Pronged Stud Tutorial: Stackable KAM Plastic Snaps by I Like Big Buttons! August 19 2020

Pronged studs enable snap stacking. They take the place of a cap and allow your item to be snapped from both sides. While typically used to make a double-sided snap, they can be daisy-chained.

They are available in as few as 25, 100, and 1000 pieces.

Pronged Studs pic3

Here is a simple tutorial to show the versatility of Pronged Studs.

Supplies:

1. Plan your layered flower, insert the Snap Cap through the first layer and back it with a socket. Form the KAM plastic snap.

2. Insert a Pronged Stud through the second layer and back it with a stud. Form the Pronged Stud and Stud together using the pronged stud die into the bottom of your press, and stud die into the top of your press.

3. Insert a Pronged Stud through the third layer and back it with a socket. Form the Pronged Stud and Socket together using the pronged stud die into the bottom of your press, and socket die into the top of your press.

4. Insert the Snap Cap through the fourth layer and back it with a socket. Form the KAM plastic snap.

5. Now snap all the layers together and enjoy!

6. Tada! Below is a close up for how they stack together. Pronged studs enable snap stacking. They take the place of a cap and allow your item to be snapped from both sides. While typically used to make a double-sided snap, they can be daisy-chained infinitely.

Pronged Studs:

A stud or socket can be installed on the other side of the pronged stud. Just insert the pronged stud die into the bottom of your press, and the socket or stud die into the top of your press.

Face Mask with Scrunchy Earpieces Using KAM Plastic Snaps Tutorial by ILikeBigButton.com April 23 2020

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

As a precaution, I have been making our family some face masks. Nothing fancy, I was limited to what supplies I had on hand. I made a mask with Elastic earlier, this one will be with ribbon ties.

So with some fabric scraps, ribbon (they mentioned you could use shoelaces as an option), sewing clips, and my trusting sewing machine, I found a set of instructions and struck out.

Here is the #1 version and #2 version I made:

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/blogs/news/face-mask-with-ribbon-using-sewing-clips-tutorial-by-ilikebigbutton-com

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

Supplies:

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

1. Cut out 2x 9.5" x 6.5" fabric rectangles and 2x 2" x 12" fabric rectangles.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

2. Iron the 2"x12" in half making a 1"x 12" fabric strip with right side facing in. Make 2.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

3. Sew 1/4" seam along the long side (12" long seam) and turn then the tube right side out. Iron smooth.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

4. Fish a 7" piece of elastic through the tube, I used a sewing clip to keep the back end of the elastic from getting lost in the tube. Pin the elastic level with the end of the tube. It should start to scrunch up some. The tube is 12" long and the elastic is 7" long.  Tuck the fabric into the tube without losing the elastic (use a second pin to keep in place) and sew the finished end of the earpiece that will be exposed. Make 2.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

5. With the right side of 9.5" x 6.5" fabric facing up, pin the 2 fabric and elastic earpieces to the bottom corners. Like so.

6. Pin the second piece of 9.5" x 6.5" fabric facing down to the fabric with the earpieces tucked safely inside. Make sure the earpieces don't get caught in the edges while sewing.

7. Sew a 1/4" seam starting about 1/2 way on the long side. Go all the way around the perimeter, stopping when you have about 1.5" to 2" left. Make sure to go back and forth at each of the corners to anchor the ribbon. Leave that gap so that you can turn the face mask right side out.

8. Turn the mask right side out and iron it flat.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

9. Make three pleats lengthwise, like you are folding a paper fan. I eyed it and used the sewing clip width as my pleat measurer, but if I was making more than a handful of these, I would make myself a template to make this part easier. The pleats help the mask form around the wearer’s face. Secure each pre-sewn pleat with a sewing clip as pictured above.

10. Now sew a 1/4"  stitch around the outer perimeter of the mask face, going back and forward over the corners to add more stability to the ribbon.

11. Then, top stitch a second time around the outer edge about 1/4" in from the first round of stitching.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

12. Using your KAM Plastic Snap Pliers and KAM Plastic Snaps add a snap to the upper edge of the mask and the end of the loose earpiece.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

13. Tada! You have a finished face mask. This was my husband's favorite because the elastic didn't rub and pull at his ears. I added a second KAM Plastic Snap in pink to each side to make the mask work better with my face.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

*Afterthoughts, this mask was the perfect size for my husband, but I added another KAM Plastic Snap an inch in for me on the scrunchy earpiece. This also worked for my teens, but I will need to adjust for my smaller kiddos. This mask seems best sized for teens to adults.

