Magnetic Mailbox for Cruise Ship Cabin Door - Tutorial Tuesday

It's Tutorial Tuesday and today I have something I've used every single day for a full month.

Looking for more sewing and crafting projects? 

Magnetic Mailbox Sewing Project for Cruise Ship Cabin Door

If you’ve been on a cruise before you know you get lots of papers. Like bunches and bunches every single night. The daily paper that has the rundown of the next day’s activites, the invitations to the art auction and health seminar, the ads for the boutiques and spa specials.

On some ships there are mailboxes installed on the wall to collect all those papers. On some ships there aren’t so the steward is placing the papers in your door handle, sliding them under the door, or placing them on the bed. If you’re on one of the ship without mailboxes – like the Caribbean Princess that now has a just a screen instead of the mailbox, here is a project to help you – and your steward – find a place to put all those papers. Since the door (and the walls for that matter) are magnetic, today we are making this magnetic mailbox.


Along with your regular sewing supplies, for this project you will need:
12” x 12” backing fabric
10” x 10” front fabric
7 ½” x 11 ½” fabric for pocket, cut 2
10” x 10” Fuse-N-Shape™
6 ½” x 10½” HeatnBond ®
9 ½” long strip magnet, cut 2
10 ½” length of ½” wide bias tape
