At simétrie, we believe everyone should experience the feeling of creation, because when we create something ourselves – we feel good and treasure it for longer, if not forever.

MADE FROM HOME kit reviews

This was a great distraction away from the news and flatness of COVID. I really enjoyed the process come to a head the other night when I could step back and say 'wow, I really just put together my first leather pouch!' Really easy to follow via the video tutorial and I had everything I needed with the leather kit I purchased from Simetrie too. I kind of want to make another one!

The kit is perfect for someone with good intentions and no experience. The instructional video guides you through and I only struggled with getting the stitches as neat as I wanted them. But otherwise, it was easy to take it from go to woah. I aimed to do it over one weekend but ended up working on it two days on different weekends. In the sun with a cuppa.

I bought this kit with much excitement as I wasn't able to make it to Melbourne to do the face-to-face class (initially because I live in Qld and secondly as COVID hit).I was so excited when the make at home kits were released. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. Simone was so helpful with a couple of tweaks I wanted to make to the pouch (to make it into a bag with a strap). I made this bag in one day. I recommend purchasing the Leather Tool Kit as it has some really handy things in there that make life really easy and they finish the bag off beautifully. I learnt a lot from making this pouch and the final product is just lovely. The gold embossing is a really nice touch as well.
