I found this at Spenser's Alley, a wonderful craft "mini mall" here in Salem, OR where I live.
You can get sheets of magnets, then peel off the back and adhere any fabric you like. This is older style mattress fabric they used for pillows and such called "ticking".
Then, you simply trace around the shape you want and cut with a heavy duty scissors.
This star is just one of hundreds of shapes you can make with cookie cutters, stencils, kid hand tracings, and things you see in craft and coloring books.
The nice thing is, you don't need glue and the whole thing is a magnet, so it keeps things down flatter, like kids school papers, permission slips, etc.
