Cath Kidston Fabric Flowerpots

A couple of weeks ago I attended a Cath Kidston Craft Evening organised by Jenny and the Magic Feather to make these lovely fabric flowerpots. I wasn’t able to blog about it until now, as the craft evenings are so popular they hold two a month for the same project, and the second evening was today.

Here were our supplies for the night. Don’t those plastic spatulas remind you of art class at school?! There is always much excitement when the button pot comes out.

After a cup of tea with fellow Cambridge craft blogger Suki from The Owl Club, we entered the shop with great excitement and settled down for an evening of pretty floral fabrics and mod podge. GLUE! This was a perfect project for me as I love craft glue and my gardener has been trying to teach me a bit more about plants lately too.

I opted for a floral rose fabric (left hand pot in the above picture) as it matched my oven gloves and could be used for a house plant in my kitchen. I need to cut slits in the bottom so a plant can drain. I decorated it with pale pink ric rac and a felt flower.

The best thing about the evening for me was meeting such lovely people and chatting about craft, hobbies, jobs and our newly formed Cambridge City WI group. There was a real buzz about it as many ladies had heard about the group. Our publicity has obviously worked!

We also had time to do a second smaller pot, so I chose the blue cherry fabric and decorated with some ribbon and a button.

You can read my post on the previous craft evening here. Also take a look at Jenny and the Magic Feather’s blog post about the evening here.

There are plenty of tutorials online for covering a flower pot in fabric. My favourite is this one by Christine Chitnis as she uses teracotta pots and a great selection of fabrics.

Thanks to Jenny and the Cath Kidston girls for another great evening. This project totally fed my addiction for craft glue and covering things!

  1. Your pots are so cute. I wonder if you could do this with the plant already in the pot. I’m thinking some of my pots need a little face lift.

  2. Yey! Lovely write up Claire! Finally allowed too ;D thanks!

    I love my cowboy pot taking center stage in the last photo too!

    Ps. Your rose fabric is ‘cut roses’ – just so you know ;D

  3. Lovely! It looks simple and pretty… I think I’m going to try making this one. Thanks for sharing the idea.

  4. Oh yay, we’re finally allowed to post about this! I’ll see if I can get my post up from France! 🙂 This is a lovely reminder of a fab evening and I love the fact you’ve linked to a tutorial so your readers can have a go too.

    By the way, congrats on the opening of your Etsy shop! I’m so impressed with your sales figures after just a few days – looks really promising. You have a really pretty selection of lovely handmades 🙂

    1. Thanks for reading! It was really fun wasn’t it?! Have you used your pots yet? I’m still deciding what to put in mine.

      I hope you are enjoying France so far.

      Thank you for your kind words about the shop. I’m so pleased with the launch 🙂

  5. They look so good – knowing me i’d get soil all over the fabric though haha. Certainly going to remember this when I get some more space to have some more plants in the house. I think the aloe plant pot certainly needs jazzing up!

  6. Mmm, glue and buttons and Cath Kidston fabric… Flowerpots are such a familiar shape, it sounds fun to play with that concept by covering them in yummy fabrics. Just been admiring Suki’s too! x

  7. Those are stunning! I’m such a Mod Podge fan. I have a lot of Christmas fabric leftover from my Christmas bags last year, I think some of those would make wonderful Christmas gifts! Thank you for sharing.

  8. This looks like such a fun project!!! I’m going to have to do this with my girls! We will have a blast!

    Thanks so much for sharing this at The DIY Dreamer.. From Dream To Reality!
