DIY Cactus Pin Cushion
I’ve been renovating my new Studio lately and found the cutest little llama for my shelf. And since I love to sew, I figured a felt Cactus pin cushion would be the perfect little addition!
These make cute little fiesta party favors for Cinco de Mayo, too!
I’m super excited to share how you can easily make one of your own, so let’s get started!
What you will need:
- Cricut Maker
- Cactus Design
- Green and Pink Felt
- Sewing Machine or Thread and Needle
- Hot Glue Gun
- Mini Clay Pot
- Craft Foam
- Wooden Skewer
- Sewing Pins
Start by loading the design in Cricut Design Space. Load the Cricut Maker with your felt, making sure you use the Fabric Grip cutting map and the Rotary Blade. Send the file to the machine and watch it cut the felt perfectly!
Once the felt is cut, sew the two pieces together using a blanket stitch. (If you do this part by hand, it most likely will take longer than 15 minutes.)
Next, stuff the cactus with polyfil. Use a skewer to stuff the narrow sections.
Cut a small strip of pink felt and roll it into a flower. Attach it to the cactus with hot glue. Next, fill a mini clay pot with craft foam. Cover the foam with felt and hot glue it to the foam. Next, apply hot glue to the bottom of the cactus and place it in the pot. Add your sewing pins and you’re all set!
Isn’t it adorable? I can’t wait for you to try this fun little project, it’s SEW easy! 😉
