local shops to get the new interfacing. People often comment on my bags more than my Coach purses.
I am anxious to try your new interfacings! Will they be quilt shop only, or also available in big box fabric stores too? I have been frustrated with some of the products I have been using, and looking forward to alternatives!!! aghollandattriaddotrrdotcom
Love the way this new interfacing looks. i love your bags so can’t wait to get some of this to use in the construction!
LOOOVVVEEE this Mini Miranda!!! Looking forward to trying the Lazy Girl line of interfacings!
I think the interfacing looks great and can’t wait to try some.
Looks like a perfect-sized bag!!! Love your fabric, too.
I’ve made a regular Miranda and would love the mini for everyday. I’m pretty pumped about the new interfacings and am hoping my LQS (Erica’s!) will carry it!!
Cute, cute bag!!! Can’t wait to try your new interfacing – looks wonderful!!!
WOW the interfacing & fusiable fleece look’s easy to use, & if it makes the bag stand up Even better!! Thank you for sharing. I always enjoy seeing Lazy girl bag’s & the tips they give.
Love the Lazies!! Thank you for all of your work to make the rest of our lives lazier!
I love the mini Miranda you have pictured. It is beautiful. I have made several of the full size Miranda bags but never a mini. Can’t wait to try the new interfacing.
Who can’t use another bag? And this one looks like a winner!
I love Lazy Girl interfacing. The Mini Miranda is wonderful and I would love to give one to my granddaughter Miranda.
I will definitely have to try this is the next Lazy bag that I made. Thanks for sharing and I love your products.
Love the pattern and yor instructions are so clear and easy to follow, as always. Thanks for sharing you expertise.
I’m obsessed with the Miranda and Mini Miranda handbags! Many ladies in my quilt group made them after they saw mine. I love picking out fabrics and color schemes to make them look totally different. I have not had the opportunity to use the Sew Lazy Interfacing yet, but can’t wait try it on my next one.
love all of your bags, I´m sewing Margo Handbag now and I would love to do the Mini Miranda.
Your instructions are very well written…the closeup shots are very helpful to a first timer making your handbags. Would love to try the Sew Lazy interfacings!
Love the Mi Miranda bag. Anxious to try the new interfacings you have now too, I do love for the bags to stand right.
I absoultely love the Mini Miranda bag in the Joel Dewberry fabrics. I’m anxious to try the Sew Lazy Interfacing. I’m heading to my LQS today to see if she will order it. I especially appreciate your clear photos and steps. They make me feel like a sewing pro!
Like the look of this bag and your colour is brilliant. Don’t know if we can get these interfacings in the UK. Was at a quilting show the other week and couldn’t see anything like them.
LOVE the Miranda…..
Can’t wait to get my hands on the new products. I teach bag classes and your designs are a favorite!
Just made the Miranda. Wow, what a nice bag. Made it for my sister-in-law so can’t wait to make one for me! Also, can’t wait to try the Mini, plus all your new interfacings.
Can’t wait to try your interfacings! They’ll be the perfect unseen heroes in the bags!
I’m a newbie to Lazy Girl Designs. What peaked my interest from everything I’ve read in regards to the patterns and the videos I’ve watched, the patterns are NOT complicated! This convinced me to place my first order as of yesterday. I debated between the Gracie and Miranda and finally had to rely on a coin toss and ended up purchasing the Gracie. It was AFTER the purchase, I seen the special in regards to the stiff stuff interfacing. 🙁 I would so love to add the mini Miranda to my future new collection of Lazy Girl handbags. 🙂

This is one of my favorite bag designs!!
ohhh, I need that and the stiff stuff, FINALLY, no more droopy bags!
I love the idea of ” stand-up-i-tude”! I enjoy making bags… but I get frustrated when they don’t retain their shape. This looks like a great solution that I’m going to need to play with! 🙂
That Miranda bag is so sweet.
I love my Miranda Purse and can’t wait to make a MIni Miranda purse!! I have been in the baby quilt production mode lately and now I am anxious to get back to making purses and to try the new interfacing!
I love the mini miranda bag and would love to try your new interfacings!
Since I’ve loved all the Lazy Girl patterns I’ve used so far, I’m sure I would love your new interfacing. Your Miranda bag is very pretty. Thank you!
Love the size of the mini Miranda!
That bag is really cute. I love the simplicity, but it could be fun, too. I’m looking forward to trying the new interfacing, too. Thanks!
I really like the mini Miranda. Hope to win. Thanks
Love your patterns – the instructions are easy to follow and the pictures are a tremendous help when making your bags!
I love the Mini Miranda Bag and I love how lazy they go together. I’m hoping to have time in the next few weeks to try your new interfacings.
I love all your patterns and have made several of your various bags for myself and gifts. Look forward to trying your new interfacing products!
I love your bags! Also need (want this pattern). I am going to order some Stiff Stuff for my next bag. This Mine Meranda bag is just the perfect size for me!
The new interfacing looks like a great product, and I love the bag!
I love the regular sized Miranda, and have been thinking about the mini version for some time. The new interfacing looks really interesting!
