To adjust the pattern to fit around your planter, you’ll need to measure your planter and then add extra width and length to fit loosely around it.
The canvas planter pattern consists of 2 shapes: one circular and one rectangular shape.
Wash and dry the fabric prior to sewing, removing promptly from the dryer to reduce wrinkles. Iron out any creases and wrinkles prior to cutting.
Cut two large rectangular pieces measuring to your calculations. In my case, 11.5” wide x 38.7” long.
Cut two circular pieces measuring measuring to your calculations. In my case, 13” wide.
Divide the rectangular pieces by 4 and notch the long sides at 4 evenly spaced spots. Notch the perimeter of the circles at 4 evenly spaced spots.
Working with one rectangular piece at a time, fold the piece in half RIGHT sides together matching the short ends. Sew the edges together with a ½” seam allowance. Repeat with the other rectangular piece.
Using an iron, press the seams open.
Next, take one circle piece and one rectangle piece and align the notches with RIGHT sides together. Pin together if needed.
With a single needle stitch, sew the two pieces together.
This completes the outer layer of the canvas planter. To sew in the the lining, continue with the remaining instructions.
With RIGHT sides together, align the vertical seam from the rectangular pieces with each other. Aligning the notches, sew the two rectangular pieces together.
Fold the seam allowance towards the side with the open bottom and understitch along the seam to hold in place.
Take the other circle piece and align it with the opening matching notches.
Pin together (if needed) and sew together leaving a 4”-5" gap opening.
Turn the piece right wide out through the 4”-5" opening at the bottom.
Stitch the opening closed.
Place your potted plant inside your new modern canvas planter cover and enjoy!
