Magnetic Button Ring Tutorial


I was recently invited by Madame Samm to do a guest post at Stash Manicure. So, I decided it was time to make another tutorial for everyone. Make sure to visit Stash Manicure to see the tutorial, learn how to make a Magnetic Button Ring, and to leave a comment because I will be picking a winner from those who leave a comment @ Stash Manicure. I'm also going to pick a second winner from those that leave a comment here on my blog.

The PRIZE will be ONE Magnetic Button Ring (for each blogs winner) You may pick either red or black.

You will have until Midnight on Saturday, July 2nd to leave your comments.

Update Information:
Several people have asked where to buy the products. I want to remind you to click on the links that I've provided in the tutorial and it will take you to i-Tops Website where you can click on the STORE LOCATOR button that will take you to a map. Then Click on the STATE that you live in and it will take you to a list of places in your STATE that sell the i-Top products. Also I did a search on google and here are a few other links where to can buy the product onlineHERE and HERE. You will also want to watch the Imaginesce video HERE.

You will also see that there are videos on the IMAGINESCE (i-Top) website. Also, one other thing- When I taught how to use their products at a quilt retreat my local quilt shop contacted Imaginesce directly (maker of i-top products) and purchased them at wholesale for the retreat.

Very nice ring. Could you please let me know where I can buy the rings online, so I can make them with my friends. Thank you for the tutorial, I never win.

Hi Kim,

Beautiful ring, I would love to win the black one! Thanks for the tutorial, at least I can make my own if I don't win but I am sure yours will be much better than any I can make! lol

love the black, this idea is great because I hate pin cushions, seems like such a waste of time and I end up throwing them on my magnetic holder anyway, but to have this on my finger would be great!

Nancy said...

These are so cute, and the tutorial is very clear and helpful. Thanks... love the red one.

Thimbleanna said...

Those rings are so cute Kim. I LOVE that safety pin fabric too!

Anne said...

Kim you are soooooo clever! And I love how they are done in your signature colors. After a sabatical from sewing, I am adding this to my list of things to do!

Malmbergs said...

Such a great idea! Love the colors and fabric you chose.

Quilter in the Gap said...

What a wonderful idea...I NEED one of those. If I don't win I am going to have to figure out how to make one without the I-top.

onlymehere said...

As I said on Stash Manicure, this is pure genius! I have some friends who would love these too and so I'm going to have to send them your way. Great idea!

Martha said...

These are adorable. The red one is my favorite. These are great gifts for quilt guild members. Oh, you talented lady!!

Candice said...

one of the cutest ideas ever :) love it!!

Michelle said...

Brilliant! Thanks for sharing and not keeping this a secret. :0) I love the red.

Bert said...

The rings are so adorable. What a great fast and useful gift for a sewing pal. I have printed your instructions.

Sallie said...

What a great idea! I like the black ring with the red center. Thanks for the tutorial and the giveaway!

Nykie D said...

Those are fab - I love the red one. I have two pincushions as I pin on the floor and take the pins out on the desk, so I have to keep swapping them over. This sounds like a solution to me :o)

debstokes said...

How cute - headed over to see the tutorial now!!

Vicky P said...

I saw this ring at one of the LQS during a shop hop and wanted to make one but didn't have the time. Coming across the tutorial and then seeing that it came from your blog (I already follow) made me happy. Thanks for the tutorial and the chance to win on.

Mary said...

The rings are too cute. Do like black and red together. What fun. Thank you for sharing.

Nicole said...

Lovely - my pin cushion is always too far away!

Nedra said...

What a fun idea Kim! (I left you a comment over on Stash M but blogger is having issues so I left it under anonymous)
Congratulations on all the fun things going on with your life right now.

Stevens Family said...

What a fantastic and fabulous idea! You are so talented and creative.

Peggy said...

I love those pin magnets, what a great idea. I hope I can buy them on line.

rosewendy said...

What a great idea, and pretty enough to wear as a fashion piece too.

Kara Herron said...

I think this might help me while cleaning my basement - I couldn't just wave my hand around, and all those metal.. things... that I have lying around will come flying right at me. No stooping necessary.

Oh, and want the red one, of course. ;-)

Kara Herron said...

I guess I should spell-check before I put my comments out there - what I meant to say is: I COULD just wave my hand around. Geez.

Oh, and I still want the red one.
