A few of you asked me about a pattern for the little magnets I posted yesterday, I kind of just winged it but I thought it might be helpful for anyone’s who’s interested if I traced my finished pieces & posted a downloadable pattern for you.Just be sure to print “fit to page” so it prints out full size on an 8′ x 11′ piece of paper.
I mentioned on there too where I placed the magnets, you don’t need to do anything special (no stitches or anything) for the magnets, I just thought I’d show you the widest part of the piece which is a good place for the big round magnet. I found you definitely need a nice strong magnet to hold it’s pull through the felt.
Also I don’t think I mentioned much about the thread, I used embroidery floss & if you’ll notice with embroidery floss each “strand” is actually made up of several thinner strands. I used two strands for my stitches that way they were thick enough to show up but not too thick & bulky.
Have fun! I’m off to finish my playroom & mail out Mother’s Day gifts (:
