Hi there!
First off let me say thanks for plugging my site  Wink

I'll try to help you with that shape. I make all my own patterns for my bags. The a-line is really simple, just draw out a triangle and cut off the top. I usually use bristol board for my patterns.
Good luck let me know if you have any other questions.

Well Debzy,
Thank you. I guess you could say I'm a aging "riot girl" and I used to really be into Bikini Kill. There's a song with a line in it I've always liked "star belly boy different from the rest....." And since the star is on the "belly" of the bag I named it that! Wink
I've also named some of my other bags/accessories after Morrissey songs. I'm kinda nerdish like that!

I think it's absolutely commendable to use Morrissey for inspiration....uh oh, we may be showing the generation gap I think...

Nope, Bikini Kill broke up some time ago. Kathleen Hanna moved on to better things. Shes done the Julie Ruin Project and Le Tigre-both are definitely worth checking out! Grin
