How to Make a Fabric Hanging Windsock...an easy sewing craft project for kids to make

 

Directions on how to sew a fabric windsock.

 

What you will need : fabric, thread, needle, ribbon, pipe cleaner (optional)

Note: This project can be sewn by hand or machine.

 
Pin It
Windsocks can be made any size. Cut your fabric into a rectangle about the size you want your windsock. This one is 10" x 8",  you could do the same, or make a bigger one 15" x 10".
Easy to sew fabric windsock directions. Next, turn the LONG sides of your fabric 1/2 " to UGLY SIDE of fabric and pin, as shown in the picture.
A fabric windsock is a great project for kids to sew and make. Sew along the edge of the pressure foot down both seams. (bottom and top) as shown in the photo.
To help keep your windsock a nice round shape, put a pipe cleaner through the top seam as shown in the picture.  Please note: You do not have to do this step, if you don't have a pipe cleaner around the house.
Directions on how to sew a fabric windsock. Now let's add the ribbons.  You can add as many ribbons as you want.  I added 6 to mine.  You can make your ribbons as long as you want.  I made my ribbons 12 inches.  Pin one ribbon at a time to the BOTTOM of your windsock as shown.
Stitch along the seam sewing over your ribbons to hold them in place.
Fold Windsock in half with pretty sides of fabric together and the ribbons at the bottom. Pin as shown down the side seam of the windsock in the photo.  Sew down the seam you just pinned. Your windsock should be a circle now.
Here's how to make a fabric windsock, a great sewing project for kids to sew. Cut one more ribbon for your handle.  Pin it to the top of your windsock and stitch in place. Be careful not to sew the top of your windsock circle closed. Pin the other end of the handle to the other side of your windsock and sew.  Great Job! Your Fabric Windsock is Done.
