Don’t know what to do when the weather keeps your kids indoors? Ditch conventional art projects that eventually end up collecting dust around your house and try some fashion-forward DIY clothes activities with them! It’s a great way for you and your little ones to get creative together in the comfort of your home.
If you have a flair for DIY, but no experience when it comes to sewing and dressmaking, there are plenty of easy projects that will keep your hands busy! Here are five ideas for the next time everyone in your household is going stir-crazy – why not make something unique today? From apparel to adornments, these simple initiatives can give you a great sense of accomplishment.
Revisit your past memories of carefree days spent in the summer and tie-dye a t-shirt for some old-school fun! Be mindful, though, as you’ll be dealing with dye so it might get messy. Begin by prewashing a plain white shirt then use elastic bands to design spirals, bullseyes, or crumples. To make this project easier on yourself grab an all-inclusive tie-dye kit that will provide everything needed to recreate that classic look.
2. Iron-On Patches

3. No-Sew Infinity Scarf
Infinity scarves are wonderful for both you and your children, but they also serve as one-of-a-kind presents! Just like our other projects, these snuggly wraps don’t call for any sewing talents – simply make them with ease!
All you need to make the scarf is:
- Unleash your creativity with two yards of fabric! Whether it’s cotton, jersey, flannel or fleece—the possibilities are endless.
- iron-on adhesive tape
- sharp scissors or rotary cutter
This is a simple and affordable project. Two yards of fabric will make two scarves, so why not keep one for yourself and give the other away as an incredible present?
4. Multi-Strand T-Shirt Necklace

The best part is, it only takes about 10 minutes with minimal crafting skills required! You just pick the type and design you want from Pinterest (you can go simple or more elaborate) then grab your old tees to get started. And voila – a quick and easy way to create something truly special.
