Eyelets-1_large

This is part of a beltmaking series I covered on my blog. For more from my beltmaking series, hop on over to my blog: { http://www.afashionablestitch.com/tag/beltmaking/ }. You can also purchase beltmaking supplies from my shop: { http://shop.afashionablestitch.com/category/belt-making-supplies }. Eyelets are that one thing that can make your belt look professional and fabulous or homemade and pitiful. If you’ve ever made a belt from a belt and buckle kit, you might remember your first go at the eyelets as a little more than disheartening. My first try most certainly did. Oiy. In fact, after that rather unpleasant experience, I really had no idea why sewers were so hip on making their own belts. Once you get around the eyelets though, belts are way fun to construct. And don’t fret, because eyelets aren’t hard, they just take some tender loving care.

Technique Materials

I’ll be showing you a couple things here. First let’s assume that you don’t have a hole punch. You’ll need: ✂ an awl, ✂ some sharp snips, ✂ the dritz eyelet tool {http://shop.afashionablestitch.com/product/dritz-eyelet-tool } and ✂ a hammer.
