Instructions:

1.  Download the Bandana Bib PDF Pattern.  Print out the pattern making sure the 1″ square in the corner measures 1″ square when printed that will indicate the pattern is the right size.

2.  Cut out the pattern.

3.  Place your pattern, with long straight side on fabric folded in half, and pin in place.

4.  Cut the 2 pieces of Fabric you will use.

5.  Place Fabrics right sides together.

6.  Pin together.

7.  Sew pieces together with a 1/4″ seam allowance, back stitching at the start  and finish of sewing, make sure to leave a 3-4″ gap so that you can pull the piece right side out.

8.  Pull piece right side out and make sure to push all the round and square corners out until they lay flat.

9.  Fold in the opening’s seams and pin in place.

10.  Stitch a finish stitch 1/8″ to 1/4″ all the way around the bib, making sure to ease your way around the left and right tabs.  I do a couple stitches, stop, then lift the foot, turn the fabric slightly, put the foot down, and do a couple more stitches and repeat.  Make sure the back stitch at the beginning and end of your sewing.

11.  Use the template to mark the KAM Snap placement, you many want to check the measurement of your child’s neck and adjust the pattern or snap placement accordingly.  This bib worked for a toddler but with an extra set of snaps can work for more sizes.

12.  I decided as I was getting ready to install the KAM Snaps to go with our new Heart Shaped snaps.  Install the Heart Shaped KAM Snap Cap and Stud in the left and a Cap and Socket on the right tab.

I Like Big Buttons! How To Repair a Bra with KAM Plastic Snaps

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.

I have now modified all my bras, I find the KAM Snap closures easier to snap and release. Quicker to put on, quicker to get off with a good strong hold.

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

Supplies:

KAM Snaps Bra Repair

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.

3.  Install the snap.

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.
