Update below

Hi Cuties! I tried a mini book cover for a guy. I save & used the black elastic that shoes, flip flops,etc are hooked together at Walmart on the rack.
Update- I tried to install a small grommet without my pliers ( I can’t find mine) to insert elastic for these vinyl covers. The black elastic was off some shoes from Walmart that they use to hang and keep the pairs together. I also wanted you to see they fit perfectly in a mans shirt pocket.
On the cloth fabric, the brown print fabric in the other post, I used a ponytail band. I just stitched a large zig-zag over, not on, the elastic band.
I cannot find my pliers for the grommets. I’ve only had them about 40 years, you would think I could find them-lol

No doubt about you Toogie, you're a marvel when it comes to doing something different. It looks fabulous and so good to reuse things. Love Chris

Thank you Chris, it's always good to come up with something for the men and I have to thank Laura, for this idea.

Thank you...they should be here or got lost in a move. Can't even remember when I used them last.

Sadly, Toogie I can not view your pic's. I do not know if it is my internet or what. I know your work is very fine though.

Thank you for having confidence in me, sight unseen.
Have you tried restarting your pc? I’m not much help but sometimes I have to do that with mine and also my phone when it acts up.

Thank you for sowing us all yours and all the info you helped with. I just told my daughter I have had something 40 + years that I cannot find. Of course it's not in the container I 'always' kept it in with the eyelets and grommets. It's my Dritz Gripper Plier that I paid $3.95 for back in the stone age. Everything else was there but not my pliers.

Great job! What size needles do you use for vinyl?
