I love using eyelets on my sewing makes, from bags to tea towels, lavender tags to wigwams! The one tool I use to make my eyelets is the Prym Vario Pliers & Piercing Tool, they make attaching eyelets much easier...
You can use them to cut the hole in the fabric and attach the eyelet but the Prym Vario pliers are also perfect for many different projects. Use them to attach press fasteners, jean buttons, rivets and of course eyelets. You can also use the Prym Vario for piercing and hole punching as it comes with piercing tools to create 3, 4 and 8mm holes for textiles, leather, plastic foil etc.
So if you have a lot of eyelets to attach I recommend the Prym Vario Pliers & Piercing Tool.
