    I just was gifted a Kam Snap press. I will be using them on the shirts and playsuits from the Layette pattern. I have heard that the size 20s are the best overall size but will they work well on the smaller clothing?

    I use the metal snaps, so I am not sure how the size translates to the KAM snaps, but I use size 15 for the layette.

    The placket for the Layette is not very wide, might want to check your snaps against it.

    I use size 16 in both styles of snaps.

    Thank you!! I don’t have any snaps or the dies, just the press. I think I will start with the smaller size 16.

    I have a KAM snap press and normally use size 20 snaps. However for the back of clothing and the lullaby set I am seriously considering getting the size 16 snaps as well.

    I’m planning on using sz 16 snaps, but it would depend on your fabric– the prong on regular Kam sz 16 might not be long enough for a thick or fluffy fabric. You might need to get the long-prong ones.

    Yes I used the 16s for the baby outfits. I found the 14s just a little too small and the 20s are better for bigger things.

    Wish I could use the same die for both size snaps. The snaps are pretty cheap, but I would need a die set for each size. Sigh…so many things I want.
