Hi, I’m Vicky. My grandson wanted to be a cactus in a pot for Halloween. I have no idea how he came up with that idea, but there obviously was no pattern. I created one and made him this to wear on Halloween. He loved being unique. I used a foam circle to create the top of the “terra cotta” pot and cut the center out to use on top of his head. I put a t-shirt inside and sewed the cactus to it in places to keep the in+out portions in place. The t-shirt also kept the shoulders up. I used short fur for the “dirt”. The cactus was green flannel reinforced with iron-on stiffener. The “spines” were made with a yarn I found with sparkly fluff on just one side.
