30 Days of Snaps!!! Day #4

Day #4

Today, I tackled a problem for us moms out there.  Or at least ;) those of us too busy to fish our bras out of the washer before they go in the dryer.  In all fairness to my mom, she has told me a number of times, they will last longer and work better if I air dry them.  The fact remains that if I remember to get the laundry from the washer to the dryer in the same day, I consider it a miracle :).

Besides wearing them out quicker, I have found that front loading machines like to grab the bra hooks and mangle them.  I have grown tired of the hooks poking me in the back or not hooking at all anymore.

KAM Snaps to the rescue with a seam ripper and just a couple snaps... See the picture tutorial below.

1.  Use a Seam Ripper to remove the stitches holding the Bra hooks in place.

2.  Once the hooks are removed, use the Awl to poke a hole where you want to install the snap.  I used a KAM Snap Cap and Socket on this side.

4.  I put 2 sets on the back strap for size adjustment, you could do 3 if you wanted.   I used a 2 KAM Snap Caps and 2 Studs on this side, and spaced them evenly.

5.  Tada!  Success, I am wearing it as I type.  It is much more comfortable and it was easy to snap, I was concerned considering I had to do it by feel, but it was simple to do.

Baby Got Snaps

I like big buttons and I cannot lie
You other mothers can’t deny

That when a baby crawls in with an itty bitty face
and those round things on her lace

You get smitten…

I like big buttons and I cannot lie
You other mothers can’t deny

When a baby crawls in with her sweet sweet face
and a tutu round her waist

you're in love... (2nd verse - Courtesy of Libby B.)

I like big buttons and I cannot lie
You other mothers can’t deny

That when your baby stomps through with mud on his shoe
and chocolate on his face

I am besotten... (3rd verse - me again :))
