WHAT YOU NEED...
- Fabric: Spotty green, white, pink
- Bonda web
- Curtain interlining
- Pink cord
- Sewing machine and matching thread
- Scissors and pins
- Hot water bottle
Hot Water Bottle Cover - 1 Two rectangles in spotty fabric, 7cm longer and wider than your hot water bottle then two more in curtain interlining. From white lining fabric trim two rectangles the same width but 1.5cm longer than the first rectangles.
2 Lay the two spotty rectangles right sides facing then position a curtain interlining on either side sandwiching the spotty fabric inside. Stitch down each side and across the base with a 1cm seam allowance. Trim the bulk from the corners, then turn the bag to the right side. Tease out the corners and press flat.
3 Repeat the process with the two white lining pieces leaving a gap in the stitching line at the base. Place the spotty bag inside the upturned white one. Match the side seams together then stitch through all the layers around the top of the bag with a 1.5cm seam allowance.
4 Turn the cover to the right side through the gap in the base of the lining. Hand-stitch the gap closed then fold the lining inside the cover; the extra length creates a white border around the top of the cover.
5 Make a row of stitching through all layers 8cm below the top-edge right around the cover then another row of stitching 1.5cm below the first line to form a channel. Unpick the few stitches between the stitched channel in both side seams.
6 Attach a safety pin to the end of pink cord. Thread the cord through the unpicked hole around the channel and out where it entered. Repeat the process entering through the opposite side seam.
7 Make two pink pom-poms then stick or stitch the ends of the cords into them. Adhere Bonda web to the back of a small pink heart shape then attach to the front. Place the hot water bottle inside the cover, pull the cord in opposite directions to gather the top then tie in a bow.
HANGING SUCCULENT GARDEN DECOR
I just love succulents! I have so many succulents around my house. I can’t get enough of them! Well let me clarify. I have a lot of FAUX succulents in my house. I don’t really have a green thumb and have keeping plants alive so I love succulents and have several around my house. For that reason I wanted to create a fun DIY hanging succulent garden to put in my home for some fun wall decor. This requires no soil and no watering! It is right up my alley! It does however require a few supplies and a hot glue gun. Which is also right up my alley! So grab your supplies and let’s get crafting today!
You will begin by removing the stems from all of the succulents. On most of the succulents the stem pulled right off but on some of them they needed to be snipped off.
Once the succulent stems are removed you will arrange your succulents onto the wood pallet. And then you will use a hot glue gun to glue them into place. I left my pallet unfinished because I liked the look but you may also paint or stain it.
