Default Fabric covered buttons & snap clips Q.

I have a few questions. Sorry!

1. What size fabric covered buttons do you ladies use on your snap clips?

2. Are 50mm snap clips the most common when you attach fabric buttons to them?

3. Is sewing the buttons using the metal loop on the back the best way to attach the buttons to the snap clips?

4. Where is the best source to buy all of this, including fabric?
I also need a button tool as well

thank you soooo much!

snap clips I think most girls use 36.. I don't use snap clips so I really don't know that just what I think. Also I don't know if they sew them or glue them on..

You can buy the buttons on Etsy. Most of us get ours from group buys here on the board, but I haven't seen any for awhile.

You may try using the search (right next to the new post button) and see what comes up when you type in covered buttons.

Thank you.
I spent quite a bit of time last night trying to find brown snap clips with either the hole, or the glue pad. Nothing.

On a side question, will the snap clips with the glue pads work well for gluing fabric covered buttons too?

I use both the smaller snap clips and larger ones. I use size 60 buttons and I get mine here

http://www.craftersvision.com/produc...-12-12-060.htm

shipping is fast and they will refund you the difference if shipping out another method is cheaper. Customer service is really good as well.

I personally open up my snap clips and hot glue them with really hot hot glue on the end....I have had no issues with them as I use them on my own daughter and I live in TX and it is REALLY hot here and I have left them in the car and they do not come undone. HTH!

if I dont open the snaps first they pop off...if I attach them while the snap is open and wait until dry to close I had no problem, I personally cannot stand the smell of E6000....it seems to take weeks for the horrible smell to go away.
