    • A 3" piece of 1/4" wide ribbon

    Sew on the Snap

    The snap placement
    Debbie Colgrove

    Sew one-half of the snap onto the pocket over the area you attached the ribbon to the pocket.

    Place the pocket in the bra cup and bring the ribbon around the bra strap.

    Mark where the ribbon crosses over the snap.

    Turn under the free end of the ribbon to enclose it under the snap marking and sew on the other half of the snap.
