I desperately need help! I have a fashion show next week and I'm stuck on how to fix four part pop/press studs onto my fabric. I have a Prym poppas and pliers set, kindly given to me by my lecturer but theres no instructions. Does anyone know how to do this?.....I need pictures or a tutorial!!!
I'm running out of time and going mad, I've already ruined 2 and can spare anymore!
Please help!!!

Take a look at this page:

Anything there look familiar?  The only way I've ever had good luck with these is to cut a teensie hole in the fabric to put the male end of the snap through the fabric. I don't think you're supposed to, but I do. And then I pound the thing to get it to set.  I've never tried the thing in 16K, but have tried the pliers type thing and the thing with a pic of the hammer.  The hammer one is for me.  I've found they work best with as little fabric behind them as possible (no loose interfacing.) And, you have to be steady so the snap doesn't slide slightly off centre when you're pounding it. Ask me how I know, sigh.

I looked all over and couldn't find a pic of anyone actually doing this to show you how.  Maybe someone else will have better luck.
