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
3. fabric for the back
4. small square fabric for sewing a magnet to the back fabric
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.
