Grids and Grommets Tote

I worked this weekend during the horrible Diamondback games making this Grids and Grommets Tote. The entire exterior is quilted using a fusible quilting grid. This was my first time to use grommets and it's scary cutting holes in something that you have worked hours to complete but it worked out. They really were quite easy but probably would be easier on a thinner fabric. This tote has two layers of fusible fleece which make it bulky.
The fabric for exterior and lining are by Michael Miller. The tote is large and roomy. It may become a retirement gift for a friend. Not sure yet. Pattern is from Indygo Junction.

Another lovely bag! Love the colors on this one. :)
I would have been scared too making holes in it in order to fit the grommets. What did you use to fit the grommets?
