Making things with fabric is always a satisfying project. If you are like me, you probably have a large stash of fabric and scraps that are just screaming to be made into something. Or, if you don’t have fabric but still want to make something, just take a look in your closet. Chances are that you have some old clothes that you can use for fabric. After you check out some of these DIY fabric crafts, you’ll be itching to use up some of that fabric no matter where it comes from.
Besides making placemats or table runners, there are plenty of other fabric projects to do for the home. One of my favorite crafts to do at Christmas is making a collection of fabric trees. They look so cute on a mantel or shelf. I like to make them out of burlap for a warm rustic look. Another way that I have used burlap is in making burlap flowers. They are so nice for adorning any kind of rustic decor.
This collection of DIY rustic fabric crafts include everyday items as well as lots of seasonal ideas. The nice thing is that no matter what time of the year it is, you can start creating for future use. Start with one project and then let your creativity roll.
