One of my passions, besides crochet and amigurumi is gardening, and in that world I love orchids, succulents and cacti! My orchid collection, while very loved, is small, but my succulent and cacti collection reaches almost 200 specimens!!! So I really had no choice in the matter… this pattern had to be made! =D
These cacti are inspired in the Organ Pipe cactus (Pachycereus marginatus), the Pincushion cactus (Mammillaria), the Star cactus (Astrophytum asterias), the Prickly Pear cactus (Opuntia ficus-indica), the Spider cactus (Gymnocalycium horstii), and the Peanut cactus (Echinopsis chamacereus).
They can be used as pincushions or as decoration! They add a fun detail to any part of your home! In your desk, in your kitchen's window sill, on your favorite shelf or among your real plants! =D
These guys don't need sunshine and don't need to be watered, they'll last forever! Perfect for those friends that keep loosing the plants you gift them! =)
The pattern includes a tutorial on how to attach the cacti to a ceramic or plastic pot, giving the plant an even more realistic look! =)
This PDF pattern has 28 pages with detailed step by step instructions with pictures to demonstrate assembly or any special techniques.
