  • How to sew a fabric planter. Diy Fabric Planters - Step 1
    Step 1

    First you will want to make a stamp (or buy one) out of your eraser. Cut it out and start stamping. Lay out your calico and stamp over the right side of the fabric in the pattern that you want.

    Now you want to cut out your fabrics.

    you will need a circle out of each fabric including interfacing that is 16cm in diameter or adjust to your plant pot. You also need a rectangular piece of each type of fabric including the interfacing measured by 53 cm x 17 cm. If you have changed your sizing measure the circumference of your circle and add 3 cm to it to replace the 53 cm. Adjust the height by your choice.

    Step 3

    Pin each of your different shapes together in this order. Interfacing, inner fabric (colour) right side up, outer fabric right side down. Pin both the circles and rectangles in this order.

    Sew around the edge of each of your shapes with a 1 1/2 cm seam allowance and a empty space to turn inside out.

    Now you need to hand sew (or if you are a sewing whizz, with a machine) the base and sides together.

    Do this by moving the sides around the base and sewing a blanket stitch on the inside. This is a slow process as you have to continually line up the fabrics and it is also going through 6 layers of fabric.
