Picture of Fabric fridge Magnets for children

I get this idea in grandma’s visit. My baby love to play with her magnet ladybird. But the thing is small and I was always scared that she could put the magnet in her mouth.

My idea is to have a fabric pictures with magnets so she could play with them, this type of magnets are soft and much bigger then grandma’s ladybird.
The bad think is that they need a hand washing after a while. 

I plan to make a magnet chalk board, that she could play with the magnets and use a chalk board for pictures also. But for now I need to found blackboard paint so we play with magnets on our radiator.

Step 1: You will need:

You will need: 
1. fabric with print of your choice
2. padding
3. fabric for the back
4. small square fabric for sewing a magnet to the back fabric
5. magnet

Step 2: Sewing fabric

1. sew together the fabric and padding (1 cm from the print).
Use contrast thread. This is a sketch, so you will be able to see where you need sewing from the back.

Step 3: Sewing the magnet

On the back fabric put the round fabric (purple fabric) and sew a circle. Before you finished put a magnet between both fabrics.

Step 4: Fabric sandwich

Make a sandwich of both fabric right side to right side and put at the back fabric the second padding.
Make a small stitch (orange line) 1 mm inside of the first stitch (black stitch).
Leave open a few cm, so you could turn around in this part and then sew the hole.

... have fun.

These are great! I love the ones on your blog too. Do you have an Etsy site? These would sell really well there. This is mine if you want to check it out: http://phoebedea.etsy.com
I print designs on fabric. It's very easy. I'll post an instructable soon, Here is a good one: Inkjet Fabric Printing
but if you want to wash the fabric, you should soak it in Bubble Jet Set 2000 first. Then your print will be permanent!
