Mary Link’s No-Sew, Fabric Animals Project


Here’s another great project out of 100+ No-Sew Fabric Crafts for Kids by Mary Link. Make a zany zoo or a dinosaur park for a dresser top. These creatures come with slotted parts that slide together, so the critters can really come to life and stand on their own.  


(for 1 small zoo of animals)

  • ½ yard heavyweight fast2fuse, or two heavyweight fast2fuse craft packs
  • Fabric scraps for each animal
  • Fabric markers (optional)
  • Paper punch (optional)
  • Yarn (optional)
  • Fabric glue (optional)



The patterns for this project are downloadable here. Just click on these 3 links: link A, link B, and link C and they will start downloading automatically.

  1. Trace the patterns onto the fast2fuse and cut them out.
  2. Following manufacturer’s instructions on the fast2fuse packaging, fuse fabric to both sides of each fast2fuse piece and cut. Trim the edges.
  3. Mark the slot lines and cut each slot wide enough for the animal parts to slide smoothly together.
  4. Use a paper punch or a marker to make the eyes.
  5. If desired, dab glue onto the slot points to permanently hold the pieces together.
  6. Add optional yarn details, such as tails and manes.

Extra Fun!

  • Send a dinosaur as a birthday card. Use a fat quarter for each dinosaur.
  • Design and make farm animals.
  • Make an animal mobile.
