Fixing A Instrument Carrying Case For My Musician With KAM Snaps April 21 2022, 0 Comments
"Mom, all the zippers on my flute case are broken now." My musician held up his formerly zip-able case in one hand, his flute in his other.
KAM plastic snaps to the rescue. I went for the quick fix because there is only two months of school left. We will buy a replacement case next school year if he continued with band.
I sewed two tabs out of double-sided marine vinyl and zigzag stitched them to the top of the soft case. Then, with Long Prong Size 20 KAM plastic snaps, I attached a tab to each side of the case, so that my musician can snap and unsnap the case easily.
Because my musician is an active kiddo, a track team member and an all-round busy boy, I wanted a second layer of defense for his flute.
With the same marine vinyl, I made 4x 1" double-layered bands and zigzag stitched them to the bottom inside of the case in sets to meet across the top of the flute's hard case. Finally, I attached a Long Prong Size 20 KAM plastic snap set to each side and SNAP, his flute is secure.
Tada! Problem solved!
