Tutorial Tuesday~ Fabric Magnets!

If you are like me, you get a ton of these calendar magnets in the mail.
They aren't the most atttractive designs, but they are good magnets so why not make them cute?
First, I put spray glued on some interfacing because my magnets have been put through the ringer.
If you don't need interfacing but do neet to cover the images, try some spray paint.
Trace the magnet onto your fabric and cut just outside your mark...
Spray glue your magnet and quickly put your fabric on it!
To keep the edges from fraying, most people would use Fray Check.
 I don't have any.
I improvised with clear nail polish and it worked like a charm.
Simply dab the edges.
Don't have any ugly magnets?
You can buy business card sized ones at most Walmarts!
Don't want any more magnets?
Do your mousepad!
Not a fabric person?
This would also work with Modge Podge and scrapbook paper!

Great ideas! And a good way to use up those bits of fabric you hate to part with.
