skinny pink studs ;)

Post by ditto » Wed Jan 10, 2007 10:57 am

My pastel pink studs seem to fall out of the die all the time before I can get the fabric under them. The other colours are fine. They are size 20 like the others - so it's not that. Any ideas for making them stick?

I had some navy ones that did this that I got from Serena in China. I let her know and she sent me a replacement die set which had an extra bit of the rubbery yellowed stuff on it which gripped the edge of the snap. I got the impression that there were a few studs which had suffered from this problem.

bluetack?
I'm sure once they have snapped on they would come unstuck from the bluetack, just not sure if it would get on the fabric and cause problems that way.

isn't there some spray on fabric glue stuff you can get, temporary hold for appliqué and quilting?? Maybe that might work (don't know if it would stick plastic to metal)

Hmm. Maybe I could get Braden to hold them in place for me :wink:
He's always nicking off with the bottom die piece - lucky I have two of them.

Yup my pastel pink do that too. It's a pain in the butt, but I stick a hole in the fabric with an awl (do other people do this?) before I snap, so I put the cap thru the fabric, put that in the bottom die peice, then put the stud over the sharp bit, then snap :) Saves finger pinching :)

HTH and makes sense :oops:

That's a good idea - I'd be a wee bit scared that they wouldn't line up properly though and I'd squash the wrong bit (did that once).

I just give them a good push and hope they stay there while I line it up. I can only be bothered making a hole first if it's really thick fabric and the pointy bit won't go through (usually after wasting a couple of caps trying first!)
