Sometimes you need a very particular color of fabric for what you're sewing. But finding the right color can be difficult, especially when ordering online.

Or maybe you're not sure what color you need, but you want to see a lot of colors together so you can make your choice. And you want to be able to move the colors around to see how they look side-by-side.

Well good news! Andover Fabrics has a color card of their Century Solids fabric collection, and we at Sewfinity have a kit for you to make them into fabric swatch magnets!

MAKE FABRIC SWATCH MAGNETS

1. Cut out large sections of cards

Cut the color card pages into rows, removing and discarding any empty outer margins as necessary. Cut out the fabric collection name, too.

2. Apply magnet sheets

Peel off the protective paper from the magnet sheets and press the card sections onto the exposed sticky surface. Align them as best as you can and cut them out.

OPTIONAL: Apply a magnet strip to the back of a color wheel, leaving the middle portion free so the wheel can still spin around.
