Amigurumi Cactus (with pizazz!)

photo

As much as I loved the cactus I made before…it didn’t seem complete.  It needed a little pizazz so I added a little pop of colour!  (See my previous post here.)  

For the flower, I used a smaller 2.5mm hook and Lion Brand “bon bon” yarn.  The steps to make the flower were included in the cactus pattern I purchased on Etsy from JaydaInStitches.

I purchased the tiny flower pot at Michaels and bought the green and yellow paint at Dollarama.

My mom is going to love it!

…and I made two more for 2 more birthdays coming up!

Amigurumi Cactus

photo

I LOVE this cactus for a few reasons.  The pattern was so easy to follow, it took no time at all to finish, and it’s so cute!

I purchased the pattern on Etsy from “Jayda In Stitches”.  The pattern was super easy to follow!  Once I purchased the pattern it was ready to download right away and Jayda kindly messaged me to let me know she was available to answer any questions.  (Thanks Jayda!)   

I used a 3.5mm hook, 8mm safety eyes, some polybeads/stuffing, and a some red embroidery floss for the mouth.  I used regular “Vanna’s Choice” yarn for the cactus but chose to use a “kitchen cotton” yarn for the base of the cactus (the pot.)  I like the texture and colour of the kitchen cotton yarn.  It worked well for the pot because it’s a little sturdier and has more of a matte finish like a real terracotta pot!

Happy Crochet’ing!  xo
