I bought this kit in-store this summer. Mike was so kind and let me pick out a custom color combo. I was a bit intimidated to start this project, but once I began I finished it all in just a couple of hours. This was such a fun DIY and relatively simple once you learn the saddle stitch. The leather is beautiful and the finished product looks so polished. I am eager to order some more DIY kits soon!
One suggestion: While I did watch the thread measuring 'how to' video, providing thread measurements for each line of stitching would make this DIY even easier and could possibly prevent frustration of mismeasuring. That being said, there is plenty of thread for this project, so a little mistake won't become a big problem.
We where on a visit to Orcas Island and greatly enjoyed meeting the owners and visiting the shop. They have done a awesome job. Professional and friendly. My wife bought me the kit and I enjoyed the videos and did it! Just like they said! Love the finished product!
Materials were spot-on.
Online instructions were great. Length to cut threads for each stitching would help a bunch. Did I miss them past the first one?
Great end-product. I like how it is all softening with use.
Great size and design.
I gifted our son with this kit for Christmas 2019. He liked the idea but said he's not got the patience to make it himself and asked if I would make it up for him. I made this the following evening after I made my husband's up. Since I'd made one already I didn't need much video support but it is nice to have that as a back up which I needed for one area. I love these kits put together by Mindy and Mike! They're great gifts and everything you need is included in the kit. All you need supply is a pair of scissors, lighter, and a pair of pliers for those peskier areas of thickness to pull your needles through. They also include more than enough waxed stitching thread to complete your kit without running out!
The second kit I purchased to make for my husband for Christmas 2019. I thought he may enjoy putting it together himself. He handed it back asking me to make it for him. I was a wee bit nervous as I've only made the keychain kit up but I figured I'd give it a go. With the video tutorial support I was confident and it worked up beautifully if I may say so myself! The video support provided is great, anyone can make these kits up easily. I was confident I could make the second one up for our son with the greatest of ease.
