Red Snappers - attaching to leaders

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I have just purchased some red snappers for my 2013 Millie, and remember seeing "somewhere" a Youtube instruction video about making the casings with a long arm, on the canvas leaders. It looked simple, but because I did not save the site, it is now difficult without help. Any ideas and/or instructions to follow? All help/hints are welcome. Thanks to all.

Set up your featherweight machine on your ironing board under the leader and "schooch" the machine and board along you stitch.

 

As regards to how much to turn under etc.  Renee has that in the instructions with them unless yours are 2nd hand.

I already had my zippers on my machine, so instead of re-inventing the wheel, I just made small leaders that are the width of my existing leaders (144") and about a foot long.  I sewed the quilt zipper to one side and made the tube for the new thing (I have leader grips instead of red snappers, but same thing), on the other.  Zipped it on to the machine, and there they have stayed ever since.  Probably the easiest way to do it.
