kiwi bird magnets

as part of my transition back into the crafting world, i recently ordered a bunch of cover button supplies for some fun and easy projects.  a few years ago, i made quite a killing at craft fairs making button  badge ids and magnets. they also made/make great gifts.

as i went through my boxes of fabric, i realized the graphics on my kiwi bird parade fabric were the ideal size to fit over two button sizes.  i decided to start with magnets, as the number of baby announcements keep growing on our fridge ,and i've had to be very strategic with magnet placement.

i'm hoping that i'll find the time to make some more soon, since i expect the fridge to be littered with christmas cards in a month's plus time!


  1. I would love to know how you get your self cover buttons so neat. Mine always show the bunched in bit where it is gathered.

  2. do you use the little silicone/plastic tool to push in the cover back? my fabric does tend to bunch up a bit, but it's hard to tell in the photos, and i don't think it's that noticeable in person. i also tend to use pretty thin fabric, and actually often line it with some thin interfacing so you can't see the metal shining through!
