so if your like me and want to try something new please by all means take this chance. so it took me a total of 14 hours. but i’m somewhat easy distracted and i like things to be perfect.
so if you want true advice. the leather sides “bag connectors” fold in half and place it in a book while you sew the first parts.
when attaching the bottom i used a tube of sanitation wipes to loosely hold the shape and sewed top down to make it easier.
next don’t be afraid to reach out to customer support for help i felt like i had stupid questions and they were like no here’s how to do this or here’s what this is for.
now the most important advice. take a break. if you get frustrated like me … (for the people that know or maybe you didn’t have issues with it. the handles.) there was one part i couldn’t rap my head around but i finally got it. take a break in between this is a i get to experience not a i have too.
full transparency this is my first time and i want to do more. maybe someone will hear my prayer and they decide to make a xxl or xl bag. i just like big bags. however i will tell you. i can fit a lot in this bag once completed
if you made it this far in reading my review thank you. however order it. and don’t be afraid. they say you get old when you stop trying or learning new things take a chance!
I thought the long Kelly Wallet was fun to put together - but I thoroughly enjoyed putting the top grain leather platinum bag even better. Especially now that I have gotten used to it. The leather quality was great, video tutorial was easy to follow and I've enjoyed and gotten many compliments from using the bag. Looking out for my next project!
Easy to follow instructions and easily completed. They would be a great Christmas gift also.
Very pleased with how this came out. It’s worth taking your time on the corners to ensure it looks perfect when flipped right-side-out at the end.
Ordered the “large” which is the size of a 25 in another brand. Dog for scale.
