Prepare supplies

1. In addition to supplies list, you will need one small clay potted plant.

Create pattern for Burlap Planter Cover base.

1. Trace the circumference of the widest part of your planter on to the wrong side of the burlap by hovering your quilt pen along the edge of the planter.

Hint: If your clay pot is empty, you can simply turn the pot upside down and trace the circumference.

2. Add ¼” (0.5 cm) seam allowance to the outside of the circle tracing.

3. Cut out. This piece will be the base of your planter cover.

Create pattern for body & assemble Burlap Planter Cover.

1. Measure the circumference of the widest (top) part of the planter. Add ½” (1.3 cm) to this measurement (A).

2. Measure the height of the planter. Add 1 ½” (3.8 cm) to this measurement (B).

3. Measure and cut a piece of burlap measuring A x B.

4. Fold this piece widthwise with right sides facing. Join short ends together by sewing with a ¼” (0.5 cm) seam allowance, creating a burlap tube.

5. Pin the planter base to the burlap tube on one end with right sides facing.

6. Sew along pinned edge with a ¼” (0.5 cm) seam allowance. Turn right side out.

Create label & finish Burlap Planter Cover.

1. Peel back paper top from the PeelnStick™ sheet.

2. Press adhesive side on the wrong side of a fabric charm square.

3. Trace and cut out the shape of your choice.

4. On the right side of the fabric shape, use fabric markers to write a message or identify the plant.

5. Peel back second paper layer of PeelnStick™ and press with your fingers to adhere to the right side of the planter cover.

6. Fold down top edge of the planter cover toward the right side by one ¼” (0.5 cm), press. Fold down again by 1” (2.5 cm) and press to create cuff. Place pot in planter.

Hint: For a more rustic look, fray the edge of the cuff instead of folding back ¼” (0.5 cm).
