 Huh Hi everybody...I'm a newbie to this board and a newbie to sewing. I have an idea for a tote and want to incorporate upholstery tacks or nail heads into my design. I see that using the tack as it is will be impossible as the tack portion will stick through the inside of the bag and it will poke its owner. Also, there is nothing to secure it inside the bag. Any ideas would be welcome.

Rivets can look like nail heads... aside from that I am not sure if you could bend the tacks and somehow secure them inside the tote, you'd have to use something to keep them in place and cover the pointy bits. Maybe an adhesive of some sort, it could live between the outer and inner fabrics if you are planning to incorporate a lining.
