  • Fabric Markers I found mine at Jo-ann Fabrics and Crafts
  • A sewing project cut out
  • Packing Tape


  • Start by picking a project that has a section you’d want to feature kid art. I recommend starting small like the neck ruffle, a pocket, or border hem.
  • Cut the pieces out and then tape the piece you want them to decorate right side up to a table. This will stabilize the fabric making it easier to draw on. I also recommend taping over any space that you need for seam allowances (you don’t want to cut off their masterpiece). I did not do this but both girls made designs that had a center so I wish that I wish that I would have marked the center on their fabric. T’s was a bit off so I just hacked off some of one of the ends of the ruffle so it would fall more center.
  • Then let them go at it!
  • After that all you have to do is assemble your project like normal.