I have the miranda bag pattern and would love to have the mini one also.
I haven’t made the mini Miranda yet, but hope to do so soon. Have ordered the new Stiff-stuff and one of the interfacings & the fllece. Just waiting for the mail.
Mini Miranda is cute. I need to look for those products in the UK as thye’re new to me.

Am really anxious to try the new products that you have offered. I love your patterns, so easy to follow and look wonderful when finished. Thank you!!!
Love the pattern! Have made several bags in the past & would like to try this one – looks like fun!!
I have made several Miranda bags and am eager to make this one. I have been saving purple/lime green tapestry and lime green lining to make a special bag and this is the one!
I can’t wait to try this interfacing. I had a hard time putting the zipper in a purse until I saw Joan on a sewing program. Thanks so much Ruby
What a cute little Bag. Goes so well with the Mama Miranda. I’ll have to get that one too!
I would love the pattern and try the new supplies. Have already been thinking about what bag I want to make next.
All I’ve ever made are quilts but when I see your bags, it makes me want to start making them as well….I really like the mini miranda!
I love the new interfacing. Can’t wait to try them
This is an awesome bag! Beautiful fabric selection too! I have a large fabric stash that is just waiting for a project like this. I’d love to win this pattern and try the fusible fleece and the face-it fusible interfacing.
Oh I love the Mini Miranda! Another Lazy I will need to be making.
I have the stiff stuff on order. I am so anxious to try it. I love your bages. The instructions are so easy to follow.
I love both the Mini Miranda handbag pattern and would love to try the Stiff Stuff Interfacing. What a great giveaway!!!
Thank you for the construction pics. Very helpful, especially for a visual learner like me. Cute, cute, cute handbag! I’d love to have one.
Luv the Mirandas!!! Mini is so right for everything.
The Mini Miranda bag is so cute! The Sew Lazy Interfacing looks interesting. I’d love to try it out.
LOVE the Mini Miranda!!!!
Have made 3 of these bags. I am a lazy girl.
I have three of your Lazy Girl patterns that I just love and the Mini Miranda is next on my list! The interfacing looks great and I can’t wait to try it. Thanks!!!
Awesome bag! Can’t wait to try Stiff Stuff Interfacing!
Great ideas – I love your blogs
I love making Lazy Girl Bags!!!
Your interfacing products are most welcome. It has been so difficult to find products that really worked for bag construction. Great bag and fabrics too.
Love the idea of fusible fleece and the miranda bags are great.
I love your patterns–they do not confuse me & so are therefore easier to make than alot of other bags. I look forward to using your interfacings.
I love to try new interfacings, I can’t wait to get my hands it! Hopefully, my LQS will hook me up. Love the Mini Miranda!
This is JUST what I was looking for. Perfect bag to make for my daughter for her birthday.
And the Sew Lazy looks like a great product, thanks.
yet ANOTHER lazy girl pattern I have to have! Beautiful!
ooooo! One of your bags I haven’t done yet! Would love to try it and the new interfacing, Totally adorable.
Can’t wait to make another Miranda with the new interfacing “stuff”!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh I have that fabric and would love to make this gorgeous bag!!
What a perfect match of the interfacing and the Miranda bag. Hope to win and make a fall colors bag.
Ooooooo – pick me, pick me!!!! I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win this!
I love this purse! Amazing pattern and material! Thanks for sharing all your “stuff”!
Love the bag! I can’t find the Lazy interfacing here in Orlando yet. Just waiting for it have a couple more bag patterns from you I have to sew…
Nice bag!! Looking forward to trying the new stiff stuff interfacing.
This looks easy! I’ve been wanting to try making a purse and Minni Miranda looks like I could accomplish it, and the interfacing looks easy to work with too. Here’s hoping I’m luck and will have a project soon. thanks
Love the size of the Mini Miranda bag and the new products look like they make a beautiful finished project. They would be fun to try!
Love your tutorial for this charming bag – haven’t used this interfacing yet, but plan to soon.
Cute purse. Looks like it is pretty easy to make up.
Oh, I like Miranda Bags and will use the Sew Easy Interfaction . My favoriter quilt shop has me on a waiting list and I have ordered a Miranda Mini Bag pattern. Thank you for your creative ideas that help me so much..
Would love to try your new interfacing products . . . and Mini-Miranda would be the perfect “test” project!
I’m with the others, I haven’t tried kthe new stuff YET but the Miranda bag would be a perfect one to try it on! Thank you for all the new (more descriptive) options.
Joan so happy about the new interfacing options.
I love the mini Miranda! I just made one and re-configured the pockets to make a water bottle holder via your wonderful tutorial. I would love to try your new interfacing products, I haven’t been terribly happy with what has been available from other manufacturers so far and am so happy that you have jumped in with a great product!
Another Lazy Girl Bag that looks perfect. Your patterns are always done with such detail and so easy to use. I’d love to win your generous drawings. Jane
I’ve made several LGD bags and would love to make the Mini Miranda. It’s stylish and practical. I’d love to get a chance to use the new LGD interfacing as well. Thanks, Joan, for always inspiring us!
