I am not new to making leather bags, and totes from kits. But this is my first time with Popsewing. This bag was easy to make, and the end product looks expensive, and professional. I received so many compliments on this bag.
Additionally, I loved how the kit came with scissors, a thimble, and other tools. My only complaint is that the eye(s) on the needle from the kit were very small. This made threading the needle difficult. I had to use leather needles from other sources.
It is without hesitation that I would make another bag!
The bag was really nice quality materials, making it was fun and it looked really professional. Might try another style!
I’ve finished making my first handbag and I love it. The end product looks expensive and high quality. But better than that was the fun I had making it and the sense of achievement of having completed it. The kit had everything needed, the instructions were great and easy to follow. I’ve had so many compliments already and can’t wait to make another.
I also have to add that customer service has been excellent so helpful and patient, thank you.
Second project completed and a gift for a friend. Video instructions were much much better than the previous one. Again I found the difficulty rating not entirely true. Be forewarned: the last part constructing the side panels is quite tricky. Leather feels smooth and luxurious but the zipper opening is a little small. May be slightly difficult getting in and out of the bag. Looking forward to my third project but I think I need to let my poor hands rest for a while more! 😅
She loved the colour and thought a leather handbag kit was a brilliant ides. She lives in the UK and i'm in New Zealand, so I haven't seen the finished bag yet!
