pretty magnets

What better way to decorate magnets than to cover them with pretty scraps of fabric?

Fabric covered buttons with flat backs and magnets glued on, make for pretty magnets for your fridge!

A present

I did it...... I pulled out the sewing machine, plugged it in, ignored the housework, didn't think about dinner and sewed.
Ashley's dear friend Eliza had her birthday today and I made a little pouch to store some felt pens and paper. I have used the pattern before from here and love it!

It folds out into three sections, one for some little pens or crayons, one for a little notepad and one that I like to add in some stickers. It can be taken anywhere with you, perfect for coffee shops or long trips in the car.

Happy Birthday Eliza!
