Trying eyelets

Here is my first stab at eyelets and twine! They are a lot of fun once you get the hang of them...if you are thinking about them, let me suggest that you play with a friends setter first. Setters can be cheap or expensive, depending on your preference. The cheaper ones are usually a hammer and setting tool and can be rather noisy. The more expensive option is the Crop-a-dile. I love mine, but it has a very limited reach...but it has two size settings and hole punches too. If you want to go ultra fancy, then the Crop-a-dile II is the way to go...at $50, it has a 6 inch reach. I finally broke down and got the automatic punch...a little noisy and you need to put some weight behind it, but it works well and comes with several different attachments. This page was done with the Crop-a-dile...
