Magnets for Swap

In the Fridge Magnet swap, my partner was @EriChanHime, who had a lot of pretty Japanese things on her Q, so I decided to run with that theme! First I made a couple of felt magnets.

Here’s a koinobori (a carp streamer, flown for Children’s Day):

And next is a torii, or shrine gate:

I was actually having a little trouble making these magnets under her requested size of two inches; apparently most of my felties are slightly larger than that, and while I was pondering other things I could make in a small size, I thought of FIMO! I used to make lots of tiny things with FIMO back when I was in middle school or so, and even though I haven’t used the stuff in decades, I thought it’d be fun to give it another whirl! So here’s my third magnet, an inari fox spirit:

I think it’ll take some more practice to get back to the level I was at before, but after a few tries, I was relatively satisfied with this attempt. :slight_smile:

I love my new magnets so much!! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Roler did a lovely job with all the beautiful tiny details. Every time I think I have a favorite, I change my mind when I look at the next one again! They all remind me of the time I spent living in Japan and all the wonderful things I saw and experienced there. Happy magnets! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I just found felt and I love all of your creations. These are so tiny! You got amazing detail on them. The Fimo fox turned out great too. The fish is my favorite though.
