Did you have fun putting together this baseball pattern? Want to start your own leatherworking journey, but not sure where to begin? 

We started selling DIY Kits back in 2020 as a response to the COVID pandemic. Since then, these kits have skyrocketed in popularity. We've helped thousands of folks start their craft through these kits - everything you need to start one leatherworking project whether you have the tools or not. It's my hope to show folks that this is not a daunting hobby and that anyone can do it.

"People ask me what I do in the winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring."
