Hello everyone! I’m thrilled to be guest posting here at I Heart Naptime today. Thank you Jamielyn for the opportunity :)
My name is Veronica and 6 months ago I started my blog “Life In The Thrifty Lane
” where I share crafts, home remodeling, decorating a new home, organizing and more.
Today I will show you how to make a pair of magnetic tie backs for curtains. My 5 yrs old daughter didn’t have it for her window curtains in her bedroom so I got creative!
Here is what you will need to make a pair
1 Fabric Quarter
2 flower shaped templates (approx. 5″ and 4″diameter) (cutted with my Silhouette)
thread and needle
2 felt circles
4 magnets (use the one you find at Lowe’s or Home Depot, they hold better)
2 stripes 11″ each of sheer ribbon
buttons (2 large and 2 smaller)
Start by drawing 8 large flowers and 8 smaller with the templates on your fabric with a pen
Cut them all, you should have 8 big flowers and 8 smaller to make the pair
Fold the flower in half
Fold one end to the center
and also the other end
a few stitches to keep it all together
Now take your felt circle and add a dot of hot glue on it and the first big petal
opposite the second petal
and the last two
Same process now but with the small petals
When you are done with the flower add a nice button on the middle with hot glue
Add the sheer ribbon on the back on top of the felt circle an on top of that a magnet
At the other end of the ribbon another magnet and a smaller button. Your done!
They look so pretty on the curtains in her princess room.
