Dritz Eyelets & Other Sewing Supplies Here’s a closer look at the Dritz® eyelets and elastic that are used to make the boot covers.

Tip: notice the Dritz® eyelet pliers? If you’ve got a pair in your stash, they come in handy for making the eyelet holes in the fabric (and if not, scissors work great, too). You’ll apply these particular eyelets with a hand tool.
