I just love small projects! There’s a certain ‘cuteness’ and charm to them and I love the fact that they don’t use a lot of fabric and are quickly finished. They’re also great if you want to whip up a quick gift for someone, like this little ‘Pot of Love’ I made for my Mum recently.
The idea is that you fill it with goodies, such as sweets, chocolates, sewing notions or any other small gift (I put Mum’s favourite Lindt chocolates in this one!), attach a little poem or message and present it to someone you love.The great thing is that, once all the choccies have been devoured, you are left with a pretty little clay pot for a flower or plant.
This is the wording for the little poem that I attached, which you can use, or you can write something of your own
This tiny pot is filled with love
Do not doubt its worth
For any love that we can give
Is the most precious gift on Earth
The fabric used for the pot cover just happens to co-ordinate with the little pillow I made earlier – I think they have a charming rustic look about them, don’t you?
I had a lot of fun making it and I hope you do too. You can download the free PDF pattern for the Pot of Love here. Happy stitching everyone!
