Ladybug Craft: Fabric Scrap Magnets

I have always loved ladybug crafts because they are so darn cute. And, in case you haven’t noticed, I’m kind of a magnet freak too. In making these magnets I was able to use up some fabric scraps, so that was a major bonus.

Plus, they’re darn cutesy, don’t you think? That makes this project a win all the way around.

These colorful little ladybug magnets also make great gifts when you need to have several on hand. They remind me of my plastic lid ladybugs, but with a bit more color from the fabrics. Drop them into party bags, send to a secret sister, or put one at each place setting if you partake in tea parties. Fun just for a smile too. :)
