Some Sewing & Some Craftin'...

Magnets

Fabric scraps + self cover buttons = cute fridge magnets.

Pouch

Plus I have been saving this fabric for ages & I think it looks pretty cute as a little boxy pouch.

Pouch

Lined with spots, man do I love spots!

you are so good at zips! I am v bad with them and generally avoid them.
Where do you get your magnets from? I bought some from Riot for my last batch of fridge magnets but they aren't v strong.
love the new sewing machine - v cool retro blue! Good choice by the hubby

Everything is gorgeous! And you can't go wrong with polka dots - the tinier the better!

I keep seeing these boxy pouches popping up and I really think I might have to make one.

great job
i have been reading your blog and love it. can you help me
where did you get the buttons kits from? and are they flat backed?
i love the machine

Christie said...

hey there 2 little buttons,

these were from Spotlight (the kits with the crappy plastic backs) & no they are not flat backed but I didn't use the backs to make these magnets

Hope that helps :-)
