Tutorial - Denim pocket fridge magnet

I've been thinking about making a tutorial for a long time, and decided that today was the day.
I’m starting with a very easy and uncomplicated project, and if I’m adding to much (or not enough…) details please let me know.



What you need:
Denim pockets
Fabric glue
Magnet sheet
Heavy books (or something else with some weight to it)

I have been making a lot of denim bowls and even redid a chair with denim and that left me with quite a few upperparts of the trousers I used. One way to put them into use was to make fridge magnets of the back pockets.



1: Cut out the pocket, as close to the edge as possible.




2: I decided not to zigzag the edge of the back of the pocket because stretch denim tend to crumple when I do. But if you don’t care about that it would make the edges more resistible to fraying.



3: Get your glue and magnet sheet (At the time I had neither fabric glue or magnet sheet so I used what I had. Gel medium and some magnet that I had printed with some of my collages. But I would strongly recommend magnet sheets because the magnet is stronger so you can put more weight in the pockets.)



4: Cut the magnet to size and glue it to the back of the pocket.



5: Put some heavy books on top and leave to dry.




6: Viola… perfect for pens, small notes or other stuff you want easy access to
