Lately, I have been keeping my eyes open, trying to find crafts for kids that use scrap fabric. My stash of scrap fabric is taking over my studio, and so the other day when I was spring cleaning I decided I needed to let my daughter help me.
First, she made a house. It was much like a gingerbread house, but we used fabric, glue and an old box instead of cookies, icing, and candy.
She also decorated a few paper dolls and a paper horse. The outcome was adorable and it occupied her for days. Along with that, it was a great activity to help with her cutting and gluing skills. I didn’t realize this, but children’s scissors will cut fabric. (I bet they will also cut hair and clothes then –note to self!)
After Monet was all done, I still had gobs of fabric left, so we put together about ten kits for other cousins and friends.
What kid crafts have you done, as a means to use up all that scrap fabric?