What a lovely bag, and a perfect size too!
I have followed “Lazy Girl” for a few years now, and saved as much info as I could – now that I have full access to my machine – I can make beautiful gifts for my family; and I can make the things that I long wanted to have as part of my home! With the holidays around the corner – I will be happily busy at my machine. Thank you for being the creative muse that you are – for me and I know for countless others!
Mini Miranda is for the “lazy lady” kind of life I live! Something that everything will fit in and just sling it over the shoulder and go, go, go, but go slow cause I’m lazy too.
I love the size of the mini Miranda! I enjoy sewing bags but my one complaint is the fact that they don’t have enough body! With the new interfacing products I’m anxious to try them in a new bag!
I love both of the Miranda bags – they look like fun! I was hoping the smaller one would work to tote my tablet when I don’t want to carry the bigger one 🙂
I love your bags and wallets! Have made over 300 of your wonder wallets for the Shriner’s Hospital in Chicago for the children who stay there. They love them! Just ordered 4 of your bag patterns, but missed seeing the Mini Miranda. Would absolutely love to win this! Thanks so much for your amazing creativity!
What a PERFECT bag this would be for teens that need various bags to go with their outfits. You could make different ones to fit their needs.
Your instructions and pics are ALWAYS the best. Can’t wait to try the new interfacing.
Love the bag! I hope the new interfacing is at my LQS.
I am making my third Lazy Girl purse and I love them! Can’t wait to try the new products.
Love the big Miranda would love to try the mini!
I’ll be checking at my LQS for your new interfacings, Joan. I have several LG patterns that I’d love to try them on. Don’t have the mini-Miranda pattern but would it has been on my list of the ones I’m missing. SO glad you came up with these interfacings!
I LOVE all your bags! Can’t wait to try out the new interfacing. I’ve realized THAT makes all the difference. Aloha!
The mini miranda is adorable!!! I love your designs! Always excited to see the next one! Thank you.
Love seeing all your bags. Your patterns are very well written & I’ve enjoyed making many.
Several years ago my DD asked me to design a tote for her to carry to writer’s conference.
I am known for the totes that I make.
I was feeling uninspired when I found your site and the Summer Tote. My creativity re-awakened.
That bag was a hit with Melissa and with your readers.
Since then I have made many different Lazy Bags. It is so hard to get all of the materials here in La Paz, so I must try to get everything in my annual shopping trip north.
So to win some Sew Lazy fusibles and a pattern would fill me with joy!
I’ve been wanting to try to make myself a handbag and Mini Miranda looks perfect! Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy of the pattern.
Thanks for being so generous. Love your great sewing and product ideas.
Love the color of the Mimi Miranda bag. Love the bag too.
I would love to win the Mini Miranda bag and I would especially like to try your new Sew Lazy interfacing.
Will try the Stiff Stuff Firm Sew In interfacing on my next project. Love the purse.
Can’t wait to try the new interfacing. I have made several of your purses. You gave good instructions on how to put in a zipper. Thanks Ruby
The Mini Miranda is the next pattern on my I want list. Just finished the Chelsea bag. The new interfacings look interesting. Can’t wait to give them a try in my next bag. Here’s crossing my fingers that my local shop will carry it.
Can’t wait to try the new interfacings! Thanks for keeping up the inspiration.
I suggested to an online ship that I deal with that she carry all the new sew lazy interfacings and she has it all. I just ordered from her yesterday and it is on the way.
The shop is “overtherainbow” in Washington State
Love your Miranda Mini. Just the right size and shape. Haven’t used your products but would love to start by making the Miranda Mini.
I always look forward to Monday when you have the best new techniques! This tut really improves the stability of the bag. I have used your patterns and they are the BEST!!!!! Thanks!
Love the simplicity of the lines–sets of the fabric pattern beautifully.
Love the Mini Miranda. I would give it to my 15 DGD Miranda 🙂
Very nice!! I can’t wait to try the interfacing!
Love love love your bags. I have made many of them, but never the Miranda…and I want to!!!! Thank you for the opportunity to win the pattern.
Love your patterns and would love to make the mini Miranda and try out the new interfacing!
I have been talking up your sew lazy interfacings to my local quilt shop. I hope they carry it soooooooooooooooooooooooon!!
I have two of your bag patterns, haven’t made them yet. Maybe that is a good thing, as now I can try your new interfacing. Will definitely get some before I start on the bags.
Love the bags! Interfacing sounds good.
I follow you on facebook.
I love making purses and this one is really cute. Love the design!! I look forward to new interfacing because it is difficult to find ones that make a purse come out nice!
Just used your new Stiff Stuff in a tote and really love it!! All your patterns are easy to understand with excellent pictures of how to construct them. Thanks for making the Buckeye State proud!!
Gorgeous. I love your patterns and can’t wait to try the interfacings.
I love the bag, your choice of colours make it look so much better than mine, I would love to get some of your interfaceing etc.
I’m anxious to try this new “Stiff Stuff” in a new bag. Looks like it will work up nice!
This bag is so pretty. I have not yet tried to make one of your bags, but this may convince me to do so. It sounds easy enough.
