Free cookbooks & cheap snaps
My cookbook winners are Becca (yup, her cookbook was definitely the ugliest!) and commenter #20 Sharon. Email me your address, ladies, and I will get free copies of Family Feasts headed your direction first thing Monday!
In other news, I just had to share a picture of the diapers I’ve made lately. These are mostly newborn and small sized, mostly boys with a few pink ones in there to cover all the bases. I’ve been having so much fun!
There was a bit of discussion about snaps in the comments on my how to sew a diaper post. I’d mentioned that I was using my sister’s industrial-quality snap press, which is a spendy item. Looking online last week for more snap colors, I found this deal on Kamsnaps.com: a hand-held snap press and 100 each of 3 different colors of snaps for $33.95. I wasn’t sure how well this smallish press would work. But I figured it was worth a try, especially since I was also getting 300 snaps.
When it came, I gave it a whirl. And broke three snaps in a row. Ugh. I went to the website and watched the videos on the website. Turns out I had the wrong size attachment for my size of snap. Once I changed it out (using a part that came with the press), lo and behold, it worked wonderfully. You don’t even have to change attachments for the two sides of the snap, which is a nice time saver. If you’re looking for an affordable snap press, you might want to give that one a try. But do be sure to watch the online videos. Then you won’t waste your first three snaps like I did.
