Super strong magnetic snaps for an invisible closure to your purse, handbag, or clutch.
Set includes two magnetic pieces, a positive and a negative, to create one closure.
Rather than mounting snaps with prongs to the front of your fabric in plain view, these snaps are sewn to the back of your lining fabric so will be hidden between the lining and exterior fabric.
Magnets measure 14mm (about 5/8") in diameter and is 2.5 mm (less than 1/8") high.
Each magnet is vacuum packed in a 30mm (about 1-3/16") pliable sewing-friendly vinyl setting square.
Simply sew through the setting square, with smooth side down, attaching it to the back of your lining fabric.
Use your standard sewing foot, sewing needle and construction thread to sew through the vinyl setting square to secure the magnet to the back of the fabric. See IMPORTANT NOTE below.
There are metal prongs to tear through the bag or lining.
These sew-in magnetic snaps are much stronger than standard pronged magnetic snaps.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
Because the magnets in these snaps are SO strong, it is important that the magnet be covered with fabric to prolong wear. Otherwise the vinyl setting square can tear and allow the magnets to come loose.
If you are installing these sew-in magnets on pre-quilted fabric, we suggest covering each side of the magnet with a facing. Our patterns that use these snaps include detail instructions for this.
