DIY Sewn Flower Pot Covers, a.k.a. Plant Bags


Hope your days are going well. I've got a new sewing pattern for you. These plant bags are easy to make and they don't take much fabric. In this post, I will also let you know how you can add handles or make your plant bag a hanging planter. That version is my favorite.

The pattern includes instructions for three sizes of bags, 4", 6", and 8".

To get the printable sewing pattern, you'll need to sign up for my newsletter. You can do that here. Once you confirm your subscription, the pattern will be emailed to you. While your waiting for your pattern to arrive and your planning your fabrics. Here are a couple of options for your bags.      

To make the hanging bag above. You'll need three pieces of rope or cording the length you would like your bag to hang, plus another 6-8". With the plant bag folded over, mark three places around the top of the bag so they are space evenly. This will ensure your plant hangs evenly too. Tuck the rope under the tab and sew around the outside of the tab at each marking. Be sure to catch both the folded over flap and the layer of bag underneath when sewing. 

Bring all three ropes together at the top and tie a knot and your bag is ready to hang.
Handles are made the same way as above. Once your bag is sewn, cut a couple of squares from faux leather. Use a rope or cording and tuck the raw edges under the tabs before sewing to each side of the bags.

Have a great day,
