This is very much a late comment (4 years!) but I found that applying a square of fusible fleece over the metal, worked well!

Thanks for your tutorial, it was very helpful for my first foray into magnetic snaps!

I hope you find it useful Mary :)


Great tutorial. Thank you!

Thank you. It takes a little bit of time but I think it's worth it.


Nice! I do love that nice round stitching for a finished look!! :)


Thanks for a great tutorial. Very useful. My problem? how to sew a perfect circle?

How do you sew the perfect circle on a piece of fabric?


Thanks so much for the tutorial. What a godsend for my daughter and me!! Our bags turned out so cute. Love the bit about the fleece. Great idea!! Thanks again.


Hi! Just wanted to let you know you tutorial was a great help!
I tried to post a link to this page in my blog but I can only seem to get here through Google Cache for some reason. If I try to get to the archived posts through the links on your page it just keeps showing me the most current. Strange indeed.
Regardless, thank you!


Oh my blog is http://staticwhite.blogspot.com/
The specific post is: Part 2 - LushPunk's Custom Zombie Head Bag, Magnetic Snaps.
Hmm and now that I've tried again with this page I can get to it just so never mind about that! Ah the internet and it's hiccups.
Thanks again!


Oh man, thank you for this. I've had the snaps for well over a year and was terrified to even try it. I've read other tutes, but they involved a button holer thing and I just was not about that. I read yours, I tried it, and I have to say, I will be mag snapping everything! Thank you so much!


I'm glad I found this before my first attempt, the package I purchased had no instructions. Great tutorial.


Thank you so much for this tutorial! I'd never applied a snap before last month, and the snaps that I purchased had no instructions included! Your instructions and pictures were so easy to follow! My fourteen year-old daugter's first difficult sewing project turned out great. http://stuffthingsaremadeof.blogspot.com/2009/05/lessons-in-sewing_07.html


This is the most secure way of doing these snaps that I have read online. I am doing my first set on a bag I knitted and I don't want something wearing it out after all the hours I spent making it. Thanks for you tutorial and your knowledge.


Hi! Is there an online shop in the UK where I can buy the magnetic snaps? I need at least three 10mm snaps but I'm having trouble finding them!

Thanks, great site!


Thank you for this great tutorial ! I am following and installing my first magnetic snaps ! It works great !

What a great, secure way to install the snaps! Thanks for the tutorial!


I love the tip about sewing around the snap - I use them on covered books and this will help with stability. Great tutorial!


ooh i ;never thought to sew round it too..
