    My favorite bag!

    I enjoyed making the Fremont from a kit. I used video instructions and they were helpful. I was impressed with how the bag turned out, as was my husband, and friends. It is now my favorite purse, and I have several dozen so that is saying a lot. It is a great size for carrying everything I might want to and it starts out light weight so doesn't get too heavy. Plan to make another one!

    Easy pattern to follow

    There maker kit really makes this process easy and I would recommend it for you first bag. Once you've done it without having to prep your materials, it is easy to make it your own. Once I finished the first one, I immediately made another one for a friend.

    Wife loves this bag!

    I made this bag for my wife for her birthday....she loves it! It's now her daily bag and everyone loves it! I suspect I'll be making some more for others. This would have been a 5 star review, but my kit did not come with the 14" YKK brass zipper...I was bummed because I had to source it last minute so I could complete bag in time for the birthday surprise.

    New Bag Addict!

    Have you ever made something and just put it out to admire. This bag is THAT great! Even bought bags are not this well crafted. The products are top notch. I bought the full kit as wanted a craft project that I would work on right away thought I need to work on how to punch holes at the finishing stage. Already thinking of making another bag.

    Awesome sewing fun

    I bought The Fremont Bag kit from you and I just loved sewing it together. I watched the Craftsy class and it was so simple and easy with Ellie’s great instructions. I will be sewing this bag again. I ordered and received the grey and marigold bag waxed cotton combo. It came out great. I hadn’t seen a zipper in YEARS and it came out wonderfully. Thanks for all your great products and great instructions.

    Freemont Bag kit — Excellent kit, well thought out, very organized and helpful

    I bought the Freemont gray and green waxed canvas kit. The having the fabric & leather pre-cut and pre-punched made a HUGE difference for making the bag the first time. I knew that I didn't have to second guess my measuring and cutting and could just focus on techniques and assembling. It arrived in a tube so that the waxed canvas didn't need to be folded, there were no creases to deal with. I love the size and fabrics! I made the bag a second time as a gift to my sister - it went very well and she is thrilled with the results. I used some very special fabric called bogolan that I bought in Senegal, Africa for the pocket and it is lovely!
