Felt Cactus Friends
So the other project I made from my new felt pattern book is this little cactus. It is just a smidgen over 5″ tall. And it is made of 43 teensy pieces, plus just a bit of fluff.
And it has a removable pot. (Of course it does, right? Wouldn’t be as cute without it. No really, it wouldn’t.)
I did change the pot just a bit, I added the scallop border at the top, which made it about 1/4″ taller. But I think I like it that way better anyway. If I make this again I’ll probably do some embroidery on my pot before I stitch it together. But I didn’t think of that until it was too late this time around.
So the real question is does this type of cactus have a purple and blue flower? I don’t know. Probably not. In the book she used two yellows for her flower, but I don’t have any yellow. All my bits of felt are leftovers from a Christmas present I made for my mom last year, which never made it to blogland. And there was no yellow. But since I got this book two weeks ago I have actually been looking into wholesale felt and bulk pricing and I really am quite obsessed…. it’s ridiculous. And now Creamie wants a cactus too. One little lipstick just doesn’t compare I suppose.
