At the end of the rainbow

| For Kids, Holidays, Tutorial

pot of gold

Here’s a super quick (5 minute) tutorial for a pot of gold!  You’ll need 1 piece of 8″x12″ black felt (or other color of your choice), the pattern, and your “gold”.

Cut out 2 pattern pieces (on fold).  Sew around the edge with 1/8″ seam (shown here in light colored thread).

Pull corners out (on the bottom of the pot) making the bottom flat.  Measure 3/4″ from corner point and mark a line.  Sew.  Repeat on other side.  Trim excess.

Turn right side out and roll the top down 3/4″ and then roll down again another 3/4″.  If you like you can tack down the rolled edge with a needle and thread or some fabric glue.  Fill with gold and you’re done.  Finished measurements: 3 1/4″ tall and 3″ in diameter.  I think I’m going to use mine at the breakfast table and fill them with KIX for the kiddos.  Happy St. Patty’s Day!
