Made a double ended stuff sack, a single ended stuff sack, and two travel sized pillows from the materials provided. It was really exciting to MAKE something, and I will be moving on to more complex projects from here. Great confidence booster. Thanks!
I knew that I wanted to get into making small pouches and packets and was dead set on buying a Dyneema zip pouch kit, but saw this as I was about to check out and ended up buying both. I had never really done much sewing before, and these materials gave me a great way to experiment! I bought some extra 1" webbing with my order and turned some of the fabric from this kit into a stuff sack with a handle and a carabiner attachment. RBTR is the bomb, and these rotating kits of mixed materials make it cheap and simple to try out new ideas and new fabrics.
I got the big idea that I could make a rain kilt. I ordered the diy kit along with my silnylon. Luckily I started with a small bag for my kilt, it gave a chance to work with the materials I would use for my kilt but also gave me the confidence to jump into making my own equipment.
Just the product I was looking for and for a great price!
This kit is pretty nice. It comes with a variety of material and hardware choices, in a range of sizes.
If you have a vintage machine and you are concerned that it may not play nicely with modern synthetics, as I was, get this kit. It's a great way to try out the latest materials and test your machine's abilities.
So far, I've had my best results with 90/14 Microtex needle and Mara 70 thread.
