some. I made some flats from flannel from joann's and some take the snappi fine and others dont. I dont' know why, but I am trying to use pins mostly anyway.

I do. It works 90% of the time for me. Usually the bottom leg is the problem - it doesn't stay put.

It seems to depend on the weave of the flannel. I had some prefitteds decorated with flannel that I could not get that center leg of the snappi to grip for the life of me. I had to use them inside out since I can't pin .

If you are making things yourself, try to find a looser-weave flannel - at least for the areas that the snappi will need to grip.
