Twelve ideas for making crafts with velvet fabric.

1. Velvet Fabric Pincushion.

I wanted to make a pincushion for a while now, but I couldn’t find a suitable sumptuous fabric. Then one day, while browsing through my stash of materials, I found this velvet, and it caught my eye! It was perfect for making a pincushion with a little bit of sparkle.

Stamping is another craft that doesn’t require any sewing skills at all. For these stamps, I chose velvet ribbon, some pieces of fabric, and I made two different designs.

The first design I stamped with black ink, and the second design I stamped with white ink.

This wall hanging is effortless to make and looks super cute when hung over your bed. Sometimes ad a touch of luxury.

All you need is some strips of fabric, thread, needle, and scissors. Then you cut out shapes from the material and stitch them together.

Gift bags are always lovely to give to friends and family. This gift bag is especially nice because you can personalize it with names, dates, or other messages.

You could also add a few trinkets inside. If you don’t want to sew, there are plenty of places where you can buy pre-made gift bags. You can use leftover fabric pieces for these bags.

Pillow covers are lovely to keep pillows looking new longer. They are also an excellent way to personalize your room. These pillow covers are straightforward to make and look stunning. However, you will need a pillow form and a zipper foot.
