Crochet Applique Magnets

Here's an easy project if you'd like to bring some yarny goodness to the office or the refrigerator...crochet applique magnets!  Easy as pie and fun to make too.

Here's what you'll need:
  • Magnet sheets or strips
  • Scissors
  • Appliques (see below for more information)
  • Hot Glue

For the appliques shown above, all crocheted in just one round, click the link to go directly to each pattern:
  1. One Round Bow Pattern
  2. One Round Star Pattern
  3. One Round Cloud Pattern
  4. One Round Leaf Pattern
  5. One Round Hearts Pattern
  6. One Round Flowers Pattern

Here are 30 more amazing appliques...something for everyone!

To make your own yarny magnets, first snip off pieces of magnet that will fit the backs of your appliques.  Be sure to cut it large enough so that there is enough magnet there for it to stick, but not so large that there is overhang.

The magnets are sold by the sheet (as shown) or by the roll.  I cut mine in small squares.  Also, peel off the paper backing too...this is the side you will apply the hot glue.

Next, apply the hot careful not to squirt too much on there so it does not seep through.  Then just stick the magnet backing on...all finished!

Repeat for all of the appliques and be sure to let completely dry before using.  This is a great little gift for someone who may be getting a new job with a new office, or a new home and would like to pretty up their refrigerator.

  1. I am a teacher and I have been doing this a few years now. They are quick and the kids get a holiday themed goody to take home. That is why I love your one round creations because they are perfect for this application. I think I have all the holidays and seasons covered by now!! :)
