Backpacks, Slowly But Surely

I can't believe it was nearly 20 days ago...and I only have 3 backpacks completed. But they all have some parts done. The boring tedious parts like tacking on the straps so they stay when I sew the bottoms with the sides. Or hand sewing the pendants on the flaps.I will say this in my defense...last week was mid-winter break and the boys were home. It's always tougher to get things done when the little guy is allowed free. Free to keep me too occupied with him - and laughing most of the time...so totally worth it!
So, here's the first 3 completed...inside and out...

Now I need to decide if I want to wait until they are all done before I start the 'photo shoot' or try it in batches. It would be a much easier decision if I had enough space for a dedicated spot to take pics. And if the actual shooting & subsequent editing did not suck an entire day (or two) away.

I like the pink one!

And I completely agree about the picture taking. It is such a pain to have to move the light box (cardboard box with frills), lamps, etc to the other room and then back again.
