    This site has both the 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch magnetic snaps.

    Which size did you use? I just ordered the 3/4. I hope this isn't going to be a mistake.

    If you get board at Mickey's place coming down to the Keys. :-)

    I used a Titan brand 3/4" magnetic snap - and it is STRONG.
    I found two people on Etsy that sells the slimline ones. I have a message in to the sellers asking if they are as strong as the regular magnetic snaps. I"ll let you all know as soon as I find out - hopefully the person will message back right away so I can order some before you all get to them first :lol:
    Seriously though - I'll let you guys know as soon as I find out - but yeah, the snaps I used were 3/4" and they are potent.

    I just ordered some off of Etsy along with more sliders and square rings for the purse. They were cheaper than others I have seen online and after emailing back and forth with the etsy person I'm hoping that I'm getting something not as strong. I ordered 14mm ones - I thought the slim ones would be weaker but he said that the slims are actually stronger magnets so I went with the one he suggested... A few of my friends want to make the bag so I'll be able to go through those magnetic snaps and sliders and whatnot pretty quickly :)

    Love the bag. You will get a lot of use out of it - and even better, it is washable. Good job.