I Like Big Buttons! Fun Facts: How We Prepare Our Plastic Snaps And Why October 28 2019

For all our new friends and followers of I Like Big Buttons!, it seemed like a great time to introduce you to our amazing Plastic Snaps!!!  For those of you who have been with us for a long time, here is a refresher.

We carry a variety of package deals for our snaps from 10 sets, 25 sets, 100 sets up to thousands of KAM snaps with and without pliers or professional press all at a great price. We have a listing for just about everyone at the price range and quantity you desire.

Our 25 packs sets came to be largely for cloth diapers, but over the last decade, they have become our most popular quantity for both our cloth diaper makers and our embroidery, snap tab making, and general sewing customers.

We provide the best of both worlds, smaller packs to those that want greater variety and larger packs for those looking to use snaps in bulk.

 

Some of the other these reasons we offer these great options include:

* An equally large demand for “just a sampling of every color”, which gave birth to our sets of 10 and Starter Packs.

* We also offer individual parts in quantities of 100 and 1000 in all of KAM Plastic Snaps 130+ colors.

If you aren't sure how to jump into plastic snaps, we also carry starter packs including multi-packs of 10 or 25 sets of snaps.  If you are new to snapping, we have starter packs with plastic snap pliers, awl, and an instructional DVD.  These Starter Packs are a great way to get addicted :).  We have 18 preset themes including Rainbow Spectrum, Pastel Spectrum, Vibrant Boy, Vibrant Girl, Patriotic, Military, and many others.

Check out our convenient Starter Packs:

We also offer an option to choose your own colors.  You can pick from any of KAM Plastic Snaps 130+ fun colors. Have you taken a moment to check out our easy to navigate KAM Snap Visual Ordering Chart!?!

"No Sew" KAM Plastic Snaps Backpack Embellishments by ILikeBigButtons.com August 28 2019

My kiddos wanted a little embellishment on their backpacks this year so that they could tell theirs from the sea of backpacks at school. Simple, "No Sew", and I was able to customize each kiddo's backpack to match their personality. KAM plastic snaps to the rescue!

Mr. J wanted his backpack in his favorite color: Orange! He picked Size 20 KAM Plastic Snaps - B52 - Dark Orange.

Mr. M likes a little pizzazz in his wardrobe and his backpack is no exception. He picked Size 20 KAM Plastic Snaps - G96 -Mirror (Round shaped) and Star-Shaped KAM Plastic Snaps - G124 - Robin's Egg Blue.

Miss E is all about love. She chose Heart-Shaped KAM Plastic Snaps in G99 - Lilac and G96 - Mirror.

Adding Button Enclosure to Sweatpants Pocket with KAM Plastic Snaps by ILikeBigButtons.com July 22 2019

I love my slouchy sweatpants for getting work done around the house, but their comfortable pockets are useless when for holding onto my phone when I am talking to my sister while we clean via wireless headsets. :) KAM plastic snaps to the rescue! I turned my useless slouch pocket into a secure button enclosed, phone holding pocket in just a few seconds with KAM plastic snaps.

Supplies:

I used some fun colored snaps from the KAM plastic snaps Grab Bag making bucket. 

Easy Peasy, I wore my phone around all day while I cleaned and worked. It was secure the whole time and with a quick unsnapping on hand when I needed it. KAM plastic snaps are the BEST! 

Tada! I can see tons of hand-free cleaning in my future without fear that my phone will fall out of my pocket while I am moving.

How To Make A KAM Plastic Snap Cord Keeper/Organizer by ILikeBigButtons.com February 05 2019

Cords, cords, cords!!! Despite my husband's best efforts to make our house wireless, there are cords everywhere. Part of the joy of being a mom of many, I suppose. 😜 Everyone has one or more somethings that need to be charged and my husband makes sure there are enough cords so that no one is left crying. Have I mentioned he is my resident computer wiz? A job he proudly takes on.

