We are so excited to be a part of Purse Palooza 2012! When Sara asked Indygo Junction to participate we knew we’d love to share some fun purse techniques with you that you can use with a variety of purse designs. Two of our favorite video tutorials are Installing Dritz Grommets & Installing Magnetic Closures!

When it comes to handbag hardware, your ace is in the holes.

Polish up your next purse project with grommets, a fashionably functional detail that helps reinforce holes for straps or drawstrings. Some of Indygo’s most popular patterns feature these eyelet accents, including Grids and Grommets (IJ805), Grommet Grab Bag (IJ851), Grommet Hipster (IJ857) and Grommet Wallet (IJ880) – which are all part of a giveaway!!

Want to install this style staple? Indygo Junction’s founder, Amy Barickman will show you how in one of our most popular videos.

We’re also drawn to magnetic snaps. Not only do these closures provide a secure fastening to your handmade purse, but they also add a professional, polished look.

Many bags use magnetic closures. This handbag hardware isn’t hard to install. Click below to watch our tutorial to learn how installing these closures are…well, a snap!

I hope these tips help make your purses & totes have that little something extra! Keep coming back to see all of the Purse-Palooza fun!!
