Remember this bag? As much as I love the hand quilted triangles….
….I didn’t use much of this bag because it doesn’t have a closure. I thought I need to add a magnetic button but I didn’t want to open up the lining to ‘plant’ the button. So……
I gathered a set of magnetic button, two pieces of fabric and two pieces of stiff iron-on interfacing cut in circles…
On the right side, center the washer and mark the slits.
Using the seam ripper, cut the slits just long enough for the feet to go through.
Push through the feet,place in the washer and press down the feet to secure.
Using running stitches, stitch close to the edge and pull the stitches tight .Just like making a yo-yo.Secure the stitches with a knot.
Position the buttons and ‘applique’ in place. I used small stitches. I’m going to be tugging those circles each time I open my bag !
Done ! Good thing I kept those scraps. It’s almost ‘invisible”.
Now I can secure the content of my bag from preying eyes !
