I have decided to try attaching the handles
to my tote bags with
Double Cap Rivets
I have sewn handles by machine
and also hand stitched them to the bags.
I wasn't happy with either method.
The double cap rivet gives a clean finish
on both sides of the bag.
I have never done this before,
so I was a little nervous punching holes
into the first canvas bag:
The rivets give a nice, clean look to the bag
and hold the leather handles on securely.

I am in love with double cap rivets!
You can see best on the white handles,
the rivets looks neat on the inside
of the bag:
Messy Painted Tote Bags
with leather handles and...
Double Cap Rivets!
