so.. i have some grommets and some eyelets that i may use on a renaissance type dress.

i much prefer the smaller look of the eyelets, but i have heard they aren't as strong as grommets. is the strength comparable if you use washers with your eyelets?

if i were to do that, are the kinds of eyelet washers marketed for scrapbooking the same as those for fabric?

or does anyone know a place to purchase small brass-colored eyelets that COME with washers? boy, that would be convenient!! silly dritz.

The larger sized eyelets come with a back peice. They seem to work rather well.  I haven't used eyelets that many times (and I've never used grommets) but I've heard that well set washers hold up rather well, especially if you put fray check on the fabric before hand. Good luck.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Mostly I use grommets. There are eyelets that come with washers, but I don't have source for them. Last year I used some eyelets to lace up the front of a garment they were marketed as denim something. They were actually little flowers, but they had a washer and the tool to pound it closed.

Or you could look for small grommets size 0 or 00.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help!
