Invisible Snaps Tutorial

Invisible Snaps.  Can you see them?




I finally figured out a way to make dresses without having to use buttons!  I don't like the way snaps look but I love the ease of them so I decided to try and cover the snaps with fabric and it worked.  Yea! 

First I cut a circle out about 3 sizes larger than the snap



Then I wrapped the fabric around the decorative prong and put it in the rubber ring.  After that I followed the directions for my plier kit.  I have the Dritz plier kit that works with several sizes. 



And when I was finished I had what looked like beautiful fabric covered buttons!


I hope this makes someones day like it did mine!

  2. Ooooh- what a fabulous idea! I see many potential uses for that.
    I have never come across a 'snap tool like contraption' (technical term) as seen in your photo. I have always hated snaps because i have had to hammer them on. May i ask if it is easy to use and where do i come across buying one?? What are they called would also be a good question? Cheers!
