(BWOF photo from website)
This jacket has taught me a lot about my skills or lack thereof. I've decided to walk away from it and figure out how to press it nicely. The fabric shows all pressing issues- yuck!
Almost ready for the military in this pic.
This shows the covered snaps nicely.
Still needs pressing.
It looks a little pink in the photo- poor lighting.
Here are a few pictures of the snaps and how to cover them.
First, cut the fabric about twice the size of the snap. I applied Fray-Check to the center where it was to be cut out for the snap portion.
I then added a rough running stitch around the perimeter. As you can see, the center is cut out for the snap portion- keep it small.
I used snaps that were about 1" in diameter. Nice size and easy to work with.
