Repurposing Fabric to Make Wall Hanging for Kids

This project is one where I actually knew what I would do with the fabric remnant before I even bought it. Easy peasy and I think it looks pretty cool.

Materials Needed

– Fabric Panel – Coordinating Fabric – Fusible Fleece – Backing Fabric – Stick or Dowel – Twine

Step 1: Square up your fabric panel.

My panel ended up being 29″ x 49″ before it was sewn. My final hanging ended up at 27″ x 53″.

I used another fabric remnant I’d bought in a scrap bag that was long and thin and cut it down to 29″ wide and 7″ high.

Step 2: Create the  hanging loop.

Fusible Fleece or batting

I ironed the fleece to the back side of the front fabric panel and then after sewing I ironed it from the back to fuse the back fabric down.

Step 3: Sew it up!

I placed my hanging loop along the top of my fabric panel with the raw edges meeting and then pinned the backing fabric down on top.

I sewed all the way around the edge of my panel with a 1/4″ seam allowance.
