I've been dreaming of a snap press forever. Okay, maybe not forever... but for a good few months now. :) I think of how easy it would be to whip up some cloth pads or cloth diapers if I had one of these babies. Those snaps that you put on with a hammer...while they do work... are a pain in my butt. And I end up breaking at least 3 snaps before getting one that sets right. And I've only been doing a single snap on pads, I can't imagine having to put multiple snaps on a diaper. And I DO have to make some new diapers now that there is a new babe on the way. But I still don't feel quite justified in the purchase. I would be buying it out of my allowance (my husband and I each get a bit of blow money each month -that we can spend however we wish!), but I still wonder if it's a worth-while purchase.
It costs $100.00 (Canadian!), plus taxes and shipping, so I'm probably looking at $150, all told. It includes the snap press, size 20 dies, and 500 sets of snaps. See for yourself if you'd like. I'd need to save up my allowance for a couple of months to cover the cost, or else find a way to bring in a little extra money (like from selling pads and diapers, maybe??). There are 5 more available (just a week ago there were 8!).
I think I'll have to give this some more thought. Sometimes a pregnant brain can be irrational. Does it seem excessive to spend $150.00 on something just so you can put snaps on things??
