Eastsound Bag Kit Learning Bundle in Rustic Wood

$159.00 $159.00

Start your stitching journey with this incredible bundle of four (4) kits - specifically designed to ensure your success!

Eastsound Bag Features

The Eastsound Bag is a bestseller, and for good reason. Designed to perfectly hold your essentials and nothing more. Five (5) card pockets, a dedicated phone pouch and an extra back pocket combine for the perfect daily carry.

The included adjustable strap allows your bag to quickly convert to between being carried on your shoulder, cross-body, or as belted hip bag! Or detach the strap entirely for when you'll treat it like a wallet and toss it into a larger bag. 

Other Three Kits Included

The 3 extra included kits will lead you on a carefully curated journey. First up is the heart pencil topper, so you can stitch along with the "How To Saddle Stitch" Tutorial.

Follow that by completing your first bag accessory - a keychain in matching Rustic Wood leather with antique brass hardware. This will lock in and solidify your saddle stitching expertise.

There is one final stitch to learn - the gorgeous corset stitch. You will learn and practice with with the Mini Catch-all kit, again in gorgeous coordinating leather, which will become your favorite desk or tabletop accessory. 

Tutorials & Support

Every step is accompanied by a detailed video tutorial, and is backed up with as much personal support as you need.

What you need from home

With the pre-cut leather, thread and needles all included, you'll only need to source a pair of scissors (to cut the thread) and a lighter or match (to melt your thread ends.)

How hard is this? Can I do it?

These kits have been designed to be SO easy! Because all of the holes are already cut, you simply need to thread the needles and guide your thread through the holes - we promise you CAN do it, and we are here to help every step of the way. This craft is way easier than, say, knitting or embroidery or any other needle based activity we can think of. You'll have your first project done in less than 30 minutes, and will build confidence and speed very quickly from there. You will LOVE it, we guarantee it!

Can my child do this?

We've had children as young as 7 successfully complete these kits. However keep in mind that any kids younger than ~12 will likely need supervision and support - the needles are sharp, the tutorials require internet access and the final step of each stitch line involves fire! For a somewhat safer experience, consider adding on the optional toolset which will allow for a fire-free method of thread melting.

Perfect bag for events!

I have been eyeing this bag every time I’ve come into the shop. Finally I purchased it and I’m glad I did. It’s the perfect size for all of the large events (concerts, theatre, and games) that don’t let you bring in purses anymore. It’s beautifully made and and hold all the essentials!

Easy Kits Make Beautiful Bags

I’m so glad on stumbled on to Orcas Island Leather Goods store on my trip on Orcas Island. The items are beautiful and well-made, but the bonus was the option to buy and kit and stitch it together at home. What a wonderful way to create your own take on the store’s style selection of bags, wallets, and other items by picking out your color swatches and thread. After buying my first kit, I was hooked, and have now made these wonderful convertible bags! Thank you for making these beautiful kits and easy-to-follow videos!

Quality, Design, Details, Customer Service

The title of my review embodies everything you are seeking when it comes to supporting a local business. Orcas Island Leather Goods has perfectly found the balance among the aspects you look for when shopping for yourself or a loved one. The family (who work together as a unit) have created leather goods for anything you could need, satchels, wallets, wine carriers, AND kits that you can make or give as a gift for someone else to practice a fun hobby in learning how to sew leather (Plus- the options it comes to customizing the color of the leather + thread?! The tutorial videos they created online?!). As a newcomer to Orcas Island, I became so attached to this family owned business that while there I bought all that I needed to bring back to my friends, gifts encompassing the valued aspects a tourist seeks in the terms of quality, design, detail, and costumer service. Additionally, I have purchased product from this business all the way from Hawaii, and have been met with the same intentionality and quality of product and service that I received in-person. :) Highly highly recommend!

Quality shoulder bag

Love it! Perfect for cell, credit cards and a few necessary items. Strong leather with strong stitching keeping it all together. As an artist, the color options were a plus!
