Snaps?

purse

My new purse I’m working on…..

I’m now at the place where you add some type of closure to the opening.  I decided the best way to do this was to buy some snap pliers and add snaps.  HA!

This is what snaps look like, I know you probably know this already, but I added just for reference…

I got my screw driver and I somehow managed to remove them without tearing my fabric….. I snapped again…..

I called my Mom, who was always a very talented seamstress in the day.  Before she decided she was too old to sew…

She said she didn’t know what to tell me, she had never used pliers, but some other device that worked perfectly.

Well, I wanted to finish my purse yesterday to go on in my Etsy Shop, https://www.etsy.com/people/AllBeckysCreations, but I can’t now because I’m waiting til I go to my parents house at Thanksgiving and go with Mom to the fabric store to purchase one of these perfect snap attach machines or get her to do it!

I got so flustered yesterday, I had to sit in the den and watch HGTV til dinner.  Ugh!

It’s a learning experience,  right?  I spent a lot of money on those pliers…. If you know how to use them and need a pair, give me an address and I’ll mail them to you.  I’m afraid the snaps are up to you, I ruined all the ones I bought.
