|Fabric covered magnets.|
Some time ago, I saw these adorable fabric covered thumbtacks on How About Orange. I wanted to make them, but I have no need for thumbtacks at my house. It took me until yesterday morning to figure out that I should make magnets instead. Duh!! Once upon a time, my mind was sharp as a fabric covered thumbtack. Apparently, those days are behind me.

The only difference between the How About Orange tute and what I did is that instead of gluing in thumbtacks, I glued in a magnets. I used Loctite gel multi-surface glue which, in my opinion, is good stuff. It’s easy to control and sets up fairly quick.
|I used a variety of bright colors. Why? Those scraps were on top.|
I consider myself quite the connoisseur of adhesives. I have a cupboard full of them and try to use the right glue for the right purpose. I actually get excited about adhesives. Good lord, I’m a geek. But, I’m a geek with some cute fabric magnets.
