I got a new toy, I mean, tool last week and finally took it out of the packaging for a test drive. It’s my very own Dritz Pliers! You know, for adding snaps to all my craft projects, in a snap, of course!
Many thanks goes to Annie Rose’s online tutorial from Cowgirl Snaps for helping me avoid any frustration that these pliers would have encumbered upon me. After carefully reading, and re-reading the tutorial, I’m feeling confident that I can snap together anything!
I smartly practiced my new tool on some scrap fabric first. My first (half) snap came out a little wonky. I persisted, re-read the tutorial, and went a little more slowly with the second snap.
That one came out much better; however, I realized I could go back to my original snap, ply again, and get it to straighten out a little bit. Actually, enough to look good!
The little nubby part of the snap (the other half) went in perfectly. Third time’s a charm! I can’t wait to order some snaps from Cowgirl Snaps on Etsy and add snaps to everything! <evil laugh>
