I am so pleased to introduce you to my new pattern The Plant Pot that has just joined the Emkie Lite range 🙂
The Plant Pot is a very versatile little pot! It makes the perfect gift for a housewarming or birthday, while also having a number of other uses…use it in your sewing room to store items, or as a thread catcher near your sewing machine; another great use for this pot is in your children’s play spaces to store smaller toys!
The finished size of The Plant Pot measures approximately 4 3/4″ High & approximate Diameter of 5 ½” (12cm H x 14cm D). This Pot has been designed to be made using leather/faux leather/vinyl Tab, however fabric (eg. Quilting Cotton, or another woven fabric) can be used instead.
This pattern isn’t materials or hardware heavy either…
But let’s take a moment to have a look over the lovely tester Pots!
Susan made these 3 beautiful versions, here she shows the versatility of this pattern by storing hardware in one, a plant in another and some fat 1/4’s rolled up in the third! Susan says “I LOVED this pattern and will definitely make more! There’s so many options on how to use these….potted plants, storage for sewing, like hardware, fat quarters, clips, scraps, the list goes on. They will also make great gifts!”
Charlotte made this beautiful Echino version. Charlotte says “I loved that it was such a fast project. Will definitely sew this project again.”
Danielle made this gorgeous version in black, white grey and gold. Danielle says “It is a multipurpose pot that would be a great gift! So many different things could go inside, plant, stationery, lollies!”

Nancy says “This is a versatile pattern with many uses such as notion holder, thread or scrap catcher, hair bow or barrette holder, kids small toys that might get lost easily etc. I will be making many more! I keep thinking of more uses for them. Would also make a really nice gift. Love the pattern!”
Toni made these elegant black and white versions. Toni says “Love the pattern! It’s a great, quick sew that is so easy to personalise with your own touches. You can keep it simple with 2 fabrics or mix it up with some co-ordinating strips for a bright, colourful result. This quick and versatile pattern has so many uses in addition to what it was designed for as well!”
Lindsey made this cute version! Lindsey says “I must say I was blown away with my husband’s reaction. He walked into our kitchen and right away he pick up my pot and said Wow! How useful! A quick sew. From the beginning to the end was an hour. And since our girls love it so much three more will be made ASAP.”
Mel made these veggie inspired plant pots! Mel says “I actually made 2 at once to make a pair. Instructions easy to follow, and a nice, quick sew! Not only for plants, but you could use them to store toys, sewing supplies, hair accessories, coins & things in the car….lots of uses for the handy plant pot!”
Anna says “I loved that it was such a fast project. Will definitely sew this project again. ”
