Grommet - how tos

After posting my easy breezy backpacks Sewing with Strings left a comment asking about the grommets.
That got me thinking....not everyone is familiar with the "how to" of grommets.
Once you see how easy they are, you will be using them on everything. I have used them on drawstring bags instead of the casing, shower curtains, a hanger for Miss Oakleigh's advent calendar and much more.

I know you've all probably seen these scary contraptions...
They cost about $13.00 each.

I use a much simpler and more inexpensive method.
Below is what I use.

The tool itself costs only a couple of dollars and comes in different sizes.
Once you purchase the grommet tool all you need are the grommets and a hammer.

See how easy they are?

I have been having trouble with grommets. I recently felted a purse and punched the holes in, and this post is perfect for me. I also nominated you for the Stylish Blogger Award. Go to and see:
