- cylindrical pot (works a lot better than a bowl fashion pot)
- previous sweater
- stitching machine
1. Begin by chopping the sweater in your pot. It would be best to minimize a big piece large enough to fold in half and wrap across the pot (reduce bigger and measure down, it’s all the time simpler to chop off greater than to attempt to add materials later!). In case your sweater is on the small aspect and you’re utilizing a bigger pot, you could possibly simply merely minimize off the underside portion of the sweater and hem the highest. If not, proceed on to steps 2-four.
2. Fold the piece of sweater inside out, pin, and stitch alongside the size of the lengthy edge.
three. Utilizing the open ends of the piece, pull the appropriate aspect of the sweater out. Match up the 2 brief ends of the duvet and stitch collectively.
four. Flip the duvet over once more in order that the seam of the 2 brief ends faces inwards in the direction of the pot. Pull over the pot to make sure that it matches. Make modifications to measurement if needed.
5. Take the duvet off the planter and plant the plant inside. As soon as the planter is clear with the plant inside, pull the duvet again up and over the pot to complete the undertaking!
Make a couple of planter covers in several colours, sizes and textures on your numerous pots and planters. Get artistic and add buttons (you may do that to switch step four if desired). These are good to “maintain your pots heat” till the nice and cozy climate comes once more and it’s time to convey your crops again outdoors!
You could have some leftover sweater after this venture, save for different nice tasks like a pillow, sweater stocking or espresso sleeve!
