Cacti pin cushions



Cacti pin cushions, originally uploaded by samjoepics.
Aren't these cute! The pattern was from an English magazine called Mollie Makes. You simply cut out felt pieces using the template guidelines in the magazine, blanket stitch around the edges, stuff with soft toy filling and then 'plant' in a cute little pot. I used glass planter stones to add a little weight to the pot. The cactic flowers are simply attached with pretty coloured pins. That's it! But oooh they are cute. As you can see from the picture, Mummy's little helper thinks they are pretty cute too. Hmm, note to self - hide on a very high shelf!
