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!
