Let’s all stick together!

This felt bunny ear cactus is a great craft for those who feel they are an advanced beginner or have intermediate embroidery skills. For this type of project, we recommend that you use a wool or wool blend felt rather than synthetic material. We find the needle slides freely while using the wool blend and the material is compact enough to hold all of the tiny stitches. If you wanted to learn how to master the french knot, this is the project for you. You can also review and grow your skills by referring to this post where we share 10 basic embroidery stitches with full photo tutorials.

  2. Cut out felt pieces according to the pattern using scissors or a cutting machine.
  3. Use a disappearing ink fabric pen to mark one of the cactus pieces with dots (see PDF template).