So with cords abounding in my life and house, I decided we needed a better way to manage them all. Here are the results of my efforts. Cord keepers/organizers to simplify my life and corral the cords we can't live without. 🤪

Supplies:

Instructions:

1. Cut out your material of choice, I used Marine Vinyl I had left over from a summer project. I cut each piece approximately 5.25" x 2" and gave them two different styles of finished ends. One is a pointed end, I used my quilting square to accomplish this, and the other has a rounded end, I used a small drinking cup to create the rounded tip. *The cords I was making these for were 6' cords, you may need to adjust the length of your cord keeper to accommodate a larger or smaller cord.

2. Place the two pieces of Marine Vinyl with wrong sides together and pin with Sewing Clips, if desired. Straight stitch with a 1/4" seam around the whole piece using a back stitch at the beginning and end to set the stitch. 

3. Trim the edges down to 1/8" to remove the excess vinyl and any uneven edges. The Marine Vinyl can slip a little bit when you are sewing and I found this was the easiest way to get a clean edge.

4. Measure to the center at the top and bottom of each cord keeper/organizer and place a mark where you want your KAM Plastic Snap to sit. I don't like to eye it as I often find them off-center when I wing it.

5. Poke a hole through the centered mark with your KAM Awl and insert the KAM Plastic Snap Cap prong through the hole. You will want the cap on the top side (the side that was up when sewing) of your cord keeper and the socket or stud on the bottom side.

6. Flip the cord keeper over and add the socket.  Install the KAM Plastic Snap Cap and Socket on the edge that is rounded or pointed and a Cap and Stud on the square edge as pictured below.

7. Remember to install the snaps so that one half (Cap and Stud) are face up and one (Cap and Socket) are face down so that when you fold the cord keeper around the cord, the socket and stud meet.

8. Tada! These cord keepers/organizers take only minutes to make with scraps of vinyl/fabric, a few KAM Plastic Snaps, and are already making my life feel less crazy. At least until they all get home from school. 😜

KAM Snap Upcycled Jean Christmas Ornaments by ILikeBigButtons.com December 05 2018

Today I decided a need a few Upcycled Jean Christmas Trees. As I have mentioned in the past, finding jeans destine for the scrap pile is no problem with a house full of rambunctious kiddos. These cute trees also remind me of some that my parents had when we were growing up.

Supplies:

  • A set of holey Jeans
  • Star KAM Snaps
  • KAM Snap Pliers and Awl
  • Fabric of your choice (I picked Christmasy colored cotton fabric)
  • Ribbon
  • Quilt Batting or Pillow Stuffing
  • Fabric Adhesive
  • Standard Sewing Machine
  • Scissors

1.  Make a simple Christmas Tree template and trace on your jean fabric with a permanent marker.

2.  Make pairs of each tree so that you have a front and back for each tree. You could also use felt or fabric on the back to extend the impact of your jean fabric.

3.  Cut the Christmas Tree template down. I took about a 1/2" on each side/angle. Make a Fabric Christmas Tree silhouette for each Jean Christmas Tree.

4.  Use a Fabric Adhesive to adhere the Christmas Tree silhouettes to the fronts sides of the Jean Christmas Trees.

5.  Use a decorative stitch to outline the Upcycled Jean Christmas Trees on two sides. Then fill with quilt batting or pillow filling.

6.  Finish stitching along the bottom swoop of the Christmas Tree. Add a loop of decorative ribbon and a Star KAM Plastic Snap to the top of the Christmas Tree.

Additional Crafty Ideas:

  • You could add multiple cuts along the edges of the trees to add more character.
  • Or you could fray the edges of the trees.
  • You could give the trees finished edges, but that wasn't the look I was personally going for.
  • You could add KAM Snaps; both Star, Heart, and Round shaped into the body of the tree to represent ornaments or twinkling lights.

