The piano is way too loud. I could barely hear what was being said.

Wow! Grommets that just snap on?! Where have I been? The last bag I made using grommets was an ordeal, pounding them with a mallet, etc. I will certainly be looking at your selection and purchasing some.
Thanks for the great tip!!

Jo-Ann,
I’m so sorry you had trouble with the pattern! We did include that tip in our most recent printing of the pattern, as some folks did have trouble with keeping the grommets from popping. We really appreciate your input, it is important to use to know how the patterns are working for you, so we can keep making them better. Hopefully this will fix your problem. Thanks!

For Grids and Grommets
Installing the grommets through the fabric with fleece between the layers of fabric is very difficult. They keep popping open. We broke one of the grommets trying to get it to stay in place. The instructions that you gave here re: cutting out the fleece around the hole and stitching around the hole should be included with the pattern. We are going out to buy more grommets to replace the one we broke and hope this will fix the problem
