I may never make another buttonhole again! I just discovered the wonder of snaps after purchasing the awesome SnapSetter tool from SnapSource.com. This ingenious little invention is simple in design, easy to use, inexpensive and foolproof. That is the quadrafecta (new word) of bliss for moi.
So, what better welcome to my sewing world could I give the little SnapSetter other than using it to adorn my November Archer? I could think of no better christening.
The biggest dilemma I had was choosing which color pearl snaps to order. My fabric has so many wonderful fall colors in it the decision was a bit daunting but I settled on trying to match the contrast fabric that I used on the bands and undercollar:
I went out on a limb and ordered "Peacock Blue" hoping I wouldn't wince when I opened the package. They are perfect!
This proved to me that the color charts on the SnapSource website are fairly accurate. When I place my next order I may buy one of their complete sample sets that gives you 1 snap in every color they offer.
I aspire to someday be a perfect topstitcher like JStarr4250 but I'm not there yet. I figure I might be after finishing 5 more Archers.
Oh, I almost forgot the Archer. Well, I'm not sure what else to say about it that hasn't already been said. I did review it here. I love it, the fabric is me, me, me but the takeaway I want to leave you with is GET SNAPS!
