`I to love the shape of these bags.  Do you sell the patterns or have you ever posted the patterns for others to use?  I'd love to try out the guitar bag... Smiley

Also, for the one asking how you sew with a toddler?  Teach, teach, teach...I have 3 kids, 5 and under. I started sewing when I was expecting the 2nd.  I can't keep them out of my sewing room because my sewing room is one and the same with their playroom, so I taught them not to touch my machine (dangerous you know)...and I pull out toys, playdough...different things to occupy them.  I'm doing my first craft fair next month, so I'm sewing like crazy every day!!!!!!!  I bought a planner with the hours of the day in it...I schedule my day leaving 45 min in the am and the pm for housework.  I try to take a break each hour to sit and read books with the girls or tickle, tickle, tickle...which they love. Smiley Oh yeah, the 5 year old started kindergarten this year so that helps...sometimes.  Sometimes the 3 year old misses her brother.    Good luck Smiley It's difficult at times, but if you can get into a schedule as was already mentioned, it will really help.

Teaching is a good idea too but as we all know the younger ages tend to listen well in the beginning! Haha in doing a craft show in November and I have been sewing my butt off! Keeping a good schedule works well for me! I like the planner idea too

I saw the thumbnail and was instantly like, "Oh! StellarCheri!" lol. As always, your bags look perfect and professional. Smiley

Wow, your bags are awesome. I love the color combo on the pink/black and white one. I love the shape of the guitar one. You did a fantastic job on these. I wish I could sew a bag and have it come out half as nice as these. Mine end up looking like a walking train wreck. LOL...

Those bags are amazing! Cheesy I love the black and white patterned cloth on the first one, and the pink straps were a really nice touch.
The second one is amazing too, especially the cloth and shape  Roll Eyes I never get to find any amazing cloth like that in stores where I live :| I need to look harder I guess!

Anyways great job and I love your bags!

And here I thought that I was the only one who could look at a thumbnail and go, "StellarCheri made that"!  As always, your work is lovely.  I especially like the black, white and pink tote bag.

I have a 15 month old too.  I find that it's easier to do the prep work (ironing interfacing, tracing and cutting patterns, etc) while he is active, and then sew when he's sleeping.  My sewing table is in the living room (play room) and we have a fairly open foor plan, so there's no good way to keep him out.  I hate sewing while he's playing because that means having to turn my back on him and he's recently discovered the joys of climbing.

I cant say how much I LOVE the pink and black purse! The pink was a great accent color! I was wonderig if the pink was just plain fabric and if your reinforce the handles or is it just fabric.

Oh and i like the shape of the other bag too, great that you designed that yourself!