I am so excited by the Sew Lazy Interfacings! I have ordered 3 yards of the Fusi-Bond Lite from Sew Thankful. I am planning a Silk quilt, and want the Fusi-Bond Lite to help stabilize the silk. And it was on sale, too! Would love to win the giveaway. Thanks, Joan
One of my pet peeves are purses without body. I want my purses and bags to be crisp and be able to retain their shape. (Unless of course, that’s not how they were designed.)Your new product Stiff Stuff seems to be the cat’s (stiff) pajamas. Can’t wait to try some. Congratulations again for producing something new that really has tremendous potential .
just started making bags, would love to try this one.
That bag is the size I prefer and so do my shoulders. Anxious to try the interfacings.
I have the larger bag pattern but I have yet to make it. I have made other bags from Lazy girl and have had loads of compliments on everyone of them. I think making this bag with the extra fusing will make me a very happy camper. I do not like slouchy bags! Thanks for this opportunity to try it out.
Have loved your patterns for years. Can’t wait to try the new interfacing ideas!
Thank you so much for the tutorial. I need to make this bag!
Fabulous- fantastic bag!!
The interfacing is so tempting .. but I’ve always wanted a really great bag pattern like yours.
Thanks for the opportunity.
Mini-Miranda LOVE–constructed with Stiff Stuff & Joel Dewberry is not only “dreamy, scrumptious, & yum,” but also oh-so-PERKY! And top-stitched all over–just BEAUTIFUL!
Thank you for the chance to win.
The mini looks great, but how could it not, you designed it.
Love the stiff stuff too.
Cheers, Cindy Aus.
Hope your number generator has a lot of numbers. Took forever to get to the comment section. I am very excited about your new interfacings and stiffeners, they sound wonderful. I have fabric waiting to do a Miranda, just not enough time.
HELLO! Love this bag! thanks for all your hints in its construction!
I know I will like using ‘Stiff Stuff’! Thank you for a fun giveaway!
Hey! I still love your designs and they are the easiest ever! You get a big bang for your buck! I can’t wait to try your new interfacings and such!
Thanks for keeping it Lazy!
love that bag thanks
Have made gifts from almost allyour patterns and it looks like my granddaughters will have Mini Miranda on their lists this year.
I hardly know where to begin. I’ve been a subscriber for a while, I own a few of your other bag patterns and love them. They’re simple to follow along and make me look like I have talent even though I’m barely a novice! The Miranda bag (and now the Mini Miranda) is a pattern I’m in love with for a very different reason. Last September my 6th child, Miranda Gloria, was born. She went into distress at birth and required life support. She passed away 28 days later. We’re just now getting plans together for marking what would be her birthday in a way that honors her and how special she was. I know there is no way you could ever know all this but I just wanted to tell you that for a baby-loss mom seeing my daughter’s name is a blessing, so when your emails come through for the Miranda bags I smile and my heart feels hugged.
I have been thinking about sewing bags, but I’ve been intimidated. This set might be perfect to get me started.
I love this bag! Can’t wait to try one.
That is such a cute bag. I love your patterns in general. You have good directions that are easy to follow. I haven’t been to the store yet to see if I can find the interfacing locally. Looking forward to trying it out eventually.
I Love this bag! I can’t wait to try making one.
Love the Mini Miranda. Size looks good and colours just perfect. We are now in spring and I really need motivation to get back into sewing. Thank you for all your designs.
I love that you have expanded your horizons by giving us interfacing that says what it does and does what it says! I also really appreciate your patterns that are easy to understand and use.
I love the great pics of the steps to using those great new fleeces and interfacing. I look forward to making a few bags of my very own!
I’d love to try the Mini Miranda, she looks like the perfect size. Thanks for the giveaway.
The Mini Miranda pattern is very lovely and I wish that whom ever is chosen enjoys this fun and easy pattern. Thanks for the opportunity.
Love the colors on the mini! Can’t wait to use the new interfacing!
I like the tutorial on the Mini Miranda and the interfacing. It looks like I will have to get the pattern and make it up. Thanks for another fun contest.
Love the colors on this mini! Can’t wait to try the new interfacing!
Can’t wait to try the new interfacing! Love the colors on this mini!
I LOVE your patterns. This looks like a purse that I would make immediately. Hope I win
Love the way the mini Miranda looks, if i win would make this for my sister-in-law for Christmas.
How brilliant, to have interfacings etc designed by someone who sews bags and knows what we want.
Go Mini Miranda Go
I adore it, the mini tute is really helpful, makes it look easier to make on our own as well. I cant afford this pattern but the bag looks as if a neat person could make it and carry it all around. I really do like it a lot. heck I like all your bag patterns
The mini Miranda bag looks like the perfect size to bring home papers to grade. Love it!
Mini Miranda looks like she’s just the right size, and so perky, the way she stands up nicely.
I love the lazy girl bags and now we will have the perfect stuff to make them stand up right-Yea!! Thank you for the wonderful instructions, having pictures to follow is really great.
