Other Uses for KAM Snaps- No Sew Sham Closure!

I made two square pillowcase shams for my feather couch fillows about 4 years ago.  I has very little of the fabric and I made the pattern myself just by eyeballing it.  I’m far  from good at sewing and truth be told I am still amazed what I made has been functional.  The only noticeable OOPS was that I didn’t give myself enough fabric to fit over the back and there has always been a giant opening where you can see the pillow.  I have no earthly idea how to sew a button and make a buttonhole.  I tried reading my sewing machine manual and my eyes crossed.  Last week brilliance struck when I remembered the KAM Snap pliers and left over snaps I had after converting a few bumGenius 3.0’s from velcro to snaps.  I also ended up fixing a busted snap on my Hushamok Hammock before Ev was born.  This thing is handy!  I bet if you have used snap pliers for a cloth diaper project you also have some extra laying around!

Here is my 3 minute No Sew Sham Closure.  I know the Ribbit Green isn’t exactly a perfect match but they were left over and I plan on keeping them facing the back of the couch!  

I bet there are even more creative things you can do with your KAM Snap Pliers than just snapping diapers…..  what have you used your snap pliers or snap press for?  I’m looking for more ideas!
