Snap Sale at SewBaby!

It's that time of year again!  No, not Halloween or Thanksgiving, but time to stock on snaps with our biannual Snap Sale!  Take 20% off of any snap product with the coupon code SNAPS20 through 11/8/11!  In addition to the coupon, if you order 6 packages of snaps, you will qualify to get an additional $3 off for a quantity discount!  Why snaps?  They are faster than buttons, easier than zippers, and don't damage your clothes like velcro.  What is not to love? 

Our line of snaps is from the Snap Source, and we carry a HUGE range of their products.  If you are unfamiliar with the Snap Source- here are just a few of the MUST HAVE items that they manufacture.

1.  THE Snap Setter.  (Yes, I meant to capitalize the THE, because it is the only snap setter that I use!)
  The snap setter is a three part high impact plastic tool, that magically sets your snaps with just a few hits of a hammer.  The snaps come out perfect with this tool, unlike plier type tools that can let the snap parts shift in the process.  The snap setter comes in several sizes, according to what size snap you are setting.
Each snap has 4 parts- the top (which can be a cap or a ring), the socket, the stud, and the bottom ring.  The snap setter comes with instructions on how to put all of these pieces together in the right order.

2.  Open Ring Snaps.  These are the kind that when applied, look like a ring, with fabric filling in the middle.  They come in a dozen different colors, and are perfect for leg openings for baby clothes, baby bibs, pacifier holders, or anything else that you need a simple closure.

3.  Capped Snaps.  These are the kind that are solid circles, they come in a couple of dozen colors, and 5 sizes!  Size 14- the smallest- for baby and doll clothes.  Size 15- for infant and toddlers.  Size 16-the most popular size- for toddlers and up, size 20- when you need a larger snap, and size 24- the largest- great for adult fleece coats!
There are so many colors to choose from, that it can be overwhelming.  That's why we have them in assortments so that you can try several colors from just one package.

4.  Pearl Snaps.  These have a metallic outer ring that is filled in with a pearlized center  Beautiful!  You see these on Western wear a lot, but I think think they look great on girls' clothing as well.

So, take advantage of this great sale and stock up!  Remember, the coupon code is SNAPS20 and it is good only until 11/8/11!  Our experience is that some colors do sell out quickly, so don't wait until the last minute if you have a particular color preference.



  1. Cannot do without them! I just hate that I rush ordered 6 pkgs the day before yesterday, and now they're on sale!

What to Wear in Madagascar

To be honest, I have no idea what to wear in Madagascar, and this title may need to be changed to "what NOT to wear in Madagascar" in a few months.  We will have to wait and see.  My 22 year old daughter, Alyssa, left for the Peace Corps this week, and she will be stationed in Madagascar for the next 2 years and 3 months.  Yes, you read that right- TWO YEARS and three months!!! We are very proud of her for wanting to help make the world a better place, and for being fearless in doing so, but it will be a looooong time for Mama and Papa back home. Not knowing anything about Madagascar, the first step in figuring out what to pack was to figure out the weather and the cultural norms.  Madagascar is a very large island off the southeastern coast of Africa.  It's very, very unique in it's ecosystem, and has many species that are not found anywhere else in the world- most famously lemurs. Right now, it is experiencing it's rainy season, as you can see by the

Vogue 9305 Asymmetrical Tunics

It's April and we're expecting snow tonight.  Have we switched hemispheres?  Nevertheless, I am sewing with visions of warm sunny days.  And for those warm sunny days to come, I imagine sitting in the shade with a light breeze flowing through the air, enjoying a light beverage with friends.  Just close your eyes and you can imagine too.  What would you be wearing?  Well,  I love a dramatic asymmetrical tunic made of the softest linen.  As luck would have it, I found just the fabric in the "As Is" section in Fabric Mart's sales category.  With just some irregular dye marks on the selvage, it was marked down, but still completely usable.  It started out as a solid color, but I did an ombre dip dye process to get this look- more on that later! For my pattern, I chose Vogue 9305 , a tunic with a shaped hemline, and two styles of pants (I didn't make the pants).   This pattern must be the biggest bang for your time possible.  The tunic went tog

Style Arc Dotty Blouse and Burda 6879 Skinny Pants

Listen children.  It's time for a sewing story.  Sit by the fire with me, and I'll tell you the story of how three flat, lifeless pieces of fabric became my new favorite winter outfit. With a little help from the elves at FabricMart, Burda, and Style Arc, I whipped up this outfit just in time for the holidays. Chapter 1.  The Dotty Blouse Silk charmeuse.  Aahhhh.  Just the thought of it brings me bliss.  Is there anything so light as a feather, shimmery as a star, fluid as a mountain stream?  All wrapped up in one glorious fabric.  Sometimes I look at the prices of clothes in the stores, and wonder "Why am I sewing? ".  But one touch of silk charmeuse and I remember. This is the stuff that you can't buy a top made from for less than $200, but you can make it for $50 or less. When I saw this stylized animal print silk charmeuse at FabricMart, I grabbed up 3 yards of it right away.  One of silk charmeuse's best qualities is it's drapa