Love all your bags and your blog! Very helpful. I’m a big Wonder Wallet fan too!
I like the size of the miniMiranda! Iwill be glad to have a choice of interfacing products as they are limnited now. I love making purses!
Joan, Don’t have Mini Miranda but it looks like the PURRFECT size for an everyday bag! Could the top be altered to accept a zipper? Now that Fall is here, it’s time to dust off the sewing machine and get busy!! Got my fingers crossed that MM finds her way to my sewing room!! Thanks for the opportunity!
Want it! Want it! Want it! Would really like to try the new interfacings.
I love making the Miranda bag and have received many compliments on them but I only have that pattern and would really like to try the mini size.
I have already ordered the newStiff Stuff interfacing! I’m looking forward to using it on the mini Miranda bag.
I love the look of the mini Miranda! I have the full sized pattern and have made it at least three times. Plus, the construction techniques are so well explained that my experience with your pattern has helped me to make other bags and even to help other quilters figure out their patterns!
Thanks for the contest,
Hope I’m the lucky Lazy because I’d love to make the Mini-Miranda!
I love my Mini Miranda, but I think she needs a new twin sister. 😉
I love all your patterns. I am looking forward to trying your new line of products.
I Love Lazy girl designs and Mini Miranda is no exception !
I would love to make her …and try the new interfacing.

One of your fans here….. Love the new stuff, can’t wait to get the Stiff Stuff we ordered. This looks like a great way to use it. Thanks for the explanation of the difference it makes from the Dreamy fleece. Would LOVE to win. Thanks for the chance.
Love those Lazy Girl bags! Can’t wait to get my hands on the new sew lazy girl line of battings and stabilizers.
cloth purses are the best & fun to make. No long term projects to put into time out.
I am so excited about your new line of interfacings and fleece and can’t wait to get my hands on some! Your Mini Miranda bag is a great size and looks absolutely fabulous with your new “innards” *Ü*

Love this bag! It looks like the perfect size!
Would love to win the mini Miranda bag pattern and the new interfacing. I have been waiting for a local shop to get some in. Thanks for your instructions.
I’m new to the bag making, but love your bag patterns and can’t wait to try the new interfacings. I’ve never had a lot of luck with the Peltex — a little too stiff and thick and have discouraged me from making more bags. Love your demonstrations. You make it look so easy.
Woukld love to win the pattern.
love your bags and love watching your tutorials
The mini miranda is absolutely adorable and I can wait to make it.
Thank you for all of your wonderful designs.

I haven’t made the Mini-Miranda, but I have made the Miranda several times. I’d love to try the new interfacing. Thanks for the chance to win.

I love your patterns and Mini Miranda is one I don’t yet have. I am looking forward to trying your new interfacing products!
Love your patterns. You make everything look so easy. Anxious to try the new interfacing!

Bless you for all the hand bags you have designed. The Mini-Miranda bag is the correct size for a smaller bag. The heavy interfacing will be a great asset to my sewing supplies. Keep up the great work!!!

Have already ordered some interfacings. Cannot wait to get them
Very Nice, as usual looks easy, and is a nice size.
This is such a perfect size and shape to help (Ha!) get me organized. I am a purse finatic and just have to have this. Love being able to choose my own colors. The new stiffening sounds like it will be super nice for helping to keep it’s shape and good look. Thanks for all the lovely ideas!
Love that bag and the instructions. Also a big thank you to your informative blog. I am now waiting on some stiff stuff. Can’t wait to try it.

Mini Miranda is soooooooo cute! I would love to make one for my boss as a boss’s day’s gift!!
Mini Miranda is beautiful!
I think Mini Miranda is lovely and cute.
I have made a few of your bags and now I think I need to make the Mini Miranda!
I love how straight and proud the mini Miranda stands.
Can see it now in lovely summer florals. Perfect.
I love this bag. I was kind of scared of it before but that is only because until recently, I had not tried to make purses. now that is about all that I make these days. I would love to received this pattern. I have the regular Miranda day bag that I am going to make for my son’s girlfriend to use to carry her laptop to class in.
Very nice! I can definitely see this in my future to make for my daughter!
I recently made a carrying case for all my quilting tools so that I could take it to classes. But I had so much trouble with the Deco Bond. I was very discouraged to try anymore projects. I am so excited to hear about your interfacing. I’m hoping it will get me back in the spirit of making purses!!
I love the Mini Miranda and it looks like an easy one for me to start on!!
Love the bag, its a great size, just my style
Excited to make this bag!
I love your new stiff interfacing. Can’t wait to try it.
I love your bags and the Mini Miranda is lovely too
I’ve been using an iron on interfacing and after a few washes it just pulls away from the fabric. I’d love to use your interfacing and make a Mini Miranda Bag for my girls as Christmas presents.
Miranda is in my to do list because I adore it,it can stand on its own.interfacing? I have yet to try it.thank you for the giveaway
I can’t wait to try your new line of interfacings, they sound like they are just the ticket to get the attitude you want them to have!!
The Mini Miranda is so cute can’t wait to try some colorful bags.
