How to make your own diy grow bags

Making your own DIY grow bags is a simple and inexpensive project that can be done in a few easy steps:

Materials needed:

  • Landscape fabric or burlap
  • Scissors or utility knife
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread


  1. Cut the landscape fabric or burlap into rectangles or squares, depending on the size of the grow bags you want to make. Make sure to leave enough fabric to fold over and sew the edges.
  2. Fold over the edges of the fabric about 1 inch and sew along the edge with a sewing machine or needle and thread. This will prevent the edges from fraying and give the grow bag more structure.
  3. Sew the sides of the grow bag together, leaving the top open. You can use a straight stitch or a zigzag stitch for extra durability.
  4. Turn the grow bag inside out so that the seams are on the inside.
  5. Fill the grow bag with soil and plant your desired plants.
