Portsmith Leather and Hardware kit

I bought the Portsmith pattern and leather and hardware kit. Really loved how the bag turned out. Everything from Klum House is well packaged and the instructions are easy to follow....well, I did use my seam ripper a few times, and that is because I am still learning. But I love the kits and different items to help make great gifts! Ellie does a great job in explaining how to do certain tasks. A great teacher!

Excellent pattern

I've been a sewist for 50+ years. Klum House pattern instruction are, by far, the best I've ever used. Very clear, well written, and the images are excellent. The Tips are pretty darn great too ;)

Great quality!

These handles are so lovely, and with the holes pre punched I had my bag finished about 10 minutes after the mailman dropped off my order!