This looks nice and easy…I intend to try it…
Wow, I love the Mini Miranda. I’m very impressed with your new Stiff Stuff Firm Sew-in-interfacing and look forward to using it.
I absolutely love my Miranda Day Bag! I would love to get the Mini Miranda and try your new interfacings. Your patterns always come out so professional looking! Thanks for the chance to win.
I love the lazy girl designs and the mini miranda looks fabulous. Goodl uck to whomever wins.
I’d sure love to win this pattern and get a chance to try out your new interfacing in it. Looks great with it’s “stand up straight” attitude.
I am a “bag-lady” and love, love your patterns, supplies, and blog.
Love, love the mini Miranda, great job!
Looking forward to using your new line of interfacing for some Lazy Girl bags.
Love the bag, tutorial, and the interfacing! Thank you so much for sharing!
The mini Miranda is absolutely adorable!! Love the color combos!
The Mini Miranda is adorable! I’m just starting to dabble in making bags and the whole world of interfacing seems to have quite the learning curve. I haven’t used your line yet, but the names are much more descriptive of the job they accomplish and I like that.
Having taught almost all of Lazy Girl’s Bag patterns in classes, I can honestly say that they, including Mini Miranda, are great patterns to make and use. My favorite, to date mind you, is Candice – I’ve made her in four different fabrics. But MM might just move ahead to first place. We’ll have to wait and see!
Love this site. Love the pattern. Hope to learn more from the ideas. It spells FUN!!!
I love Joan’s patterns and can’t wait for my dealer to get in her stablizers. My friend made a mini Miranda several years ago and it is her favorite bag. I’m jealous!
Simply beautiful! I must have this pattern and interfacing!
Cute pattern, would love to try the so lazy interfacing… have not seen it anywhere yet.
I lvoe the lazy girl designs! Love the bags… I would love to try the new interfacing…soon very soon!
I’d love to give this product a try! I always need another cute bag!
i love your bags and the mini miranda is darling … i’m so wanting to try the new interfacing; i make bags and this sounds like it’s going to be perfect … thanks for the opportunity ….. darlene
I could use lots of Mini Miranda bags… one for each activity I go to. Like a lovely, soft file cabinet for the things I need to take with me!!!
I LOVE ALL YOUR PATTERNS AND THE MINI MIRANDA IS JUST SO CUTE AND EASY TO MAKE.
THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO.
I love the new bag – you’ve done a superb job as always. Can’t wait to try out the new interfacing!
I just love this new pattern. I love to work with your patterns because they are well written and very easy to follow. Please keep the designs coming.
I’m so excited about the mini-Miranda. I’m 4’11” and 100 pounder, so only a few of the bag patterns are small enough for me to carry. I’ve made the larger ones and feel like a little girl carrying her mother’s bag. Thank you so much.
Your patterns are always so user friendly! I love that! I’ll be ordering some Sew Lazy interfacing very soon – need to see how much I actually need to order – I’m working on Christmas gifts!! Would love to win this combo – the Mini Miranda bag is one of the few patterns that I don’t have.
I’ve made the Mini-Miranda twice before. It’s so easy and functional! Beautiful! I’d love to do it again with the new interfacing. Hope I win.
I love your bag patterns and the Mini Miranda looks perfect. I hope we get your new interfacings soon, I’m in Canada, I can’t wait to try them 🙂
Oh my my, I must order these new items for my shop. Love the ease of knowing what each product will do for my project, as well as, how to care for it. My customers are going to love these new Lazy products, planning with fabric until my distributor ships it to me.
Nice to see there is some new kind of interfacing. Would like to try it! Please pick me!!!!!
Your patterns are the best to follow and I love the photos and tips you include. I can not wait to try your new interfacing. Best of Luck with the Line.
I have several of your patterns and enjoy the simple and easy instructions.Using a stiffer facing makes the project look more professional. Thanks
Thrilled that you’ve developed your own line of interfacings…. looking forward to using them.
Wow, am so glad that I haven’t found the time to make the mini Miranda out of the fabrics I have chosen for it and in a project bag with the pattern. Now I can order the lazy interfacings and make it your new way for a Stand Up grand purse. Thanks for the opportunity to win the kit stuff.
The Mini Miranda is a great purse. I’m looking forward to making one. Your new interfacing seems to be a hit,. I can’t wait to try it!!
I love your patterns. They are so well written and easy to follow. Mini is a wonderful size. Thank you for explaining the interfacings that make a bag really stand up and be firm. I have a quilt club meeting tonight and will be asking for the shop owner to order your interfacings. Thank you for sharing your creative materials.
That Joel Dewberry fabric pops! Those colors and the quilting really show off the Mini Maranda pattern. I would love to try doing the panels like that. Looking forward to using the fusible fleece interfacing and trying to quilt my panels. Would really love to win the pattern!
I like this mini miranda as prefer mid-sized purses.
I like the look of both the purse and how the interfacing makes ir so “crisp” looking. Can’t wait to try!
Love how the bag comes togeather. I am looking for to using the interfacings.
Can’t wait to try the new interfacing. It looks great. The mini Miranda looks like a perfect size.
