Snaps are one of my favorite closures. They’re small yet sturdy and snaps don’t get stuck on things like velcro. Babyville Snaps are also very easy to open and close.
With a new granddaughter, I’ve used them on several recent projects and thought I share just how easy they are to insert on just about anything. Don’t have a little on in your life? Plastic snaps are great on so many projects, not just ones for kids!
What You’ll Need to Apply Babyville Snaps:
For best results: Test first on several layers of fabric.
1. Mark the placement of snaps on your project.
2. Use awl to make a small hole in the fabric.
3. Insert the prong of the snap cap into hole and place the socket over prong.
3. Position the pliers with cap in black die tray and socket under rubber pressing head.
4. Make sure the cap is centered and seated in the die tray. Squeeze pliers firmly to secure.
5. Repeat with the second cap and stud.
