Most of our patterns belong to a series, with each one focusing on teaching techniques at differing skill levels from absolute beginner (Warrior) to advanced (Elven). Each design theme represents a cohesive system that looks, and functions together perfectly with other parts of the series. But it doesn’t stop there! These design themes are also modular allowing you to pick and choose components across multiple themes. At the moment there are 4 complete themes either complete or in progress and more will come in time. Get the bundles for the best value when you buy into a complete theme and get many matching bonus items like accessories (pouches etc.) as they are ready! As another huge bonus the tutorials for each series are specifically designed to teach you different aspects of the art of leather crafting and armor making. So you will be equipped with the knowledge to make your armor project a one of a kind masterpiece!

When deciding between bundles and buying separately, there is no right or wrong answer; but there are a few things that may help you decide. The general recommendation is to go for a bundle, unless you just want to test out one or two patterns to start out, or if you want to mix and match components across multiple themes.
The Fantasy Armor series has all the components you need to craft a head to toe suit of leather armor with complete advanced video tutorials that are designed like a digital apprenticeship crash course for both leather crafting and armor crafting. The video tutorials for each component breaks down the daunting task of creating an entire suit into a beginner friendly journey. The bundle also has bonus content available coming soon as well!
This series also includes a bonus style so you can easily craft a smoother more LARP friendly variant. And the video tutorials will teach you many crafting techniques you can use to augment your crafting skills and to truly make it your own.
Our Recommendation: Start with our Fantasy Armor bundle to learn the broad strokes of leatherworking and armor crafting.
