Not much to do on a cloudy, misty day when you’ve just finished the novel you’ve been reading. That’s where I found myself today. Inspired by the weather, and a hefty stash of felt, I found it was the perfect day to work on this project.
This is a simple project, easily done in a short afternoon. These Cloudy Day Magnets are strong enough to hold all those important notes and appointment reminders on the fridge.
Supplies Used For Cloudy Day Magnets:
- White, light gray and dark gray felt
- white, light gray and dark gray thread
- sewing needle
- thin card board for a pattern
- strong magnets
- stuffing or cotton balls
- optional little beads
Start by drawing a cloud pattern on a thin piece of cardboard. You can see that I adjusted mine to make it a little more fluffy. I took pictures with a ruler so you could get an idea of the size of the pattern I used.
Use the pattern to cut 2 piece of felt of the same color for each cloud you want to make. Using a matching thread, whip stitch it together on all sides leaving the bottom open. My stitches aren’t perfect, nor exactly even – don’t judge!
Insert a strong magnet inside, then stuff the stuffing over the top. Make sure to get the stuffing in all the areas. I used the point of a scissors to push the stuffing into each area. I did not put any stuffing behind the magnet. Whip stitch it closed. Done. Well, that is unless you want to embellish it a little more by adding a few rain drops.
To add the rain drops, I used mini crystal stickers that I sandwiched a dangling thread between.
They look adorable on the fridge! A perfect way to while away a few hours.
