We have put together a list of fabric crafts that are both fun and easy to make! Most of these creative fabric projects do not require sewing. Check-out the ideas below for fabric craft inspiration.
Decoupage Fabric Projects
Decoupage is an easy craft to master. The name “decoupage” is derived from the French word “découper,” which means to cut out or cut from something else. Fabric is cut and then applied directly to the object using special paste or glue. No sewing necessary! Mod Podge is a popular decoupage paste. There are many, many different fabric craft options and tutorials on their site. Wouldn’t Anna Maria Horner’s Welcome Home fabric look amazing on furniture?
