I've made these super easy plant pot covers using gorgeous Craft Cotton Company fabric designed by The Tiny Garden, but you don't have to use these cubes just for plants! They could be great storage boxes for your sewing room, or choose a fun fabric for a kids bedroom, they would also make great gifts!
I used 1 fat quarter pack (5 pieces) and a plain fabric for the middle.
What you'll need for 1 cube:
5 x 6" squares of outer fabric and 5 x 6" squares of lining fabric
1 22" by 6" piece of fabric for the border
12" by 18" single sided fusible fleece - I used Bosal
4 eyelet rings for handles (optional)
60" rope or cord for handles (optional)
Use 1/4” seam allowance
1. Cut out 5 x 6” squares of the outer fabric.
Cut 5 x 6” squares of the lining fabric.
Cut out border fabric 22” by 6”
2. Iron the outer pieces to fusible fleece and cut out.
3. Sew 4 of the outer pieces right sides together to make a strip then sew the two ends right sides together to make a tube.
4. Sew in the base and turn right side out.
5. Repeat steps 3&4 for the lining.
6. For the boarder, sew the ends right sides together to form a tube.
7. Fold in half wrong sides together.
8. Place the lining inside the outer cube wrong sides together, then place the border inside the lining so all raw edges meet at the top.
9. Sew together with a 1/2 inch seam allowance. 10. fold the broader over the top to desired length
optional - add eyelets to 2 sides of the cube using manufacturers instructions, tie the rope or cord through the holes to create handles! Its so simple but I think it really finishes off the project and makes them look shop bought. Click on the link to see a video on how to make these cubes! - https://youtu.be/X0xntD9qUTs
