I have to admit that there are two things I'm really enjoying about the zakka style sew along : 1) that I've been challenged to do something I wouldn't normally spend my few crafty hours doing each week; and 2) that seeing all of the creative wealth of the other people who are working on the same projects has really pushed me into looking at my projects in a more creative way, as well. This week's project, the itty bitty magnet project, was no exception! With that, here are my little guys :
I generally don't care to make itty bitty things, though they are super cute. This week's project definitely falls into that category : really cute, but not something I would generally make. With that in mind, I finished three of the magnets, rather than all six ... and perhaps when I have more time this summer I'll revisit this project and make the rest of them.
I used some Amy Butler Midwest Modern scraps that I have from another (unfinished) project. After painfully finishing the open seam on the first magnet by slip stitching it closed, I opted to go for the cheater method on my other two magnets : I simply sewed it close to the edge with my machine. The magnets are now happily residing on my fridge, next to some fabric covered magnets I made a while back. They're happy together!
