Grommets

Helene | Posted in General Sewing Info on

Hello all, I am new at this chat room. Can anyone tell me the easiest way to insert a grommet as every time I tried, I failed.

    To insert extra large grommets, I purchased a kit with a stamp like tool that was placed over the grommet parts and then hammered to secure them. For smaller ones I have pliers but haven't tried those out yet.

      I agree these are frustrating, as are metal snaps and rhinestone or metal studs. The tools I've bought to insert these things don't work for me. I'd like some tips on getting better results.

        I have just given up and use little satin stitch things to do the same job and they look fine.
