Press studs

Postby livvybee » Sun Sep 18, 2011 12:38 am

I'm after starting doing my own nappies - can someone tell me where and what I should buy with regards to snap presses?! As I had a look and uh oh completely confuddled lol :-? Am in the UK so ideally a uk stockist..
Also how much roughly would I be expecting to pay?
Thanks, Kim xxx :sewing:

Unless you are looking at making a lot, then I would suggest snap pliers in preference to a snap press. Size 20 snaps seem pretty standard.
for somewhere within the UK

otherwise there are a lot of good deals on ebay

I recently bought the pliers from dummy mummy - definitely worth it!
Im just making things at home for me & the family and the odd pressie for friends.
I couldnt justify the expense of a press, but the pliers work brilliantly!

thanks :D I will def go for the pliers in that case as not planning on making a lot, just really for me (well olivia!), and also for baby clothes I make (which are also usually for me!)

thanks for the advice xx
