Christina's Waxed Canvas Woodland
I have now made three Klum House bags, but I particularly love the Woodland Dopp Kit. I was initially intimidated to work with the waxed canvas, because I usually work with lighter weight fabric. But honestly, it was a dream! It sews beautifully and you never need to press (actually you aren't supposed to press, because it will melt the wax).
Pattern: Woodland Dopp Kit
Fabric: Waxed Canvas
Other supplies: Woodland Finishing Kit
The Klum House patterns are really easy to follow; the instructions are well written and the illustrations are really helpful. The first time I make something, I try my best to trust the designer and follow the instructions exactly, but I am thinking of "going rogue" for the next bag. I'm probably going to use a heavy striped fabric, like ticking.
The tricks I found helpful in making these bags were to make sure to sew with a size 14-16 needle, the edge stitch foot works really well when hemming pockets, make sure you have the right tools when installing your hardware and matching thread is your best friend.
