How to apply Magnetic Snap Closures

Notions

(Apply before sewing your lining and outer together).

  • It's a good idea to reinforce the area of fabric (wrong side) where you are going to apply the snaps with a small square of Fusible Interfacing.
  • Mark the both the areas where you want place the snaps.
  • Make two very small slits into your markings (a stitch ripper is perfect for this job).
  • Push the prongs into the right side of your fabric.
  • Slip one of the thin metal discs over the prongs on the wrong side of the snap and then push the prongs down flat (away from each other) with your thumb.
  • Repeat steps 1-5 with the other half of the snap

How to apply Bag Feet

(Apply before sewing your lining and outer together).

  • Mark each of the 4 areas where you want to place your bag feet (not too close to the ends of the corners, you don't want the feet to be too visible).
  • Make two very small slits into your markings (a stitch ripper is perfect for this job).
  • Push the prongs into the right side of your fabric.
  • Push the prongs down flat (away from each other) with your thumb.
  • Repeat steps 1-4 with the remaining feet.
