"What am I going to do with my pile of old t-shirts? I'm going to wear them. The ones that are now retired are mostly used already. I've made bracelets, though not with jewels as shown here, children's clothes and pj's, and quilts beyond belief! It certainly is fun to be creative with something everyone has and most throw away! Thanks for more ideas."

- Lining fabric
- Sewing machine and thread
- Terracotta flowerpots
- Plastic drip tray
- The Original Orange-handled Scissors™ (8")
- Amplify® Mixed Media Shears (8")
Use the plastic drip tray or the top rim of the flowerpot (whichever is larger) as a template by laying it on top of the burlap fabric. Draw around the circle adding an extra 1” and cut out using the 8” Amplify® Mixed Media Shears.
Next, determine the required length of the rectangle of fabric that will be the sides of your planter cover. Measure the diameter of the circle cut in step 1. The length of the rectangle will be the diameter of the circle multiplied by 3.14. The width of the rectangle will be determined by measuring the height of the flowerpot and adding 6”. To accurately cut burlap, mark the measurement points and pull out an entire thread from the burlap. Once you have removed one thread of burlap from the weave, you'll have a straight and accurate cutting line. Cut the burlap using the 8” Mixed Media Shears.
Cut a piece of lining fabric using the Orange Handled Scissors and adhere to the same measurements as the rectangle in the previous step.
Pin the burlap rectangle to the lining rectangle with the wrong sides of the fabric facing each other. Join the two short ends of both fabrics together and stitch to create a cylinder. Fold back the raw edges of the seam allowance and stitch down to reinforce the seam.
Turn the cylinder so that the lining fabric is on the outside. Pin the circle you cut in step 1 to the bottom of the cylinder and sew around the perimeter and continue to turn the planter cover to the right side.
Place the drip tray and flowerpot in the planter cover and check sizing. Turn over the top edge of the planter cover to reveal the contrast lining.
