Magnetic tape closureTo close up the bag I was looking for a simple and quick solution, and I decided on the coloured magnetic tape 20 mm. Its holding strength is not great, but for a child's beach bag it's sufficient.
Fitting and usageTo optimise the holding strength of the magnetic tape, I attached one of the two stripes with the magnetic bottom side facing up. It was great that I could sew on the magnetic tape with my sewing machine. Also, I'll be able to wash the beach bag at 60°C, despite the magnetic tape on it. Now, my daughter has a hip beach bag and she can bring her beloved dogs on vacation.
Note from the supermagnete team: Since June 2016 we also carry sew-in neodymium magnets in our assortment. They are machine washable as well and significantly stronger than this magnetic tape.
