Perfect Purse Closure Alternative!!!!
Hello Yarn Friends!!!
We have found a wonderful solution to closing unique shaped purses that a zipper wouldn't be really feasible for.
I made a granny square purse that I struggled to find a closure for that wouldn't ruin the look of the purse. The shape was so different and unique that I thought a zipper would remove the "openess" of the purse that I loved. Also, I didn't want to add the over the top strap with a button as I felt that would ruin ithe cool geometric square lines. I was thinking if only I could use magnets!!! hmmm...
Went to our MagnaKoys® stock room and started digging.... I FOUND THE PERFECT SET!!! Yay!!! The magnets were wide enough to do the job - the hole in the middle was large enough for crochet needle to move in and out as you single crochet with thin yarn - thick yarn (makes no difference). So, I single crocheted around the ring. I crocheted it on the purse and Voila - It is awesome!!! And the best part is the finished closure - looks like it's apart of the purse - instead of adding to or taking away! It's perfecto friends!! (Forgive the pictures - as I am far from a professional photographer ` lol.... Also, my stitching is rough! I am always rushing and just sometimes my finished projects look very rough :-)
** I was asked the other day, what lining I used - hee hee - believe it or not - that is an old stuck in the back of my closet "old navy tee shirt" lol - It was brilliant! lol
You can get the same magnets I used:
