Design Your Own Handbag Purse

What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the hardware. I have made many purses, but have not used hardware. It makes the handbag look very custom and professional. What advice would you give someone starting this project? My advice would be to have patience when installing the hardware. The actual sewing of the bag was simple, but installing the hardware took me most of the afternoon.

Q&A with Dvandie

GeniKnits asked:
Where did you find the large grommets? Are they the kind that have bendy tabs, or the really heavy ones with screws like Brett used? you can email me at info@geniknits.com and visit me at geniknits.blogspot.com. Thanks :)
Dvandie answered:
They are the really heavy ones with screws. I ordered them from www.pacifictrimming.com. They came very quickly. Thank you for the kind comments.
