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!

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.

Hi Bunny, it is 16 cm long and 8 cm wide. I'm so glad you want to make this and I would love to see the finished product!
