    All seams 1/4" unless otherwise indicated. RS = Right Side; WS = Wrong Side.
  1. Center one Flex-Foam 1-Sided Fusible rectangle on the WS of one exterior fabric rectangle and fuse. Repeat for remaining exterior fabric rectangle.
  2. Remove the paper backing from one Vinyl-Fuse rectangle and carefully finger press the sticky side to the RS of the interior fabric rectangle. Fuse. Repeat for remaining interior fabric rectangle.
  3. Place the Shape-Flex rectangle against the WS of the 2"x2-1/2" fabric rectangle and fuse.
  4. Place exterior rectangles RS together and pin. Place interior rectangles RS together and pin. Trace and cut a 1" notch in the lower left and right hand corners of both the exterior and interior units.
  5. Sew along the sides and bottom of the units, locking stitches at each end, leaving one long end open.
  6. Open the notched corners on each unit, pinch in to align raw edges and match seams. Pin and sew.
  7. Turn exterior RS out, push out corners and straighten. Fold top edge in by 1/4" and press.
  8. Fold top edge of interior down to the outside by 1/4" and finger press.
  9. Place interior inside exterior and match top folded edges. Set aside.
  10. Fold the long sides of the 2"x2-1/2" rectangle in by 1/4" and press to create a 1-1/2"x2-1/2" rectangle. Topstitch along the folded edges.
  11. Fold in half to create a 1-1/4"x1-1/2" piece. Press fold.
  12. Insert raw edges in between top long side of the exterior and interior pieces so that only 3/4" is exposed. Pin.
  13. Topstitch around entire top. Straighten and press. (Alternate method: Handstitch to finish or use EZ-Steam II Tape to secure pieces.)
  14. Repeat full process to create remaining planters.
  15. Insert stick or dowel through the hanging sleeves and arrange as desired.
