Cactus Pincushions

This cute display is at Morris and Sons in Melbourne, where a group of my quilting friends from Southern Cross Quilters (SCQuilters) get together once a month.

Just last week I found a sewn version of a cactus pincushion on a German blog: Karl der nadelkaktus (the link to the pattern is the word "hier" in the last paragraph) and thought I would have to try making one. These crochet ones are very cute, though. Perhaps I could make a sewn one with a crocheted flower?


  1. Very cute! I have seen knitted cacti before, but the flowers on these top them off so nicely! I have a couple of different patterns for knitted and sewn cacti (from various craft magazines) if you want a copy.

    1. Thanks for the offer, Dianne, but I'm right for patterns.
