At the end of the rainbow
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!
