I've been making these cute little quilted tool caddies for awhile now for little gifts and swaps, and every once in awhile, someone says, "Oh, I love that but I could never do those magnetic snaps." Well, I have to admit that I was a bit intimidated by magnetic snaps too - until I tried them.
They're super easy!
Here's a 7-photo tutorial of everything you need to know about adding magnetic snaps to purses, totes, or even this little quilted tool caddy.
STEP 1: Figure out where you want your snap to go, and make a dot in the center. In this example, the center of the tool caddy is at 4" and I want it 1" above the edge. Can you see the dot?
By the way, this won't show, so use whatever you have at hand. Here I used a plain old ordinary pencil.
NOTE: This process is the same for both the male magnetic snap (shown) and the female magnetic snap (not shown).
See? Easy Peasy!
