I forgot to add button loop (or magnetic button) to the bag I made recently before I completed the sewing..
Have to add later and the material is too thick to sew a loop on the bag.
So, I used rivet instead.. so handy... :)
Here is how to attached rivet:
I bought mine rivet set from China online website but here is where to buy rivet tool locally:
1) http://hong2lee.blogspot.com/2011/04/o28-o29-o30-tubular-rivet-tool.html - this does not include a base which I think it is fine, use some old newspaper and scrap as base... try at your own risk. :)
2) http://sewinglife-shop.blogspot.com/2011/04/8mm-rivet-tools.html - this one come with a base
3) http://sewinglife-shop.blogspot.com/2011/04/rivet.html - revets, look at the diameter of the rivet for the width of the handles and the length of the rivet (must be sufficient for the thickness of handle material & bag).
