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!
