He's a bright, blooming (felt) cactus specimen complete with his own pot and soil. He will sit in your window among your other plant-like friends and never ask you for a drop of water. He will never poke you with his prickly prickly (embroidery thread) spines or get knocked over by your furry friend and need to be re-potted. he WILL give you endless hours of cactus blooms and smiles. He might even crawl into bed with you to be your cuddly book-reading companion.
Best of all, though, this little guy is completely portable. Throw him in your suitcase (or place him gently into your carry-on bag) for a hassle-free bit of home wherever you go. Cactus on your hotel room window sill. Cactus on your car's dashboard.
I took a box of (live) plants with me on a rod trip across the country... believe me, this is easier.
He makes a great gift for yourself or someone you care about... especially someone *without* a green thumb.
This cute little cactus is a lovely green green, maybe kelly green, with a bright yellow beaded flower just starting to bloom . He sits in his own reddish brown pot that has a flat, stable bottom (thanks to a recycled cardboard insert inside) and has felt soil that just won't spill. He is made from a mix of recycled bottle acrylic felt and second-hand felt and is stuffed with a mix of fabric scraps (from this and other projects) and new polyester stuffing.
He measures 5.5 inches tall and 3 in. wide... the perfect size to tuck just about anywhere.
I would be happy to make a similar cactus for you in the colors of your choice. Contact me for availability!
Word of warning: my little cacti are well made, but they are FELT, which means they are a bit fragile and don't take kindly to tugging, chewing, or general roughness. Please please please be kind! They are not intended for very young children or pets. They are made of non-toxic materials, but I don't know what will happen if they eat felt or glue or swallow the little beads. Do not give this to your dog (I will cry).
