Fabric Magnets

Edit: Thanks, Natasha, for becoming my third person for Pay it Forward 2011!

My friend is hosting a craft sale through the Women's Center on campus to raise funds for charity. She asked me to make some fabric magnets. How could I say no? I hadn't tried making them, and it couldn't be too hard... and I was going to be home for two days.

I just wish I had made more, but I got super busy with all the stuff I had to do while there. I can tell you, though, I have a great idea for Christmas this year... can you say themed magnets for the people I love? They won't be getting those from anyone else :)

Apparently these magnets were selling fast - within the first hour of the stand being open, there were only two left! I think they sold them for $.50 or a dollar. I have to find out.

I haven't done a tutorial yet on my blog. Maybe I should do one, even though it's a relatively easy project? I'm sure there's already one out there. It's very simpled, and it's a great way to use scraps of not only fabric, but batting. What do you think, should I attempt a tutorial?

I'm linking up to amylouwho's Sew and Tell today!

I'm also linking up to Sarah's (at Confessions of A Fabric Addict) Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop? for the first time!

And... speaking of...

Sarah is having a giveaway! One way to win is linking up to her linky party by Saturday night, and you can win some FABULOUS fabric - more details here.

Also, Hilachas is celebrating her birthday with a fabulous giveaway - an array of quilty things! Check it out here.

AND, here's a picture of my red and green Dresden plates, all ready to be sewn together! I'll be home for spring break, for an entire week, in a week, and I can't wait!
