...Making a skirt for your flower pot...

I bet that many of us (girls especially) love flowers and skirt...why??? because they are cute =)

So, after a long thought...for my entry in Gisele's Birdie-Know-it-All Tutorial contest, i choose to have a tutorial on how to make a flower pot's skirt.

I can confirm you that it will be the simplest, nice,unique,economic and fun tutorial. What is more important..this tutorial can be accomplished by everyone!!Even though you are not a pro in sewing..like me..:mHihi: or you do not have a sewing machine, you still can make your own pot's skirt in just a few hours.
Before we start our tutorial, i would like to introduce to all of you with Gisele's Birdie-Know-it-All Tutorial contest...

Now, we can start our sewing class...

step 1:

collect all the tools we need


step 2:

then, sketch our own flower pot's skirt..


step 3:

Take the measurement of our flower pot and make a draft for the skirt's component.


step 4:

Now, we can cut our jeans according to the measurement (reminder; don't cut your favorite jeans) If you don't have any wasted jeans, you can always buy this pieces of jeans from any jeans outlet... You can also use any other fabric that you like.


step 5:

Now, we can start to sew our pot's skirt =) You can choose threads from any colour as long as it can make your skirt look more gorgeous..

Firstly, sew the skirt flirty and each of skirt's end
Then, sew the skirt and belt together

Next, we can sew the button at each end of the skirt..It is optional, you also can use Velcro or zip for the skirt.


wow..we are almost in the finishing step. Don't you excited?? =)
Now, to decorate the pot's skirt, we can make our own ribbon by a piece of jeans and sew it.

step 6:

For the final touch, I choose to put some diamond on it because I love Bling Bling..hihi.. if you do not have a diamond it can be replaced by buttons, flower stickers or beads to make the skirt look more glamorous...it depends on your creativity... Lastly, give a big round of plows to ourselves...wiiiiii
