Clear Instructions - We are teachers, first and foremost, and as such we know that clear language is so important. We are dedicated to crafting simple, easy-to-follow instructions, so you can forge ahead with confidence.

Helpful Tips + Cautions - Your instructions booklet will be peppered with helpful tips, reminders, and caution moments. We know all of the most common mistakes (because we’ve made them!) and point them out so you can avoid them.

Excellent Illustrations - Our patterns are filled with helpful, technically-precise illustrations. We makers are visual learners! With 3D renderings and transparent layers, we’ll help you conceptualize every stitch, flip, and fold.

Specialty Education - Bag making is different from other types of sewing. It involves working with heavy-duty fabrics, leather, hardware, and tools you may not have encountered before. But don’t worry, our patterns break it all down.

Multiple Making Paths - Whether you choose to make from a fully-prepped maker kit, a leather + hardware kit, or “from scratch,” our patterns are designed to guide you along your chosen path to guarantee a successful make!

SUPPLIES NEEDED

Maywood Full Maker Kit - This is the most foolproof (and luxurious) way to make. Pre-cut fabric, ready-to-attach leather straps, and all of the hardware you need—all in the colors of your choice. All you have to do is make!

NOTE: Maywood PDF Pattern is included with a Maywood Full Maker Kit!

Maywood Leather + Hardware Kit - Prefer to source your own fabric? This option is for you! It comes with all the leather and hardware bits, minus the fabric.

I’m going to love everything about this bag. The handles and straps are such a well thought out design. I really like the d rings on the backpack straps. Their placement comes in front near the shoulder area, really handy for attaching a key ring, ID, security device. You can stuff a lot of the items in this bag and use it as a shoulder bag if you choose to.

I’ll be finishing up this project soon. Like all the Klum House patterns the directions and information is great. I’m a bit slow, I’ve been cutting my own leather straps and I added a a zippered pocket on the interior. It’s going to be really nice…. Still a work in progress and such an enjoyable sew.
