Daniel Parker from Studs and Buttonholes uses some unusual hardware on this vinyl tote he made. It’s actual hardware, like from the hardware store. More specifically, a door hinge. Love!! It took some experimenting for him to figure out the best way to attach them. He shares a tutorial telling how he made the vinyl tote and the best method for attaching the hinges. Go to Studs and Buttonholes for the tutorial.
