Belmont Bag

This bag was fun to make! Ellie is an excellent teacher, online, as well as face to face. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I have taken two different bag-making classes and plan to take several more. These sturdy, but lightweight bags are not difficult to make. I don't think I could ever make too many!

So easy with beautiful results

This makers kit was so fun and easy to complete. The materials are gorgeous and such high quality. I keep coming back to the site to buy hardware, canvas and zippers because I can’t find anything of this quality anywhere else. The range and quality of waxed canvas they offer is unmatched.

The bag itself is so cute and I love that it converts from a tote to a backpack. The canvas is easy and fun to work with. The Belmont is the most professional looking piece I’ve made so far..it’s all about the details :)
