School is starting. YAY! Start the new year with a DIY magnet-closure snack pouch. Also great for pens and pencils, or to hold personal toiletries in your purse.
- Fabric (I used wipe-clean oilcloth)
- Straight pins
- Sewing scissors
- Ruler + pencil
- Two super magnets
- Super glue
Cut a total of four sections of fabric: two at 9”w x 11”h and two at 9”w x 6”h. (Make larger or smaller depending on your needs.)
Pin the two longer pieces of fabric with right sides together. At one end, use a ruler to form a triangle-like shape.
Additionally, pin the two shorter pieces of fabric with right sides together.
Sew these two separate sections. Once sewn, turn fabric so right sides are out.
Apply super glue to the first super magnet. It will be applied to the inside of the top piece of fabric of the longer section, in the triangle point.
Now apply super glue to the second super magnet. It will be applied to the inside of the top piece of fabric of the shorter section. To determine where exactly to adhere this magnet, you will need to place the two sewn sections together, fold down the pointed section of the longer piece to get a placement for this second magnet.
With the magnets secured, pin the two sewn sections with right sides together. Sew.
With the bottoms sewn together, fold the shorter section up. Pin the sides together and sew to form the pouch. Happy snacking!
