Eyelets on Silnylon on 03/16/2012 17:21:39 MDT Print View

I'm trying to put eyelets on a Silnylon bag that I've been making. My problem is that the material is too thin to allow the eyelets to grab the material enough. The eyelets keep coming out. In this case most of the eyelets are going through 2 layers but in some places 1 layer of 1.1 oz Silnylon. Any suggestions on how to reinforce the material so the eyelets don't fall out? Thanks
Michael

grosgrain? on 03/16/2012 18:31:00 MDT Print View

grosgrain webbing? In that case I would probably just use loops of webbing instead of eyelets.

I suggest a change of design. Eyelets are just not matched to the fabric.
I usually add some tough (wear-resistent) nylon to the inside of the drawcord sleeve where the string exits.

Cheers
