One day my daughter and I were joking around. She kept trying to give me a hug and I kept pushing her away. Ever since then she has been calling me a prickly cactus. That is what inspired me to crochet a cactus. Once I had made the cactus and it's little pot, I couldn't figure out how to make the needles. It occurred to me to use my own pins and needles and use the cactus as a pin cushion. Also, my thumb isn't always a green one and this is a plant I'm guaranteed not to kill.
This crochet cactus pincushion is 5 inches tall. The cactus itself is 3 inches tall and 7 inches around and the terracotta colored pot is 3 inches wide, 1 1/2 inches tall and 8 inches around. This happy little cactus pin cushion will sit nicely on your desk is a great size to hold all of your pins and needles.
Sorry, pins and needles are not included.
All items in my shop are crocheted with love in a smoke-free, but pet friendly home.
Unless otherwise noted, items are machine washable on cool or warm setting. Tumble dry- low heat. Dry to 50-70% complete than lay flat to finish drying.
If you are interested in a different color or larger quantities, send me a convo and we can work together!
I am a crocheter, not a photographer. While I do my best to accurately represent the colors of an item in my photos, your item may appear a slightly different color compared to the pictures.
Cuter than I imagined 😍 I love it!
