Just because you don't sew is no reason you and your kids can't have fun with fabric. In fact, Mary Link has thought of over a hundred things you can make and do with fabric and kids. Sounds like a perfect cold day/rainy day activity to us.

The projects use small amounts of fabric so there's little expense and it's a great way to use up scaps. The other component in many of these projects is fusible interfacing which most sewers know is used to stiffen fabric and is easily ironed onto the wrong side of the fabric. The book recommends a double-sided interfacing called fast2fuse which is sold by the quilt and craft focused publisher, C&T Publishing.

C&T Publishing has put two projects on their blog to give you a sense of what kind of projects you'll find in the book. The first is slotted fabric animals - you can find downloadable templates and instructions for a menagerie of beasts and critters. The second is fruit lacing cards - fun to make and fun to play with. Other projects from the book include bookmarks, gift tags, puzzles, ring toss, little houses, bowling, mobiles, party hats and crowns, masks, headbands, coasters, flowers, holiday decorations, etc. Templates for all the shapes you'll need for each project are included.

You can find 100+ No-Sew Fabric Crafts for Kids by Mary Link at C&T Publishing ($16.95 or $9.99 eBook), Amazon or ask for it at your local bookstore.
