Following an informative instructional video put together by an expert leatherworker, you'll build your bag in easy to follow steps. You'll be able to use your finished homemade bag with pride!

This kit comes with everything you need to make a beautiful, timeless saddle bag in high-quality Italian premium vegetable-tanned leather. There is no hand or machine stitching involved in the process - you will weave leather pieces together to create your bag.

You'll receive an easy-to-follow instructions booklet with diagrams as well as a make-along video tutorial to guide you through the process.

Your kit and video offer up lots of guidance on how to put your accessory together and everything you need is provided in your craft box. Get stuck into the creative process and build yourself a new leather saddle bag in no time!

Your instructional video is only 25 minutes long, but you should set aside around an hour and a half to make your saddle bag.

Dimensions of finished bag:
30cm (12”) wide by 20cm (8”) high by 8cm (3”) deep.

The strap is adjustable with a solid brass buckle and measures 95cm (37”) at shortest/120cm (47”) at longest.

If you'd like to personalise your accessory, you can provide details when you purchase your kit. You'll also be able to choose from a range of colours - select your favourite shade at checkout!

I set up Leather Needle Thread in 2016 teaching bag making workshops in Bristol, UK. Having guided over 300 people to make their next leather bag (and the odd espadrille and leather sneaker!) from scratch I learnt what they found challenging, what they enjoyed and how they developed a sense of pride in their abilities.

I have been a leatherworker for over 10 years and studied bag design and construction at the London College of Fashion before going on to work in the industry as a leatherworker and sample maker.

The bag making craft kits were dreamed up because I wanted to give people a way to easily make covetable leather bags from beautiful materials, minimal tools and pared-back techniques in their own home.
