30 Days of Snaps!!! Day #29: How to make a vest for a Stuffed Animal with KAM Snaps and Holey Jeans

Day #29

Today’s KAM Snap tutorial is courtesy of my older boys.  All creative credit goes to them.  One day, I gave my oldest son a couple legs off some holey jeans that I turned into jean shorts to be creative with.  He made one of his brothers this fun little tube vest.  His brother was very appreciative but thought it could be better.  So he cut the vest down the front and brought it to me asked for some snaps.  I said,”Sure, what color?”  To which he replied,”Orange (not a shock as that is his color of choice), oh, and Mom do you have them in star shapes?”  Why yes I do, 16 brand new colors to be exact! 🙂
