    Finally, the bag is finished. I had to completely "redo" the band and handle. The original instructions said to use fusible fleece , but that was way too heavy for the grommets. They kept popping out. So I bought new fabric and used a lightweight interfacing. The grommets then went on beautifully.

    Oohh! I really like that. I bought some grommets to make a bag for my DGD. I am glad to know about the fleece for my future project.

    Is that the grid and grommet bag pattern?? I made a lot of those a couple of years ago and sold a couple of them. They are easy to make and putting in the big grommets too. Enjoy your purse is beautiful. Huggies, Fay

    beautiful bag. The information regarding fleece is soooo helpful. Was wanting to do bag with grommets, this is a lifesaver.
