She'scrafty, I was so surprized to read Jackmans being mentioned I live about 40 min west of St. Louis. I haven't been in a Jackmans since I stopped sewing for bridal parties but it sure was a fun store to browse. Love your purse, great job, hard to believe it's your first. Now this might sound silly but Wal-mart usually has grommets in their sewing dept. if they still have one for less than a fabric store. But I'm going to be checking out that Lowe's/Home Depot tip who would have thought that they'd have them! lol

I like the way you made your handles.  The grommets and belting look really nice with the rest of the bag.

Lowes and home depot are a sewers paradise! I have bought the grommet kit there, screening I have made into a bag, they have all kinds of ropes to use for handles. Blue painters tape for marking seam lines, they have vinyls. My newest thing is a riveter, like they have in blue jeans, I used it to rivet some purse handles onto a bag. They also have heavy duty snap kits ( way better then the drtz crap ) and webbing as well.
