Eyelet Maker

Return to the main Designer Maker blog page

After many years battling with different types of eyelet makers some time ago I finally decided I’d had enough of never quite getting the holes right! I decided to bite the bullet and invested in a heavy duty eyelet maker and it’s one of the best things I have done. At £60 it wasn’t cheap but then again it’s much cheaper than the cost of all of the cheap and ineffective eyelet tools I have brought over the years (and the cost included some eyelets too plus 3 adaptors for inserting 3 different size of eyelets). 

It is pretty big, so takes up quite bit of storage space but it’s easy to use and you don’t need to be ultra strong to use it, unlike many of the hand held versions. I had to insert 40 eyelets for a big teacher course I was running and it took me less than an hour to do (including creating the holes in the fabric) and I had no mistakes or poor quality outcomes, unlike the previous course I ran where I had to create a similar amount of eyelets but where it took me several times longer, with many poor quality eyelets along the way. An investment I can definitely recommend.
