In my previous post, I highlighted bag designs you can purchase online from Etsy sellers who allow you to sell the bags you make. There is much more to the world of bag-making, however, such as knowing where to find bag hardware. Most of your local fabric stores provide a basic assortment of bag handles, D-rings, zippers, magnetic clasps and maybe even purse feet. If you’re looking for something a little more unique, however, online shopping is probably your best bet. I’ve collected 16 different sources below, all of them on Etsy, that will help you get started. Always check the feedback rating when you shop this way, since small items can easily become lost in transit, and that’s when you’ll be relying on good customer service to remedy the situation. Just click on the photo to visit this treasury. If the item has sold, you can still visit any of these shops to look for alternatives.

Finally, bag-making help is as close as your library and local or online bookstore.  Whatever type of bag you like to wear or tote, these great titles will have you sewing professional-looking bags in no time at all!
