How to Sew on Snaps
When you buy a snap, it will be pressed together between the packaging; to remove it, pull the front and back of the snap apart in opposite directions, then position your project with a sharp sewing pin or fabric marker so the layers are where you want them.
Sew through each hole in the snap at least 5 times to secure it to the fabric. Sew the socket piece onto the top layer of fabric so it can come into contact with the bottom of the snap. To make a pouch with an opening that folds over, thread a needle with at least 1 foot (30cm) of thread and tie a knot at the end. For snaps that really stand out, pick a bold thread color that pops.
