A few days ago, I put a post about Pattern Tamers - magnetic strips to help follow the lines on patterns.
I bought four different sized magnetic strips and planned on looking for a magnetic board to go with them.
I was clearing up my work bench, putting some bead packets into an empty biscuit tin, when I picked up the lid ....
Don't need to buy a magnetic board now - the lid is very shallow at the sides, so it slipped under the pattern page in the book no problem and the magnetic strips worked a treat.
A bodge? A bodged job usually means a messed up piece of repair work but for some reason, I like to call it 'Getting summat for nowt'.
Anyway, if anyone is looking for a magnetic board - check for empty tins lying about the place first. The tin I was using was left over from Christmas goodies.
Anyone else knows of other 'bodges', do tell.
