27So I may have taken my plant love and pot making to another level and made a few mini fabric pots! I have always found teeny tiny plants super cute and since places like Plantasjen and Mester Grønn stock these itty bitty plants regularly, they’re very reasily available in Norway.
If you’ve seen my previous post for making fabric pots for medium to large sized pots, this is basically just another method for making fabric pots or baskets that is far easier, but not as precise, which makes it great for teeny tiny versions of my previous fabric pots.
- Exterior fabric (medium to heavy weight fabric with little stretch)
- Interior fabric (rain-resistant fabric, but anything plastic like, shower resistant or water resistant would work)
- Sewing Machine
- Cut out your a rectagle from both interior and exterior fabrics. For a 6cm diameter pot I made it about 25cm in length and about 12cm in height. You might have to experiment a bit to get the sizing right.
- Fold each piece in half longways with the right sides of the fabric facing each other.
- Sew along two of the three open edges. It should look like the image above.
- Pinch the bottom corners of each fabric piece and pin each corner into flat triangles.
- Sew across each corner and cut off the excess.
- Turn the exterior piece right side out.
- Place the interior into the exterior piece, wrong sides facing each other.
- Push the interior all the way down.
- Sew along the top of the pot to secure everything in place.
- Fold the top down inside the pot and encure that all raw edges are hidden.
And done! This is a super quick and simple way of making fabric pots. It’s obviously not perfect as there are still raw edges, but you are the only one aware of it 😉
