    I went back several pages and didn't see any related threads, and also did a search that didn't pull up anything specifically for this topic, so I'm sorry if there is already a thread related here!

    I'm looking to start making my own handbags and wallets. I've been looking for luggage clasps similar to this, but haven't been able to find a large variety.

    So I was thinking for my benefit, and anyone else who was interested, of starting a thread of resources for people who want to sew bags.

    So far, here are some places online that I've found sell handbag hardware:
    U-Handbag.com
    Ah Kwok Supplies @ eBay
    HHM

    Also, if anyone wants to post handbags or wallets that they've made, I would love to see them! ^_^

    I made this simple leather clutch and decorated it with bullet casings, it was very easy;)

    ^^ It was a simple pattern, nothing crazy, it has a zipper underneath the flap. Once i got started, it took a couple of hours because that material was canvas and I used it as the lining as well to eat up left over fabric.
