CACTUS NEEDLE FELTING PATTERN – INSTANTLY DOWNLOAD AND PRINT

£3.50

 

CACTUS FELTING NEEDLE HOLDER – Create this needle felted cactus in a terracotta pot; the perfect place to store your felting needles or to use as a pin cushion.

A fabulous , prickly project which involves several needle felting techniques including a soft sculpture base, using a wooden skewer to create perfect shapes, and letting your creativity run wild with the vibrant  flowers the cacti produce. Adding the spikes is a soothing and therapeutic process in which they can be added randomly or, if you love a bit of symmetry, placed in straight lines down each cactus arm.

As always, I spend a lot of time during the design process, creating projects I know you will love whilst carefully choosing the wool and fibres to suit the finished piece.

See description below for my guide on what wool to use.
