Loved this kit.
Great quality materials, beautiful touches, very clear instructions.
Loved the experience from start to finish.
Lovely communication from the start when I asked for advice on which colour fittings to match the purple leather.
Response from RJ Leather Sewing School:Hi Ceri. Thanks for your kind words. Your bag looks brilliant. You have sewn it beautifully. Love the outfit you made to match. I look forward to hearing from you again. All the best. Rebecca xx
I won the clutch bag kit in an Instagram giveaway and I was amazed at the attention to detail, as it even included a Teflon foot for my sewing machine and all the pieces came pre cut. I made the bag in an afternoon as the instructions were really straightforward to follow. This would be a great gift to give someone who sews.
