I'm such a nerd :lol: :oops: I spent a good few minutes wandering around the house looking for stuff with grommets on it and measuring them :lol: to see what size would be most useful. Most of the ones on kid's clothing are around 7-8mm internal diameter; while the ones on DH's hoodies are more like 1 cm internal diameter. So...I'm thinking of ordering a 7-8 mm one, cos I think it'd get the most useage here - the larger ones look a bit clunky IMO.

Might as well take advantage of the good exchange rate at the moment and go a bit wild :hide:

ok not that wild :oops: that was a bit tongue in cheek :lol: :rofl:

I'm just planning on getting the die sets for grommets and metal snaps, and maybe a few reels of the woolly poly serger thread. So yeah...rather unwild, now that I write it down :-)

How 'bout you?
