Fridge Magnets

As seen on TV.  Well, for about 3.5 seconds.  I entered these into a contest on Studio 5 (a Utah craft/lifestyle show) and made it onto TV, but didn't make it to the final 5.  The contest was you enter a picture of a craft you made for under $5 and if you win you get a Silhouette machine.  I wanted that Silhouette soo bad, oh well.  So anyways, I made a few more magnets so I could give some to my sister tommorow for watching my girls while I go to sewing class.  These are super easy to make, so I thought I'd share.

Step numer one: hot glue or crazy glue magnets to the back of the clothespins.  They are adhesive on the back but it's not strong enough to hold on for more than a day or so.  A pack of magnets costs 98 cents at Walmart and you can make a bazillion clothespins magents with one pack.
Cut some strips of scrapbook paper. Just wing it, I didn't measure exactly what size they are.  You can draw an outline of the clothespin and then cut a little smaller than that and use it as a template.

Brush some Mod Podge to the top of your clothespin and then put your paper on top of that and brush another coat of Mod Podge on top of that to seal it on.  Let it dry.  And your done! I told you it was super easy.  You could add some matching flower on top or buttons or whatever ya want.  So cute, easy and cheap.

I'm making some progress on my denim blanket.  I got the "sandwiches" sewn together.  Now I've got to sew them together in rows.  This is going to be the tricky part.  I've never made a rag type blanket before and I'm kinda nervous!
