MK in Ann Arbor
Pilot run for making stuff sacks to a specific size

I wanted to make stuff sacks sized exactly right for carrying down vests and jackets for travel. I am a quilter so I am a skilled sewist but have never used nylon or polyester fabrics and thread, and they do sew up differently and need slightly different techniques. The $10 DIY kit was perfect, providing samples of the fabrics I might want to use and allowing me to test out what thread, needles, and techniques to use. I now can order yardage knowing which of the fabrics I prefer and knowing that I will be successful in sewing up what we need

Thanks for your review MK! We're glad that the kit was able to let you play around with fabrics and test different techniques. Let us know if you have any questions about fabrics for future projects, we're always here to help!

$10 DIY Kit Rocks!

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!

Very happy

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!
