Spring into spring and create some colorful flower pots for Mom.
- 2 coordinating fabrics to fit your flower pot
- Brother Sewing Machine: Pacesetter
- Brother thread
- Measuring tape
Iron your fabrics before cutting for best results.
Measure around the top portion of your flower pot and mark it (ours were 9.5″ wide X 19″ long) and cut out a rectangle, one for each flower pot. Fold and sew each rectangle into a pocket with seams on two sides.
Pull from the middle of the pocket so the seam is center, and create a triangle at the top.
Fold down the top of the triangle and create a seam across the bottom of the triangle. Iron down the top as well.
Now you've got a pocket! Make sure to place the triangle-side down since that is the base, and turn the pod right-side out.
Trim the corners of your fabric, and fold the seams down to create the folded top.
Now you’ve created a flower pod! Repeat these steps for each one, and enjoy.
