I cut out 5 projects that I am sewing for Easter Presents for my quilting buddies but they have been languishing on the design board.
They are small bags but I needed something to close the flap. I thought about velcro but as these are to go in your handbag I thought that was a bit bulky. I also considered a snap fastener, but that is a bit old fashioned and you have to line up the snap. Then I happened on rare earth magnets.
These magnets are small but super strong. With metal touching metal they are almost impossible to pull apart. I have found that If I cover each surface with fabric they make a really good closer on small bags. They are also not very expensive, about 45cents for a pair. Now that my delivery of magnets has arrived I can get the production line started again. (I will show you the finished product after I have given the presents which should be the end of March.)
