Fabric Patchwork Plant Pots 5



We have a fantastic art gallery near us called Arts Bank (yep it used to be a bank and now it is a gallery).  It is somewhere both me and the boys love to go.  They have five floors of artwork and also a fab cafe on the ground floor. We visited again recently and I was inspired by some patchwork that we saw to make Fabric Patchwork pots (we gave them to my MIL for Mothers Day, so I didn’t want to spoil the surprise as she reads my blog)!.  I am also on the lookout in the charity hops for some lampshades I can transform too.  I

Materials

  • Terracotta plant post (but you could use plastic ones too)
  • A selection of Fabric.  I used  Hunky Dorky by Moda, which I had in my stash
  • Mod Podge or watered down PVA as per Kelly’s post 
  • A brush or sponge applicator
  • Clear spray sealant (if you want to use them outside)

Use scraps of fabric to make beautiful fabric patchwork plant pots.  These make beautiful gifts and are simple to make.

Method

I cut up my fabric in to a selection of squares and rectangles.

Then I coated the pot with Mod Podge, before arranging a square on top and covering with yet more Mod Podge, before placing another piece of fabric on the flower pot.

When ever I added a piece that went over the top or bottom of the pot, I made sure to snip the fabric vertically (cut slits), so it folded better and prevented puckering.

Once the whole pot was covered, I made sure that all the fabric was coated with Mod Podge and allowed it to dry for 24 hours.

As I was giving the pots as a gift, I made sure that I protected them with Rust-oleum Crystal clear in Matt, which I also used for my coasters.

As it happens, Kat from Housewife Confidential also posted some patchwork flower pots last week and hers are much neater than mine!
