Fabric Covered Magnets



Taking inspiration from jcaroline creative I made my own fabric covered magnets though I radically adapted the original idea. I didn’t make a lot of fuss about the magnets and just used ready-to-use coloured magnets and glued fabric on them, very similiar to the way used during the fabric bead necklace project. It works and is done very quickly =)

Nevertheless I took care not to gloo anything on the magnet itself, just on its plastic cover – all around – and tucked the rest of the fabric over the sides where I cut it down so nothing was visible from the outside or covering the magnet. Hope everything is clear now 😉

Already stressed about Christmas presents?

Well, I have already thought about them too. And I came across a few on-line tutorials that inspired me to hand craft most of my presents this year.

I especially love this necklace (the full title: Louis Vuitton “Knock Off” Fabric Bead Necklace) by froo*gal.

I think I am going to start doing a few of those for selected girlfriends this weekend, as soon as my exam on Friday has been passed (hopefully successfully ).

I also fell in love with this bag by A Mingled Yarn, that’s originally a diaper bag but will be adapted to work as a map / book bag for me to take all my stuff to university with me:

And someone will also be presented with fabric covered magnets by jcaroline creative! as a christmas gift. Aren’t they just gorgeous:

Oh, and I really have to go to a jumble sale. I need album cover sleeves for this great organizing idea:
