Happy Cactus Pin Cushion


You will need:
  • 40cm x 10cm of fabric
  • stuffing
  • pen and paper
  • scissors
  • needle and thread
  • sewing machine
  • pins
  • terracotta pot 6cm diameter



I made a shape that vaguely resembles a fish at about 16cm in length,


Pin, then cut out 4 of these shapes,


pin, then sew one by one, turn right side out.



Sew his little face on.  I drew it on first, then went over it with the needle and thread.
(in hindsight this would of been easier to do before I sewed all the pieces together)


Stuff with stuffing, then sew ends closed.



Place into pot, tie ribbon on and place in pins...but be gentle!


!Voila

Could you tell me how long/wide the cactus shape is before sewing? I didn't see a template so want to make sure our young girls have pretty much near the correct size pattern to work from.

Thanks!
