When crafting a handbag, it can sometimes be hard to find the hardware and other supplies you need locally. I try to purchase zippers and a few other items when they’re on sale at Hobby Lobby or Joann’s, or when I have a 40% off coupon. Of course, I’m always on the lookout for fabric anywhere I go. For other supplies, such as snaps, d-rings, stiffeners, key fob hardware, and other miscellaneous items, I shop online here:
Joggles – lots of great stuff like handles, patterns, hardware, kits, and books, plus supplies for doll-making, embroidery, and so much more. I love Joggles!
Crafters Vision – key fob hardware, cotton webbing, ribbon, fabric, and lots of other good stuff, plus great customer service.
U-handbag – handles, frames, metal parts, fabrics, and a great blog.
There are lots of other great supply sources online, as well as free patterns galore. I’ll try to post a short list every now and then, as well as any new discoveries I make.
