I sewed this bag in one afternoon—fastest handbag kit I’ve completed so far. The leather is stamped (similar to Epsom) on the exterior and smooth on the inside. The strap is a great length for shoulder wear, and can be worn crossbody as well, though it hangs a bit high/at waist-level on me.
This bag’s structure is quite stiff, even more so than the mini Kelly kit. I expect this bag will hold its shape perfectly for many years.
This was backordered for awhile and I started this immediately as soon as I received it. The leather is good quality and kit included everything you needed except glue. Overall, this was really fun to make. I have been getting lots of compliments on this one too, so far all of the kits I purchased here are amazing.
