Picture of How to add a magnetic snap to your sewing project
Magnetic snaps are great closures for wallets, bags, pockets and much more. Here is a quick way (one of the many ways) to affix a magnetic snap to a sewing project.

Step 1: Tools and supplies

Picture of tools and supplies
These are the basic tools and supplies that you will need:

-  a pair of small needle nose pliers
-  a harp knife
-  small pieces of "sew on" interfacing
-  a piece of heavy fabric (depending on the project, you could use a piece of plastic or cardboard)
-  a magnetic snap (the set comes with four pieces: two circles to help hold the magnets in place and two magnets)
-  your sewing project
 
This is a well researched and written post. Very practical and easy to understand. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Some people might still not be aware of these and how simple they are. And you can't sew these in backward like a magnet. Good job!
