  1. Cut a 10"x18" rectangle from each fabric.
  2. For each rectangle, sew short ends (right sides) together, forming a tube with 1/4" seam allowance. Leave a 2" opening in the middle of the lining seam. Press seam open.
  3. For both lining and exterior, press tube flat with seam in the middle and sew one end together with a 1/4" seam allowance to form bottom.
  4. Form gussets by matching bottom seam to fold on one side and flatten forming a point. Draw a mark at the fold on each side, 2" from the point end, and draw a line between the marks forming a triangle. Sew along the mark and trim off the excess triangle. Repeat on other side.
  5. With right sides together, drop lining into fabric flowerpot, pin the top edge and sew all around.
  6. Turn inside out through lining side seam, push lining into flowerpot and press as needed. Turn top of flowerpot down to form cuff.
