I am really scared to try and fasten eyelets for some reason.  How exactly does it work?  I have a setter but it just doesn't spatially fit together in my head.

I tried eyelets for a while, but decided to switch over to using brads instead.  Perhaps this was because I bought a cheap eyelet setter, which doesn't give perfectly flattened eyelets after you hammer it down.  Also, you have to be sure to pad the surface really well, otherwise you'll have eyelet marks all over your table!  Brads are easier to use - just punch a hole, then fasten the brad by opening the two metal prongs.

I have a Crop-a-dile and I don't know how I lived without it when I was using eyelets. Its quiet, easy to use, and I don't have to use a TON of pressure to use it. Also I've used it to cut extra belt- holes and it cut the leather like buttah Cheesy

I found this site which may help you out:
and also a video explaining the Crop-a-dile and how to use it
