TBC Crafters 17 – Feltie Magnet Butterfly

It is such a busy week! I did not have much time and inspiration at the beginning of the week. All a sudden, I saw some magnet sticks which were taken off from some magnetic badges before. I added a cute felt butterfly to create new life for these magnets. It just needs a bit of sewing and simple decoration.

2) Use needle and thread to stitch the 2 pieces of felt butterfly together and make a pocket.

3) Before to close the butterfly, stuck a piece of magnet inside and add some batting into it, then use needle and thread to stitch the pocket closed completely.

      Thank you. I am planning to make some others already. My daughter loves stars, flowers and my son wants planes and cars. Your idea is great, holiday and seasonal shapes.

    How cute!! I remember making something like that for my Mom when I was about 8 or so and I forgot to put the dumb magnet inside, so I just glued it to the back :-p She even still has that thing this many years later!! Love it!! Pinned & Tweeted!

      Thanks Rebecca. It just takes a lot of practices and time. I usually am being tempted to do it fast but I try hard to tell myself to stitch slowly and little by little.
