This kit has plenty to get you started with MYOG! Great selection of fabric to play around with. I've made a stuff sack and am laying out a Bishop bag/ridgeline organizer to go with the hammock I also just made. Great kit!
A great package of fabrics, thingummybobs and doohickeys to keep occupied and try things out. . I got the kids involved, transforming the kit into different little bags, sacks, eventually some doll clothes! Excellent value and lots can be done with the contents!! Another great idea from ripstopbytheroll!
Aw, we love that the whole family got involved and that you were able to make some bags and even doll clothes! Enjoy!
The kit as I received it contains materials for 3 stuff sacks of decent proportions. My version has 2 waterproof(a HyperD 300 looking), a sil ripstop (not sure if poly or nylon), and a regular ripstop probably 1.6, some cordage 3 cord locks and a small amount of a lightweight for reinforcement. I will make 2 stuff sacks and use the heavier material and some leftover zipper stock to make a cool zipper pouch and possibly a shoulder strap pouch. There's that much fabric. It's a gamble as to what you'll get, but it will be good stuff.
Thanks Mike! We're glad you were able to create so many custom things out of the $10 Kit! If you have any questions about the fabric, email us at email@example.com and we would be happy to help!
As someone getting started with MYOG I was happy about the idea of getting a sampling of fabric pieces to practice on and compare. My biggest complaint about this item is that there is no indication of what the fabrics are! I found some that I think I like but now I have no idea what to order next and how to compare the different samples I got.
Hey Ari! Thanks for your review. The fabrics that were sent to you should be the same listed in the photo for the this $10 DIY kit. (1.6 oz HyperD in Dark Olive, 1.1 oz Silpoly in Royal Purple, and 2.2 oz HEX70 PU3000 in Orange) The fabrics should match this but you might have received a different color if we ran out of that specific color. If you have any questions about the fabrics or future projects, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'd be happy to help!
I was on the fence about making my own gear, this gave me the chance to try my hand with some of the materials at a very low expense...FYI I am hooked.
Making your own gear is SO addicting! Let us know if you have any questions about future projects!
