Little Peep Magnets

This fun pattern is designed by Stephanie Smith.  It is featured in the Stitch Spring 2012 issue.

I have a huge collection of magnets.  When I saw these cute birdies, I couldn't resist stitching up a half dozen of them!  I'm definitely keeping one or two, but maybe I'll part with a few..

They came together very easily.  I used thicker home decor fabric for the bodies, and wool taken from blazers and other second hand garments for the wings.  Rare earth magnets make these strong enough to hold a grocery list, even with the weight of the bird.
