made by you
As part of our Made From Home project series, say hello to the m moon phone pouch, a project more suited to those looking to step up from our beginner workshops.
The online tutorials are demonstrated by simétrie founder Simone Agius, where you will be guided through the step-by-step process in making your m moon phone pouch from home.
all materials provided
All materials are provided in this Leather Kit and you can also purchase a Tool Kit if you don't already have basic leather tools. All tools are reusable to continue your love affair with leathercraft once you complete your first project.
eco-friendly & humanely sourced leather
Simone exclusively uses vegetable tanned kangaroo leather [tanned with plants vs chemicals], which is considered to be the most eco-friendly & humane source of leather available today. Read more on this here.
Vegetable tanned leather will age with you, adding uniqueness to the finished piece as you use it, telling a story of who you are as time goes on. Australian kangaroos are wild animals so you may notice some slight blemishes, and the vegetable tanned nature of the hides will cause lighter coloured leathers to darken over time.
Simone believes that adding sentiment to products is what encourages people to cherish them for longer, keeping things out of landfill and hopefully passed onto loved ones.

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!
so nice to read this feedback Joanna! it's a very addictive craft indeed & easy to fall in love with - simétrie wouldn't exist without this love for the craft!
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.
so glad you enjoyed making your Moon Phone Pouch & thank you for the lovely feedback xx
