So to create the scarf bail with the snap base, I combined methods from two of my tutorials:
Constructing Accent Pieces for Your Scarves, Sweaters & Shawls
and Snap Decisions - Part 2
Here are the instructions to make a scarf bail with a snap base using the above two tutorials. I will refer to them as "Scarf" and "Snap" as the instructions will switch back and forth between the two.
# 1 - Roll out your sheet of clay to add your snap base - See Snap Tutorial - Step 1 (page 5)
# 2 - Cut our the scarf bail base form - See Snap Tutorial - Step 2 (page 5) AND Scarf Tutorial - Step 50 (page 18)
# 3 - Crimp your snap base onto the raw clay piece. - See Snap Tutorial - page 27

Bake your piece and you are done!
We now have a large selection of snap supplies and tools in our online shop as well as jewelry findings that we use in our tutorials such as the smaller rings for scarf bails. These rings are a perfect fit for the clip type clasp used to make the scarf jewelry interchangeable.
