10 products every vinyl crafter needs

When working with faux leather vinyl there are hundreds of amazing notions and tools you can use, but we have compiled the top ten must haves

1. Eyelets

I prefer eyelet sets that give you many color options and include a setting tool

2. Rivets

Rivets ad such a classy element to even the simplest projects

3. Awl

I prefer to have multiple low cost awls in case i lose one. I prefer these

4. Cheap scissors and high quality scissors (and why!)

It is best to utilize low cost (1.99 ish) scissors to do most of the vinyl trimming and then come in with a higher quality pair for the detail cuts 

5. Lighter

A lighter is useful in cleaning up the edges of the faux leather as well as loose threads. It is a wonderful finishing tool. 

6. Key rings

Key rings are a useful and affordable way to make lots of products for sale or personal use

9. Crop a dile or eyelet setter 

Crop a diles are the best eyelet setters in my opinion, they cleanly punch a hole to make the eyelet set perfectly

10. Exacto knife

Exactos work where scissors can not reach, they are a small investment into an ease of creating
