This was entirely too much money for what you get. The instruction book looked like it came off someones computer. It has no sewing needles or punches with it. It would be a good kit for a little kid if it costed about thirty dollars

First of all, this kit is on clearance at tandyleather.com for about half the price. I would probably be bummed out if I payed full price for this, but at under $40 it is a decent deal.

You get all of the basic stamping tools you need to create many different designs. I haven't watched the DVD, but I watched the Tandy how to videos on YouTube, and they are well done and easy to follow. You get decent sized dyes and glue, enough to use for several future projects. The design patterns provided are simple to follow, but you can also add enough detail by stamping to make your leather projects look quite ornate.

My only complaint is that you only get one rounder with which to practice. I would recommend buying either veg tan remnants or a pack of rounders for extra practice before starting any of the projects. Alternately, you can work on the projects in the order of how likely you are to actually use the finished items, starting with the least likely. I worked on the practice rounder first, then the money clip that doesn't hold very much money, (due to the magnets not being strong enough.) After that my order is keychain, change purse, then wallet.

Overall, I think this kit is a good way to learn leathercraft. If you are careful and watch the video tutorials, you will end up with several finished projects that you will be proud to show off to your friends.

Tandy Leather online offers this exact item for $39.99 I would strongly suggest signing up there and working with them as you will also get tech support. [...]

This was a nice intro leather working kit for my 12 year old who got to do a little bit of leather work at summer camp and has been hooked. The price was less than on the company's website. The shipping was fast and free with Prime. Very happy with this purchase.
