Dove Themed Kitchen Magnets

My project for today is a set of refrigerator magnets. These can either be sewn on the machine or glued together for the sewing challenged.

Gen 8:11 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, see, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.
These were made of felt. The outside measurements are 3 3/4 inches by 2 5/8 inches. The inner panel (red) is 3 1/2 inches x 2 1/8 inches. First I layered the red and gold together and sewed a straight stitch around the red edges. Then I layered that to another piece of felt cut to the same size as the outside measurements and again sewed a straight stitch around the edges. I proceeded to add the doves and again sewed them on with a running stitch by hand. Small beads were added for eyes and the olive twig consisted of a piece of heavy thread and cut out felt leaves. Once it was all assembled I cut a piece of sheet magnet a bit smaller than the outside measurements for each magnet and glued it to the backs.

This is the pattern I drew up. You are welcome to copy it. Enjoy!

 Psa 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love you.
