So what do you do when you can't find what you are looking for? You make it yourself, of course. I found these delightful ... er ... doodads.... not sure what else to call them, at the Scrapbooking Show last year and have been on the lookout for some magnets ever since so I can complete the project. It is so difficult to find craft supplies anymore unless it is on the internet and then you have to include postage. Anyway, I have only just found the magnets locally but....oh no....they are too big for my look-a-like Wedgewood embellishments (yea, that sounds better than doodads).
Nevermind, because I have this lovely big button so why not put it to use.
Ok, here is what I am using to make my Needle Nanny or Needle Minder, if you prefer. A big button, a strong magnet, some string and a strong glue.
As you can see the needle stays nicely in place
I think it is kinda pretty....now to find magnets to fit the "Wedgewood" ones.
