We are in love with Cactus Plushies in our house! Have seen my patterns for Rosie a Crocheted Plushy Cactus and Primrose a Crocheted Plushy Cactus? I would like to introduce Baby a Crocheted Plushy Cactus. Baby Plushy Cactus was created to be a fun and cuddly cactus that could be taken anywhere. I was able to whip up Baby a Crocheted Plushy Cactus during nap time on a Monday and Tuesday, so pattern works up quickly.
I used Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn in Lemon Lime for the body and Lilac for the pot. I also used Bernat Blanket Yarn in Mink for the dirt but you can use any brown or tan color. I used Bernat Bright’s Blanket Yarn in Pixie Pink for the flower and used Baby Peach for the center of the flower. You can use any color that you would like or have on hand.
