Are you looking for an easy sewing project for your kids or students that’s perfect for Mothers Day or Valentines Day? Well then this speech-bubble-fridge-magnet softie might just be what you’re looking for. Fridge magnets seem to be an almost universal addition to every fridge. And why not…they’re useful…and are often a small reminder of a recent vacation…and they can also be a simple gift for kids to sew.
You’ll find instructions for two slightly different speech bubbles below. The step by step photos for one and the video tutorial for a slightly different speech bubble. Both are easy sewing projects and a lovely handmade gift to give to a loved one.
WHAT YOU NEED
22cm X 28cm piece of white felt
6cm X 6cm square of orange felt
6cm X 6cm square of yellow felt
Two strong magnets
Hot glue gun
Fold the piece of white felt in half. Draw a speech bubble on one side and cut out to make two equal sized speech bubbles. Here’s a speech bubble template if you want. Cut out a heart from the orange felt and a letter U from the yellow felt.
Sew or glue the heart and the letter U onto one of the speech bubbles.
Glue the magnets into place on the remaining speech bubble.
Place the two speech bubbles one on top of the other. Pin and sew together. Remember to leave a 5cm opening for stuffing.
Stuff with a small amount of polyester fibrefill and sew the opening closed.
