Easy Fashion Crafts for Kids

It's fun and easy to make fashion crafts for kids.
Here are some fun projects for any time of the year.

It's a girl thing!

Fashion crafts for kids: Now we can combine our love of crafts with our passion for fashion, jewellery and accessories.

And to do so doesn't mean we have to start making our own clothing or that we need to master fashion design - unless, of course, you want to.

It's much, much simpler than that!

We can simply apply a fashion theme to our paper crafting or foam craft and see where our creativity takes us.

Paper Bead Necklace and Bracelet Project

Paper Bead Necklace and Bracelet Project

So let's make a start on some fashion crafts for kids right now with my paper bead necklace and bracelet project.

This makes a fun and inexpensive party or sleepover activity as well as being a fun craft to brighten up a rainy day.

Although the beads are quite easy to make, making enough beads to create a whole necklace and, perhaps, a bracelet as well, takes a little time and patience but the end results can be quite rewarding.

For a party, I would suggest cutting up the lengths of paper in advance, then all they'll need to do is just twist and glue!

Try a mixture of bright and pastel colours (plenty of pink, of course). Gold and silver metallic or holographic paper would be fun too.

Clothes Line Card and Handbag Cards

Clothes Line Card

Speaking of parties and special occasions, my clothes line card and handbag cards are popular with fashion-conscious girls of all ages - and that includes mums, grandmas and aunties too.

So, if you need to create a card for someone special, try these projects out for yourself.

The handbag card is a little unusual but very simple to make and despite what you might imagine, will fold flat quite easily to fit into a standard envelope for posting if you need to.

Felt Purse

Felt Purse project

My little felt purse, simply stitched with contrasting thread and decorated with a little ribbon bow, is easy and inexpensive to make as a little gift or to sell at a fundraising event.

You can make it whatever size you like. Not just for coins, it can be used as a jewellery keeper too.

Foam Bangle or Heart Bracelet

Foam Bangle project

Little girls will love to make their own foam bangle or heart bracelet too. This project would be another ideal activity for a party or sleepover with a fashion crafts for kids theme.

You'll soon realise that I just love crafting with fun foam: it's so versatile and easy to work with - so simple to cut and glue.

If you're not already addicted to kids crafts with foam and foam shapes and foam stickers, I'd like to guess you soon will be!

So that's got us started on our fashion crafts for kids - and still no sign of a dressmaking pattern!

Remember, crafters hoard things.

It's always a good idea to look out for and keep scraps of interesting or eyecatching fabric, ribbons, lace, braids and pretty buttons and decorations - you never know when you might find a use for them in one of your fashion craft projects.

Keep a treasure box of crafty bits and pieces - it's great fun to have!
