I saw a quilted purse in a shop while on a trip that used four 2-piece grommets for the straps to pass thru. They appear to snap together to cover the fabric (they are 2-pieces each), have an inside diameter of about 1-1/2' and a 1/4" outer ring, and are plastic.

Does anyone know where I can find these? I think I would prefer them to smaller metal grommets I have seen at LFS.

I found metal ones that hold forever, like in canvas, in the sporting/hunting stores. The small ones work great for totes and purses.

I get my metal grommets at michaels craft store. They have a good variety of them. Joanne's has them to and they are in the sewing section. You could also check for them at amazon.com.
