I saw something similar to this in a small magazine I get and knew I had to try it out. They didn't have any sort of instructions and the picture was tiny so I set to figure it out myself. I ended up sewing in a gusset and finding and altering a small plastic planter to fit. It is a birthday gift to a friend!

The flowers in it in case anyone is interested are left to right: browillia, silver falls diacondria, and a heliotrope. (I'm sure those aren't spelled exact! Cheesy) I work in our family owned greenhouse so I have access to lots of fun plants.
Thanks for looking! Wink

This is so fun - and a wicked way to upcycle those underwire bras when they start pokin' through!

I love it, the leopard print makes it especially sexy and goes great with the purple flowers and greenery.

Thanks everyone!
And a big thanks to Racky for the feature! Grin
The gift is actually for a guy! He hasn't gotten it yet. We share the same birthday so he won't get it for a few weeks yet.
