    Clever idea for the metal, where did you get the magnets and how are they inserted?

    Thanks so much for showing this bag and the link to the instructions! I had seen ones made this way with a narrow purchased closure, but had not found a source for the original ones I saw. Now I can make the tapestry bags I've been wanting to do. WooHoo!

    For the small bags you can get the metal tape measure at Dollar tree and other dollar stores for the larger bags you need the 1" width so check out hubby's tool box!

    Made a small one of these. DH warned me that you might not be able to wash them because the metal tape measure will rust.

    He may be right but you could cover lightly with electrical tape maybe?

    Great bag and idea. I will pass on DH's tool box. He doesn't mess with my sewing stuff and I don't mess with his tool box.

    I've made over 20 of the small size, cosmetic bag size. They go like "hot cakes". So much fun to make and a good way to use scraps and left over batting.
