A word from Shannin, the 'The Little Cactus' costume creator:

My three year old son Reznor decided all on his own he wanted to be a cactus for Halloween. I knew it would be a challenge to make so I tried to persuade him to be an animal like a fox or a doggy. He was firm in his decision and I secretly loved his out of the box thinking! I used outdoor patio fabric for the outside of the cactus to give it a sturdy weight. It is lined with felt and stuffed with batting. The bottom trim of the dirt and lizard are made of felt. I used jute for the prickles.

I made up the pattern as I went and didn't save it. Sorry. Glad you love it. It was a labor of love!

I love your prickles. Did you run tbe jute through felt? How did you attach them?

I glued them onto the felt. May have used hot glue. Definitely didn't run them through.
