Eyelets provide a quick way to make closures for cushions and covers, and for curtain headings can be the easiest to make and to use. Any fabrics that won’t fray can be punched and left raw–especially wool melton, felt, leather, suede and faux suede.
Large eyelets that thread over curtain poles need to be fitted by an industrial machine, smaller ones can be made at home.
1. A small hole–punched fabric, and left raw or with finely stitched edges–made into through which ties, laces, or strings can be threaded for decoration or closure
2. A metal fitting that can be fixed into the fabric with a surround and a narrow tube.