Beautiful bag – I love the fabrics. Keep up the good work.
I’m really looking forward to trying your interfacings, and I love the bag: gorgeous!!
Thanks for the giveaway!
I’m a little scared of interfacing, as I’ve never used it before. I need a pattern to tell me how to do so! That and I need a new bag, just like this!! Thanks for the giveaway!
Just before I came to the Lazy blog I looked at some hanbags that cost over $100. With Joan’s patterns I can make something unique for myself and have more than one over-priced purse.
I want to say that I just love the fabric so much!
Thanks so much for this blog! the bag is so easy to make! I want to win it cause it is cute! Tahnks
If I learn to make this bag myself, it would be an awesome gift to my friends and family for the holidays coming up.
I have been staring at the picture forever! This tote is too cute! God bless!
Sew easy interfacing along with the Mini Miranda would be a great prize!
I love the Miranda bag! especially made up in Joel Dewberry fabrics!
The Mini Miranda bag is adorable. I would love to have this pattern. Thanks for giveaway!
Oh thank you for the detailed explanation of the lovely bag! And for the give-a-way! Keep up the wonderful, professional products – denise/deBrat in FL
Joan – I haven’t tried a Mini Miranda yet but I am confident that with your “lazy” instructions I will be able to master yet another of your patterns.
Thank you for being a Lazy Girl.
Please enter me in the giveaway. Thanks!
The Mini Miranda Bag was the first real “bag” I made and the instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I love the final result, but my interfacing was not stiff enough, so my bag does not stand up straight. 🙁 I would love to try some of your stiff stuff.
Great patterns, easy to follow. Fantastic designs.
I love the mini-Miranda, it’s so cute!! It looks like a great size to make for Christmas gifts.
I´m gonna make one for myself to have on my holiday in Spain this christmas!
Lot of hugs from Sweden. /Malin
I am new to bagmaking and just came across your page. That bag is just so stinking CUTE! Love it!
Though I haven’t had the opportunity to use the Stiff Stuff, I do love the bags! Every one I make gets raves, and I do manage to use some sort of stiffener, but the right stuff would be nice~
Any bag looks great when properly made. And—the instructions are always so neat and easy to follow, with professional looking results—every time.
Love Miranda. She looks to be just the right size. I love to make all sorts of bags and am always looking for new materials to try.
I love the big Miranda, and a mini would be perfect! I’m excited to try out the Stiff Stuff, and am placing my order this weekend. Thanks for the great products!
LOVE all your patterns, this is 1 I need to add to my collection! Would love to try your new interfacing as well! Thanks so much for the giveaway opportunity 🙂
The Miranda purse it PERFECT in every way! Will certainly be making it for friends and myself. Very much looking forward to purchasing Stiff Stuff! Keep giving us such great `Fun-Projects’!
I love how easy and versitile your patterns are and hope you choose my name to win!
I’m keeping my eyes peeled for the new interfacings during my travels. It helps to have something to search for when I wander into a shop on vacation. I think Mini Miranda will be a perfect size for special outings when I don’t need a big tote.
The mini Miranda looks like the perfect size for me.
I would love to try one of your patterns, especially mini Miranda!
Thank you, Joan, for sharing your talents with us! Love your patterns.
Love your bags! I need to hit up my LQS to see if they have your interfacing!
I love your patterns-teach classes using them!
Love the Mini Miranda pattern and look forward to trying the new interfacing. Thanks!
I just love your mini miranda pattern….in fact, all your purse patterns are great….I would love to win a free purse pattern…thanks…
Can’t wait to get my hands on this pattern and try this interfacings. My 3 sisters, 4 nieces, and 2 daughters keep me sewing purses and I always looking for a new purse shape and size.
wow, cool bag, perfect for my upcoming 50th b-day cruise in Jan….woo-hoo!!! love lazy girl!
Mini Miranda is so cute. I haven’t been making purses lately, I might just have to try it again!
I love the purse. I have purchase and made Lazy Girl bags. I just love them!
Love, love love this pattern, along with all of your other patterns! It is stunning!
I love the mini-miranda! I haven’t sewn in awhile, but this would give me a great idea of what to start with.
This would be a very nice package to win, indeed! I have not seen the Sew Lazy Interfacing at any of the local shops, and would welcome the opportunity to work with it. I’ve done a few other Lazy Girl patterns and loved every one of them –so have the recipients of these gifts! The Miranda Day bag is wonderful, but a bit big for me, but the Mini Miranda looks to be nearly perfect. I could fit my wallet, a few essentials, my pre-schooler’s small toy & cup, as well as my planner and Nook in there! Trying to find stylish, perfect-fit bags was the whole reason I got into making them.
Can’t wait to try your new interfacing!!! I would love the mini Miranda bag, so cute!
I think the new interfacings sound fabulous! I always have trouble remembering which one I use and feel like I might be buying the wrong one half the time I go to the store. Really great addition to your line.
I made the full sized Miranda bag and I just love it. I think the mini would be great too. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
Would love the opportunity to try your new products. Thank you.
