DIY Fabric Plant Pots
We have shared a lot of DIY planter ideas with our readers over years. But today, we brought something special that we never shared before. These are DIY fabric plant pots that you can easily make yourself by using a sewing machine.
For fabric plant pots, you need to get two different types of fabric. The material which will be used for exterior should be leather and the interior should be any type of fabric which is water resistant or rain resistant. Then you should have a good sewing machine as well that can be used on leather.
Now, you have to decide what will be the size of your fabric pot that you are going to use as a planter. Choose this side carefully by keeping in mind which flower will be planted in that pot.
Take proper measurements, cut the fabric accordingly and then use the sewing machine to create your own DIY fabric plant pot.
