Cut a circle of fabric slightly less than the diameter of the snap.

By hand sew a running stitch around the circumference of the circle approximately 1/8" from the edge.

Place ball piece of snap in center of circle and pull up running stitch tightly. Insert ball half of snap into socket half. This should push the ball through the fabric (you might have to encourage it with by poking a small hole in the fabric).

Remove socket half and whip stitch edges on back of snap.

Repeat for socket half of snap.

Sew onto garment using a buttonhole stitch through snap holes.

I am challenged when it comes to math, but LESS than the diameter?
