Free Friday: Watermelon Magnet

Happy Friday, everyone!  Boy, another week gone already, and another week closer to fall!  I really can't wait.  Fall is the best season, in my humble opinion. 

But until then, it's still summer, and what's summer without watermelon?  Yes, I have yet another variant of the citrus coaster pattern, but this time it's a magnet and a cutie at that!  Stick this on your fridge to help you remember to enjoy summer while it's here :)

Watermelon Magnet

Skill Level:



  • 7-count plastic canvas
  • Red Heart yarn in colors listed in key
  • Magnetic tape
  • Craft glue
  • #16 plastic canvas needle


  1. Cut and stitch plastic canvas according to graph.
  2. Overcast edges using colors of nearby stitches (use the picture above as a guide)
  3. Cut several pieces of magnetic tape to fit on the back of bat magnet. Remove paper from magnets and apply glue to sticky side before attaching to rainbow. This may seem like overkill, but it makes for a very secure bond.

I hope everyone has a fun weekend!  We're going to pick our neighbor's and my MIL's pear trees, then get all the materials needed for canning.  Sounds like a long and busy week ahead of me!
