Learn With Us

At Klum House, we pride ourselves in creating patterns that are thoughtful, holistic, and easy-to-follow. We want you to feel fully-supported at every step of your making journey. This is what you can expect to encounter:

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.

Make From Scratch - Alternatively, source and prep all of your supplies yourself! For a detailed list of everything you’ll need, download the full TOOLS + SUPPLIES LIST

    Love her patterns

    The quality of the patterns are very well made. I will be making it this week. I also purchased the video, I need to have a video as I am a visual learner and appreciate that Klum House Ellie thinks to have them available with her patterns.This is why I own almost every pattern they have! I will continue to buy them as long as she continues to make pattern plus video. Thank you again for such wonderful patterns and videos. I can't wait till covid is over so I can go to an in person workshop. Thank you
