Here’s the DIY for the felt aloe vera planter
Grab your sheet of felt and your pencil and begin drawing out the leaves. Aloe vera leaves vary in width and size, make yours all types of sizes and whereas this planter has six leaves, you determine what number of your plant could have. Remember to make the leaves large sufficient as you may be filling with Poly-fil Ultra Plush fiber fill.
Make the leaves
Cut out your leaves and hold the units collectively for once you prepare handy sew them collectively.
When you begin hand stitching, you determine on the way you need the stitching to look. I made a decision to start out my sew on the within and go from the within then on the skin. I really like the the stitching provides it a hand-crafted look. Also the stitches resemble the spiked ends on the leaves of an precise aloe vera plant. After you’ve sewn your entire leaves it’s time so as to add within the Fairfield Poly-fil Plush fiber. Remember to not sew the bottoms of the leaves. Leave about half an inch unsown on the backside so you possibly can stuff it and fill all the way in which up.
Using a pencil, I used to be in a position to fill every aloe leaf with the Fairfield Poly-fil Ultra Plush fiber. I really like the way it provides the leaves dimension and it makes the plant look alive and animated. And how about that pencil? Crafty por vida my pals! Always! You see how the underside of the leaf was left open?
Now that the leaves are all crammed and look tremendous cute, let’s contemplate how we should always hold all of them collectively. While you can individually glue them into the pot, an precise aloe vera plant develop from one , so let’s hold them collectively. To hold all the leaves I made a decision to seize the needle and thread and stitched them collectively on the backside. Make positive to rearrange them as you’ll need them within the pot. Once they’re stitched, it’ll be a little bit of bother to unstitch and reshape the plant to your liking. Remember, there isn’t a proper method to do that, the aloe vera plant does what it desires, so this craft can have the leaves going all which methods.
OMG! So cute!
