Magnets decorated with embroidery have two advantages: there may have any pattern (kids, food, alphabet, etc., depending on the creative task) and, in the case of smearing, may be cleaned in soapy water.
To make such a magnet train, you need:
- mini embroidery of a train and cars
- magnets with the diameter of 30 mm (3 pcs),50 mm (1 pc). with a groove on the back
- transparent multi-purpose glue
- scissors for fabric
- nail scissors or any thin metal object
- vanishing marker for fabric
- white felt or other nonfraying material
Apply glue on the center of all magnets and the center of the back of each embroidery. The surface of the magnets should be clean and dry, the embroidery steamed and ironed. To apply glue acccurately, you can use a toothpick. Wait a bit and attach the embroidery to the magnet. Take your time, do not press hard at first, while the glue is still slightly movable, carefully center the embroidery on the magnet, and then press harder. Allow the glue to dry.
Now you need to determine how much canvas you need to leave and how much to cut off. To do this, bend the edges of the canvas to the backside of the magnet and tuck into the groove. Mark the desired length with the nail :) or marker. Draw the outline of a circle of the required diameter on the fabric with the washable marker. For a magnet of 50 mm, I got a circle with a diameter of 80 mm, and for the magnet of 30 mm — 50 mm.
Cut the excess of canvas.
Apply glue with a toothpick in the groove of the magnet and gently crumple and stick the canvas to the magnet with fingers, and then strongly press it into the groove with the nail scissors. It is better not to hurry and make the magnets one by one. Because if glue is apllied to all magnets at this stage, it will have time to dry out.
Let it dry. Cut off extra threads.
Cut out strips of felt of such width and length that they covered all the irregularities. You can use tape, the main thing is that glue was not seen.
Glue them on. The magnets are ready!
