It might sound silly but I love magnets—more than the average person, in fact I covet them. Discovering unused magnets at my house is like finding treasure or an extra razor cartridge when you thought you were fresh out. Meg and I have a broccoli magnet that we share custody of, every so often the other smuggles it home with them. We often get into conversations like “It’s my turn to take Broccoli Rob home with me, you’ve had it for two months!” Then the other will retort, “Well you had it for almost three before that.” It’s one of those bizarre sister things but just thinking about it now brings a smile to my face.
The reason why I have an infatuation with magnets is because of what they represent. My favorite part of our kitchen is the refrigerator, not only because it holds the food but also because it show-cases our Christmas cards, wedding announcements, and pictures of loved ones (well mainly our niece). New magnets for me, is more space to expand my collage of people I love.
I picked up these basic black magnets a few months ago, intending to hot glue something to them to make them more appealing but never got around to it. While rummaging through my desk the other day I stumbled upon them again and aspired to making some magnets that could share the fridge with Broccoli Rob.
Supplies needed: felt, thread, needle, scissors, fabric pencil, heart template, and magnets.
Trace the hearts.
Cut out the hearts.
Sew around the perimeter.
I was going to use my sewing machine to get a more even stitch but then I decided to try hand stitching first and I ended up liking the messy and juvenile look of it.
