That was great! I’ll have to go out and get a hole cutter set. I’ve been looking for eyes to put on a perch pattern I’m developing, but I didn’t want to spend money just to find out they’re the wrong size. This should help

i watched this a few weeks ago might give it a whirl. Was trying to find a better way then using punches with a hammer and found leather hole punches on ebay. They rotate 6 different sizes, problem is they rotate from 1.5mm to 4.5mm which I don't think would be big enough larger streamers.

One of these works as well or better than a die set and is much cheaper.

I bought the stuff and gave it a whirl. It seemed to work pretty well. For those of you who have used these eyes. How do they hold up? I was able to stick these on a popper and they were able to form around the radius and stick pretty well.
