Magnetic snaps are a great fastener solution for many types of bags as well as other accessories and clothing.
We offer them in two finishes:
Despite the professional look, adding them to your project is easy. Here are a few quick steps for attaching magnetic snaps.
See our faux leather vinyl handbag tutorial to find out how to make this entire project.
Use the metal backing as a template to mark where to cut the slits on the fabric.
Use a seam ripper to cut slits just big enough for the prongs to go through from the front side of the fabric.
You can use a heavy stabilizer or a piece of cardboard to reinforce the snap on the back. We suggest Pellon Ultra-Firm Fusible Stabilizer or, for fabrics that shouldn’t be ironed like vinyl, Pellon Ultra-Firm Sew-In Stabilizer. For lighter weight fabrics, you’ll want a less stiff stabilizer like Pellon Decor Bond Fusible Stabilizer.
Cut out a piece of stabilizer that’s a little larger than the snap and cut the slits.
