This pattern is a perfect scrap busting project to make wonderful patchwork, scallop edge fabric pots. You can tailor make your pots to suit your plants or use to store your crafty bits and bobs. The pots can be be made free standing or suspended with cord at a window- its up to you!
This easy to make fun pattern includes full size templates for two pot diameter sizes: small 13cm (5") or large 18cm (7") and an easy to follow step by step colour photo/illustrated instruction booklet.
The pots can be made in a choice of two versions:
Version A which is segmented all around the side edge
Version B has a top border band, as well as segments of different fabric along the lower side (see image 6).
You can also stitch on an optional trimming such as Ric-Rac or little pom-poms along the seam line as an extra feature.
Transparent PVC can be added to the lining but this is not essential, alternatively, you can just pop a plastic container inside to protect the base (empty hummus pots or a small plastic bag are good).
Please note: water the plant outside of the pot and replacing when all the excess water has drained off.
Please note all instructions are written in English with metric and imperial measurements. Sized templates are included in the pattern.
