Make clothing with just one fat quarter or with your scrap fabric! These projects use both woven and knit fabric, and there are fat quarter baby sewing projects and children’s sewing projects!
As fun as it is to sew home decor or accessories, sewing clothing will always be what I love most. It’s the most exciting and satisfying to me.
When I can make clothing out of scraps or one fat quarter, I feel like I deserve a special medal or trophy. I feel like I want to yell, “I made a shirt out of scraps!” or “I made a skirt out of a fat quarter!”
Since these sewing projects use smaller amounts of fabric, most of them are fat quarter baby sewing projects, but some are for older children and adults too.
I’ve put together a big list of fat quarter clothing projects with both knit or woven fabric. Some are labeled as specifically working with fat quarters and some are scrap fabric projects.
The great thing about sewing is you get to choose what works for you! Do you love sewing? Check out some of these projects!

what is a fat quarter?
A fat quarter is a quarter of fabric, but instead of cutting in straight across the yardage which would be 9 inches tall by 42 inches wide, it’s cut from one side creating a rectangle that is 18 inches tall and 21 inches wide.
It gives you a little more freedom in what you can create since it’s taller than a regular quarter of fabric.