Love ’em all! Keep up the good work. I enjoy the eye candy and the inspiration your posts provide.
Admire this Miranda pattern, and such clear directions. I am also longing to try the new interfacing!
I love your mini Miranda pattern. Allot of my favorite purse patterns are from you!! Thanks
Love the Mini Miranda!!
That looks like a perfect size. Not too large, not too small, just right.!!! Love it.
Love the pattern & interfacing! I can’t wait to try it. I like making quilts but totes & purses are my favorite
I love bags and I am always looking for patterns. I would love to make this bag, to donate as a raffle prize, and of course for gifts… Love it.
Love the mini Miranda. Would be great to be a winner
I love the Mini Miranda, especially those colors of blue and orange!
Mini Miranda looks perfect! Love the way it lets the fabric ‘speak’. I will have to try Face-It Firm interfacing.
I have made more mini Miranda’s than any other pattern I have. I can’t wait to try the new interfacings.
I can’t wait to try the new Sew Lazy products! I’m sure they’ll make your fabulous bags even more fabulous-er 🙂
I never thought about sutting the outer seam edges at an angle–so smart!! Thanks for the ides!
I never thought about cutting the outer seam edges at an angle–so smart!! Thanks for the ides!
First off I love orange and blue. This is an awesome find. I havent made alot of purses but in the process learning and collecting patterns and ideas. it sounds like I need to try this interfacing..
I think I have all your bag patterns. Can’t wait to try the new Sew Lazy interfacing.
Love the bag. Great photos of the fleece.
Love the bags. What a wonderful interfacing. How well would it work for book cover?
I am about to make my family some bible bookcovers.
Wow, can’t wait to start using your new interfacings. Love all your purse patterns and have made almost every one at least once!
I just love your mini miranda bag….i would love to win the pattern and interfacing to make one…thanks.
I love your patterns! They are so easy to make, but they look like you spent hours and hours working on them.
I know I late for the give away I was out of town. But still wanted you to know that I really like that bag that you featured and this great tutorial on the Sew Lazy Interfacing that is right my ally with a full house hold, farm to run and now a new business. I also love the colors and pattern you choose to show in the picture of The Miranda Bag. I just got one of your patterns that is the knapsack purse and cannot wait to make it.
Love your bags and the time you’ve taken to design them. I can’t wait to make this one.
Perfect size! Don’t have much experience with stiffer interfacing, so am anxious to try!
This is the perfect size to carry my quilting supplies to classes. Can’t wait to make it mine!
I love the Miranda – the pattern, the fabric, and the interfacing. Actually I would love to be able to say, “I MADE IT!”. Purses are my favorite thing to make and Lazy Disigns are my favorite patterns. Thanx!
Love Lazy Girl Designs and patterns. I started quilting last year and became enchanted with making handbags. I’ve made several of your patterns and have enjoyed each of them. I love this handbag pattern and look forward to making it. It would be wonderful to try a new interfacing for the bag. The video is great! Thanks for all of your easy to follow patterns that make such nice end designs!
This is a nifty little number~ I have’t ordered it yet, but maybe I’ll get lucky!
Mini Miranda Bag is so awesome! I am definately getting some Dreamy fusible fleece + Face-It Firm for my shopping list! My grand daughters and I want to try and make a handbag for their Mom this Christmas! Your marked on my favorites!
Another great pattern and your Stiff Stuff does a wonderful job of keeping the purse standing up straight. No one wants a floppy, sloppy bag – and this wonderful product does the job you’ve designed it for – I’m sure you must be part engineer!
The Mini Miranda is great. If I can make it, anyone can,. My e-mail is cprayerlady@aollcom

Love your patterns. I have the Margo bag pattern. I have made about 15 of them for other people. I would love to add the Miranda bag pattern to my list of favorites. I love sewing on my days off of work. Thanks for creating great purses.
What a darling lazy bag! I love the soft yet structured look and the casual and classy look!
Love this bag so !!

Love the bag and I’d love to try those new interfacings!
Love the bag! Would make a great gift !
I would love to win the giveaway. I have some of the “Lazy” patterns. They sew up so nicely!
So cute, I love your bag patterns!
I have been making purses for years as my have on hand “gifts”. These are mostly gifts to myself as I recieve so much pleasure in making them. I decided long ago , that I only use Lazy Girl designs. Your instructions and pictures are flawless. There are some stunning designs out there, but being a designer has nothing to do with selling a pattern that is a nightmare to produce. I have a ton of those from old, which I think I will use the paper for art projects. Keep on designing..your work is great!
I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing issues with your website.
It looks like some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me
know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve
had this happen before. Cheers
I make purses every year as gifts and have never tried the fusible fleece or face it firm. I love this pattern, suggestions and love the website! My first time here.
Love the orange and blue on this bag. Thank you for the pattern.
G”day from sunny Western Australia – Just received a metre of Stiff Stuff in the mail from USA- can’t wait to use it and tell my sewing group about it. Would love to make a mini Miranda bag with Stiff Stuff to show off with.
I love all the Lazy Girl interfacing and fleece, my last 2 bags turned out greet!
