Artisans Leather Keyring Kit Review

Today I’m really pleased to be reviewing a lovely craft kit from Artisans.

I love a craft kit, when everything you need to try something new in right there for you in a cute little package, count me in! So when Artisans asked if I’d like to try out one of their leather craft kits I jumped at the chance. Working with leather is not something I’ve got any experience of so a kit is definitely a great way to go.

This kit has been provided to me as a gift from Artisans in exchange for my honest review.

The Artisans kit arrived in sweet little glassine envelope and each contained everything I needed to make a classy leather keyring. All I needed of my own was a pair of scissors to cut the cord and a little pot of water to burnish the leather.

There were two cords to choose from. I went for the tan colour to match my leather. I figured if I messed up the stitching a little it would be less noticeable! I needn’t have worried, it was very simple to make the leather keyring and quite hard to go wrong. There is a QR code in the package that takes you straight to the instructions, or you can look on the Artisan website under resources.

I felt a teeny tiny bit like Suzie on The Repair Shop as I learnt to lock the needle and burnish the leather! (I’m not sure if anyone not in the UK will know The Repair Shop, it’s an utterly fabulous BBC show where people bring their old treasures to be renovated by experts and Suzie is the leather work expert. It’s the most lovely show, if you get chance, I’d highly recommend it.)

Sewing a leather key ring kit

Anyway, back to my leather keyring kit. It took about 15 minutes to make this leather keyring, I’m so happy with how it turned out. Classy is the best word I can think of to describe it.


One side of the keyring is embossed with the words “personally crafted” and a bee, the other side is plain. I like that, it makes the finished keyring perfect to either keep for yourself or gift to someone else.
