Supplies for Fabric Magnets

Vintage Pink Fabric with Large Black Scissors

Step 1: Cut pieces of fabric to fit your magnet sheets.

Magnet Sheet Being Mod Podge

Step 2: Liberally apply Mod-Podge to a magnet sheet with the foam brush. Smooth the fabric onto the magnet sheet. Since Mod-Podge dries quickly, you’ll want to make one sheet at a time. Let the sheets dry.

Draw letter on fabric magnet sheet

Step 3: Once dry, draw your favorite letters on the sheets using a pen or marker. And, if letters aren’t your thing, shapes would be fun too.

Cutting letter out with scissors

Step 4: Cut the letters out.

Fabric Letters Cut Out

Step 5: If your letters will get a lot of use, you can apply an additional layer of Mod-Podge to the top of your finished letters for extra durability.