7.  Tada! I think they turned out great and add a great pop of color to our Christmas Tree.

I Like Big Buttons! Upcycled Messenger Bag/Purse Tutorial November 09 2018

We are a cat loving family here at I Like Big Buttons. As such, we have a few fluffy friends scurrying around. Recently, my husband picked up a few bags of cat food that not only were made of a more durable material than the paper bags ones but also had cute kitty images on them. I couldn't resist turning them into some cute messenger bags for a couple of my little cat lovers. :)

How to make an Upcycled/Recycled Messenger Bag/Purse with KAM Snaps and Pet Food Bag

Supplies:

  • Pet Food Bag of your choice (Look for the ones made of woven plastic)
  • Marine Vinyl or a material of your choice
  • 2 KAM Snap Sets (Depending on the thickness of the material you may want Long Prong)
  • KAM Snap Pliers and Awl
  • 1″ Cotton Webbing
  • Scissors/Rotary Blade
  • Standard Sewing Machine

1.  Cut the bag along the seams. I plan on making 2 bags with it. For this project, I am focusing on making each bag with a kitty image front and center. Use a damp cloth to wipe the leftover cat food crumbs from the interior of the bags and let air dry. This doesn't take more than a few minutes.

2.  Decide on your shape. I like to craft off the cuff. This lid of a storage container was just the right size and shape to showcase the kitty image. Trace around it with a marker.

3.  I picked the height based on the image. I left a 1" above each kitty image. *If I did it again, I might do 2" or 3" instead. As you will see later, the flap of the bag covers some of the image. If I had dropped it another inch I think it would have looked slightly better when snapped closed.

4.  Cut 2 pieces of Marine Vinyl or material of your choice the same size at the kitty images. I had some vinyl left over from a summer chair reupholstering product. I love it because the color goes nicely with the kitty image and it is durable.

5.  Cut two flaps for the messenger bags. I cut them the same width as the bags and longer than I thought I would need so I could adjust on the fly.

6. Using a 1/2" seam sew the kitty image to the front piece of Marine Vinyl, right sides together. I chose to put the Marine Vinyl front to the front so that the interior of the bag was uniform, but you could turn the right side of the Marine Vinyl inward so that it was to the inside of the bag. Sewer's choice. :)

7.  Fold the sewed seam flat and smooth. Then, fold it until the kitty image is right side out. Smooth the sewed seam and Marine Vinyl.

8.  Sew 1/4" seam along the top of the finished edge.

9.  Fold the top edge of the back piece of the bag over a 1/2". Sew 1/4" seam along the edge, creating a finished edge.

10.  For the top flap, I created a simple square with three finished edges. Marine Vinyl is durable and the raw edges hold up nicely. If using another material, you will have to give consideration to the material you are using and adjust accordingly. The messenger bag/purse will be about 8" wide when finished so I made the flaps slightly smaller at 7.75".  *If I did it again, I might have shaved off a little bit more to give the shoulder strap more room to fill.

11.  I, then, cut the height of the flap down to 3" because I wanted to see as much of the kitty image as I could after the KAM plastic snap was installed.

12.  Align and use a zigzag stitch to attach the flap to the back piece of the purse. Make sure to center it.

13.  Put right sides together and sew the 2 sides and bottom of the purse with a 3/8" to 1/2" seam. Make sure to use a Stay Stitch the beginning and end of your sewing so that the stitches stay put.

14.  Turn the bags right side out and square the corners as much as possible. I used the backside of a Sharpie marker to help square the corners. Remember I slightly rounded them so they won't be perfectly square. Smooth bags flat.

15.  Measure the center of the flap and use a KAM awl to poke a hole for the KAM plastic snap that you will adding. I am only going through 1 layer of Marine Vinyl so a Standard Prong snap will work. If you are using thicker material or multiple layers, I would recommend our Long Prong KAM plastic snaps.

16.  Install KAM plastic snap (Cap and Socket).

17.  Repeat in front of the bag, where KAM plastic snap lines up. I poked the hole through both layers at once so that I had a point of reference. Then I widened the hole after double-checking the placement of the internal hole. Install KAM plastic snap (Cap and Stud).

18.  I think they turned out super cute! Now to add shoulder straps.

19.  For the sake of time and my sanity, I simply attached the shoulder straps with a half of a KAM snap set (Cap and Socket). I used the snap like a rivet. I also used Long Prong KAM plastic snaps for this piece because I was working with the thickness of the Marine Vinyl and Cotton Webbing. *I doubled the edge of the Cotton Webbing over on itself and sewed a straight line back and forth across it a half dozen times so it doesn't unravel.  With Polyester Webbing, you could melt the edge to secure it.

20.  Tada!!! I think they turned out great, it took less than 2 hours to make both of them, and my little cat lovers are ecstatic. They have a new place to store their treasures.
