I bought these potted plants about two months ago. I initially wanted to re-pot them into something prettier but finding what I like in the correct size prove to be in vain after 2 long months. :S So, can’t have them looking like this forever… I’ve got tons of fabrics lying around so fabric buckets make alot of sense. What’s great is I can always make new ones when I tire of these.

There are plenty of ‘fabric bucket sewing tutorials’ online, so just google and you should find lots. So, I won’t be posting a step-by-step guide here. Here’s one to start you off though.

Surely something can be done to these pots!

Looking raw…

Material needed; not much is needed really.

Pinning the trimming on the upper edge.

Checked edges done!

Pinning the pieces together.

This sewing step is the most challenging for me; had to pause to turn the fabric umpteen times!

Making slits so that they fabric is not bunched up when I flip them around.

Finished product! Yaysies… they are finally naked no more.

Closeup –  Feel free to add embellishments to make your fabric buckets more interesting. I got these buttons when I was in Sydney, been wanting to use them.

Before and after

I’m happy I finally got these done! 🙂 They are so simple and quick to make and it really makes a difference to how the pots look now. Ideally I would love to make them with laminated fabric so they are waterproof. Oh well… maybe the next ones I make.

Hope this inspires you to make something pretty for your pots. But if not for pots, fabric buckets are great for everything else; toiletries, knick knacks, cloth pegs, etc. Til next time… happy sewing!
