Grommet Purses

These are two examples of grommet purses that I made for the young adults in the family. The pattern is called Wallet & Grommet by Maple Island Quilts. The purses are about 10" by 11". I used the new square grommets that just arrived at the Overbrook Quilt Shop.

These purses are quick and easy. The directions are very clear. These purses use only four of the grommets. The grommets do not need a special tool. After cutting a hole, the grommets are set by squeezing them together until you hear a snap. I also used two layers of fusible fleece to help the purses hold their shape. One of my quilting friends said she had seen purses like these in botique shops while in Cancun.
