Tutorial: Make your own snap tape for kids’ clothes

Beth from Lemon Cadet and Project: Project shows how to make your own snap tape.  Though its possible to purchase snap tape already made, she started creating her own because it was difficult to find and not available in the width she wanted.  Making your own snap tape also allows you to set the snaps at exactly the distance you want.  Want to know how to do it?  Get the tutorial.

    awesome with the snap tape. Getting ready to have a new grandkid…a baby boy and I can see the requests for the overalls coming soon.

    And he is supposed to match his first cousins two little girls!

    Fabulous idea! Now please what weight is the twill tape you are using? I went to buy some and they said well do you want, light, medium or heavy weight twill tape. That had me stumped so I did not buy any. What weight should I buy?
    Thank you for your help,

      I haven’t ever bought twill tape by weight before! If I had to guess, I’d go for medium. Depending on how lightweight the “lightweight” is, it might not support your snaps. And the heavy weight might be too bulky for the garment. The best would be to feel each of the tapes and decide which feels right for a garment. –Anne
