Several people have told me that are a little wary of the eyelet feature of the Bucket Bag. One thing that is funny about sewists is that although they may have accomplished a very elaborate pieced quilt, they may not have done something simple like installed a zipper or tried out eyelets. I understand because I was in the same boat not too long ago. My friend Vanessa asked me to try out her London Backpack (a gorgeous pattern!) a few years ago and I made a drawstring casing instead of the eyelets that the pattern called for. The eyelets would have been so much faster and better looking!
So, I made a quick video to show you how to install eyelets on the new Bucket Bag pattern using both the tool (you can purchase for only a few dollars at walmart!) and how to use the dritz eyelet pliers ( about $15-$20).
Now you can use eyelets on all sorts of things- gift bags, backpacks, curtains, even clothing!
