    Attach pins without puncturing my precious TB bags

    Hi Inventive Bihnions, do any of you have good ideas for attaching a pin to a bag without damaging the bag? A custom zipper pull, perhaps??

    I usually attach pins to a strap rather than the bag fabric. On my Pop Tote, I can attach a 1” button to the strap without puncturing it at all.

    I have a 1” button machine and bought some parts to turn buttons into zipper pulls. Here’s an example, though it’s a little hard to see on the black Halcyon...

      I made a lanyard with some 1" triangle hooks and some strapping off an old backpack. If I was making it again I'd use a double gatekeeper instead. It hangs from the handle on my swift.

        I use a Single Pouchkin, attached to a Double Carabiner and clip the latter, to the handle of the bag.

        The Pouchkin clip is very strong.

        I love buttons and it was great to see that Pouchkins are perfect for them. The red or blue make for a great contrasting color.


        Like you, I would not pierce my TB bags, nor my clothing for that matter.

        If you are using a TB Bag with vertical orientation, I think a Double Pouchkin would be ok, it would fit 2 pins.

        For oddly shaped pins the Knitting Tool Pouches would be great also.


        Edited because I saw your post about custom zipper pull, that is a great idea!


        But, in my case, I don't trust some the pins' closing mechanism, this is why I use the Single Pouchkin.

        Furthermore, some of my pins are tiny and/or gifts and I want them to be secure.

          So you're putting the pins inside the pouchkin?
