This is a great kit for anyone with a bit of sewing experience! Adult or child (12 years plus), male or female. A great gift for Christmas, as a stocking filler or just for yourself if you are quite crafty! The leather comes ready cut to size and the templates can be downloaded once you purchase the kit (if you would like to make it again). All the materials are included in the kit. You have the choice of 3 different colours of leather for the bag, tassel & strap (dark brown, grey or camel) and 3 colours for the lining fabric (black, cream or blue), just email me your choices when you order). Each kit comes with downloadable step by step instructions and a detailed video tutorial so you cannot go wrong! The tutorial shows how to use existing leather items like a jacket that you can upcycle so once you have made one with the kit you can use it again and again with other materials. *PLEASE SPECIFY COLOUR CHOICES UPON ORDER* *THIS PROJECT CAN BE SEWN ON A DOMESTIC MACHINE WITH A LEATHER NEEDLE* Please beware these kits are NOT SUITABLE FOR UNDER 12s due to the use of sharp tools.

My designs are mainly influenced by geometric shapes and Art Deco design. I've built up a wide range of skills and now have the luxury of time and space to make my own products and to experiment with techniques and styles. Ultimately though, I love passing on my passion for leather craft to other people by running a series of workshops. I cater for both individuals with 1 to 1 tuition and groups at my Surrey studio or larger groups at other venues so email me if you'd like more information.
