Great bag, great kit!

This is the fifth(!) Klum House bag I've made, and unsurprisingly this hardware kit and pattern are great. I made this as a gift using waxed canvas yardage (also from Klum House, but not part of a full maker kit---picked my own colors) and it turned out great. I love having all the leather pre-punched and pre-cut so you can get right into the making!
