Well, it was a trick that I learned from someone else and I gave it a try....here's what it looks like when I'm actually stitching:
The reason I do it is:
- If I have to move my Q-snap around, I feel it protects my other stitches and they won't get smooshed
- The primary reason I use it though is because it keeps the fabric *very* taut - and if it does slip, you just give the the "snaps" a little twist and it's back to being really taut
The colored "fabric" on the Q-snaps is just 10 cents craft felt....nothing special, I just buy it and cut it into strips and there ya go...instant tautness! Now if only my Oil of Olay worked as well!
Give it a try you Q-snap lovers....you'll never go back to naked snap stitching ;)
Until next time......
