Strong Invisible Sewing Magnets for Fabrics
Powerful neodymium sewing magnets are designed for clothes and costumes, drapes, canvas, slipcovers, bedspreads, liners and other items that are washed or dry-cleaned regularly. Each magnet is sealed in a flexible water-tight plastic sheath for protection against moisture and corrosion; and to ensure that the magnetic closure provides long-lasting performance and dependability. In addition, the plastic sheaths feature wide sewing borders for easy sewing into garments and fabrics.
Each magnet is also encased in a steel cup within the plastic sheath for added durability; and magnets are sold in matched north/south pairs. The steel cup encasing the magnet both protects it from damage and increases its strength by focusing the magnetic field.
Sewing magnets also work great in camper vans, tents, and RVs to secure window shades and coverings. They are also often used in tactical gear, medical blankets and x-ray shields, as well as boat and vehicle covers and in cosplay/theatre settings for use in costumes, wigs, and other accessories.
How to Use Sewing Magnets
To effectively utilize neodymium rare earth sewing magnets in your project, it's important to integrate them securely. First, determine the ideal location for the magnets. These magnets are designed to be an invisible fastener, and can be easily concealed within your project. Begin with one set of north and south sewing magnets; it's crucial to pair them correctly to ensure they attract rather than repel. Carefully place one of the magnets on the fabric material, and securely stitch through the PVC casing, being careful to not puncture the compartment that contains the magnet. Repeat the same process for the opposing magnet. This stitching will firmly anchor the magnet in place, ensuring it doesn't shift during use.
Washer / Dryer Safe
Neodymium sewing magnets are designed to be safe for use in washing machines and dryers. The durable plastic coating not only shields the magnet from potential corrosion, but also ensures that it remains intact and functional throughout the washing and drying process. These magnets are not only effective for various sewing and crafting applications, but also resilient enough to withstand the mechanical forces and moisture typically encountered in laundry appliances. You can confidently incorporate these magnets into your projects and products, knowing they can be conveniently laundered without compromising their performance or safety.
