Where to Buy Cork Fabric

I bought my cork fabric at Sallie Tomato. They have the best selection I have seen in one spot! Also, etsy and local sewing or quilt shops usually have a few options as well.

Where to Buy Hardware

I find Amazon to be a great place to buy hardware for this. Here is a great one on Amazon. Sallie Tomato has hardware as well as Emmaline Bags.

  3. Fold in half lengthwise with wrong sides together and clip into place. cork key fob tutorial
