Sewing & Crafts | Closings | Covered Snaps

Special Finishing Details

COVERED SNAPS

  • Covered Snaps Cut circles of lightweight fabric, which are about double the diameter of each snap. Make a small hold in the center so that the snaps will snap closed.
  • Run a basting stitch around the edge of the fabric. Place half of the snap in the center and use hand-basting stitches to gather the fabric snuggly around the snap. Secure the fabric on the wrong side.
  • Stitch the snap to the garment in the usual way. You'll be able to find the holes in the snap with your needle.

 


MEN'S HORIZONTAL DR. COOL SHIRT
This shirt is constructed using Coolcore's patented chemical-free moisture and sweat activated material to make sweat work for you. Rather than a simple wicking technology, the material delivers three distinct functions: wicking, moisture circulation, and regulated evaporation to reduce the fabric's surface temperature by up to 30%. Unlike other workout shirts Dr. Cool is chemical-free so that cooling benefits last the life of the shirt.

KATHMANDU ARCHON 65L BACKPACK v4
If you're new to multi-day hiking, or enjoy tackling the occasional Great Walk, the 65L Archon is the pack for you: sturdy and reliable, made from tough Cordura® fabric, it has everything you need (bottle pockets, pole and bed-roll attachments) and nothing you don't. The easily adjustable RS2 harness has a small to XL range built in to the harness design. The padded and stiffened hip-belt and shaped alloy frame-stays transfer the load where it needs to be, while the padded EVA shoulder straps, adjustable sternum straps and padded back panel makes the trek over the Tongariro Crossing more comfortable.
