B
fleece & the template
B
linen piece
 
If you like, you can add a wee stamp or embellishment to the right corner

I then just stitched it onto a wee scrap & onto the linen front
STEP 3: Insert Your Magnetic Snaps
 
Your snap set should have 4 parts: 2 washers (which
won’t be visible) & 2
magnetic snaps. Take the thicker & heavier of the two & one of thewashers & your linen piece.
 
Using the X on the template as a guide, mark the position of the snap onthe OUTER side of the linen piece
 
Using the washer as a template, lay it down on the fabric over the X, &mark where you need to make wee holes to be able to insert the magneticsnap prongs easily through the fabric. Use these marks as a guide towhere you need to make wee TINCY incisions with your seam ripper.
 
Take one of the
2”
squares, &, using the washer (back of the magneticsnap) as a template, mark the position of the side slots using your fabricmarker. Make small incisions in this with your seam ripper. 
 
Push the prongs of the magnetic snap through the wee slits in the fabricto the wrong side. Place the backing fabric/interlining over the prongs.
