I bought 2 kits, the Hipbelt Pouch Kit and the DIY kit. I made the pouch kit first, and it came out great! It helped me figure out how to use the DIY kit to make more bags. There is plenty of material in the DIY kit to make several items. Afew cons: I think the instructions with the pouch could have been much better. I have sewn many items using patterns from the fabric store, and those patterns are much more clear. I finally figured out the instructions, but it was confusing. Also the zipper provided with the pouch does not zip smoothly.
Thanks for your thoughtful review Suze, we really appreciate it! I will let out product team know to add that kit to our list for a revamp the instructions. We're sorry that they weren't more up to date for you. Let us know if you ever have any questions regarding future projects, we're always here to help!
This was a great way to get started with the whole DIY thing. My first try was ugly and had some glaring mistakes. My second try was very functional and pretty decent looking, and the third was the charm. I am having so much fun making my own gear!
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review! We're glad the $10 DIY was helpful for you to learn how to make your own gear! It's a great starting point for working with technical fabrics and choosing exactly what you want to make. Enjoy!
Used the kit to make a bag for my hammock- turned out great, got practice with using outdoor fabrics before attempting a larger project, and mad a couple smaller bags too!
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review! The DIY Kit is awesome because you can make really whatever you want! Let us know if you have any questions about future projects, we're here to help!
Used the kit to make a pouch that attaches to my soft bags that I use on my motorcycle for camping. I stash my rain pants and a micro fiber cloth to wipe my helmet visor so I can get to them without opening up the main compartment.
That's a great idea for projects to do with the DIY Kit, thanks for sharing! We'd love to see pictures of your motorcycle accessories. Here is a link if you'd like to share. https://forms.gle/b9GB5qYXrtp2bdp96
