Maywood + Naito Making Info

  • Do I need a heavy-duty sewing machine?
    No! The Maywood Totepack can be made successfully on a wide range of regular home sewing machines.

  • What kind of needle and thread do I need?
    We recommend using a 100 denim needle or a non-stick needle, and all-purpose thread to match the main, accent, and lining fabrics.

  •  What tools will I need?
    The Maywood Totepack & The Naito Bucket Bag have tubular rivets, which must be set with a tubular rivet peening tool and a (non-rubber!) mallet on a hard surface, such as a slab of stone, metal anvil, or concrete floor. To set the magnetic snap rivet, you’ll need a magnetic snap setter. Finally, to punch holes in fabric you’ll need a 3/32” drive punch, which is used with a mallet on a cutting board.

    You can add these tools to your kit individually, or combined in The Maywood + Naito Essential Tools Bundle for a discounted price!

  • How long does it take to make this bag?
    The making time for intermediate project kits is estimated at 6-8 hours. Having said that, each maker has their own pace and process. We recommend adding the online class for extra support and to ensure a seamless (no pun intended 😉) making experience.
