Although the two little balls and rings above don’t appear to be much, they are fabulous little contraptions from Maggies The Original Fashion Magnet! “Maggies are super powerful fashion magnets designed to securely fasten your fabrics together without pins or knots.” And let me tell you, they certainly do!

Maggies are powerful little American-made fashion magnets designed to hold several layers of your favorite fabrics together. Hiding behind the scenes and under the seams, Maggies allow you to wear your scarves, shawls or sarongs in ways only fashionistas dream about. Just snap together an outfit out of a shawl, scarf or sarong and head out the door. You’ll go from flat to flattering in seconds!

So I did. Although I wasn’t about to leave the house in just a sarong, as it’s cold here! So I experimented by attempting to make a blouse (or, as close to it as I could) with my own scarf!

Disregard my messy room….
 

Not too shabby I think! Although I won’t quit my day job to become a fashion designer just yet. :) But I digress.

Here’s what I thought about Maggies!

Pros:

  • The magnets are really powerful. Once they were attached it was a pain to pull them apart. That’s a good thing for holding the fabrics in place!
  • The magnets didn’t damage the fabric. I didn’t see any dents or creases when I removed them.
  • They held! I only wore this for the photo, but I had constructed it downstairs and ran upstairs to take a picture and it held up!

Con:

  • The magnets are really powerful. Although also a pro, they were hard for me to initially pull apart. This isn’t a major con, it just took a good pull and trying not to drop the little ball down the sink drain! :)

All in all, I can’t wait to try Maggies The Original Fashion Magnet again when the weather warms up so I can actually wear what I create!

Would you consider using a fashion magnet instead of safety pins? I can’t recommend these enough!

Disclosure: Although Maggies provided the magnets for the review, all opinions are my own!

    Hello Megan,

    Thank you for reviewing Maggies …. I appreciate your honest review, one thing though, they are not meant to be seen. They are not designed for appearance and should be hidden. They are designed to be efficient and functional.

    Thank you,

    Margaret

    They seem really strong, which is great for certain things but I wonder if they would have a negative effect if they get too close to electronics.
