Fabric Crafts

I’m not sure how your crafty journey began, but let me quickly tell you about mine. I did crafts with my mother as far back as I can remember, and then in second grade I took art classes at school after the day ended. I also remember that one of my assignments was to paint something I owned, so I painted my Cabbage Patch Kid, Sarah.

By the way, how can I recall this stuff when I can’t remember what I had for lunch yesterday? I don’t know.

Anyway, when I was about 10 years old I lived in Louisville, Kentucky, and my mom sent me to sewing camp at Baer Fabrics downtown. That was my first exposure to a “real” craft class with adults. We brought bag lunches and spent the entire day sewing. And I was the youngest one by far. The only child in a room of all adults.

I hated it at the time.

Having said that, I appreciate it now. I learned so much, and it was my first official foray into being creative on my own in an environment outside of school or home. A lot of people don’t know that working with fabric is where it all began for me. Obviously I had no idea at the time that I would one day be writing about my craftventures!

And all that I’ve mentioned so far brings me to where I am right now.

I have been a sewist since ten years old, and as a result I’ve always had fabric around my domicile. Fabric that I have used for sewing, but since I started decoupage . . . it’s been used more for fabric crafts. And that’s what I’m sharing with you today!

I absolutely love working with fabric, and not just with my sewing machine. There are tons of no-sew crafts with fabric that you can do, and I’ve got a whole list for you. If you’ve got leftover pieces and scraps from sewing projects, you’re going to love these.

But before you dive in, I want to answer a very important question I know you’re all going to have:

What Mod Podge formula should I use with fabric?

The answer is, you can use any formula. The ONLY time you’ll need to use Fabric Mod Podge is when you are adhering fabric to fabric and you want it to be washable. Like if you are attaching a patch to a shirt and you don’t want to sew.

Otherwise, just grab a bottle of Gloss, Matte, or another finish of your choice. It’s really up to you!

If you enjoy fabric crafts just as much as I do, I’d love for you to take a peek at these projects. Then let me know what think about them in the comments. And also let me know how you use up extra fabric or scraps! Enjoy and happy crafting.
