I also use magnets in other ways for sewing... I put a couple of them in the lid of my take-along Klosje project tin. They keep my thread bobbin, needles and scissors nice and neat.
There’s a little magnet under this yellow pocket of fabric that I stitched to the inside wall of my applique bag. I never have to fumble around for my scissors and risk getting poked because I know right where they are. And its so easy to put them back into place.
Another tin with a magnet for my applique bag. Where it’s metal, I don’t even have to glue it down.
This yellow plastic flower sticks to the lamp post by my work table thanks to a magnet I glued on the back. I use it as a handy place to rest spare needles.
And I’m thinking a button would work too…how cute would these be!
