August Blooms Cacti with Pattern Club


Over the past few months, I've been slowly turning my cottage-core-esque yard into the Palm Springs of Washington. Is it there yet? No, not even close. But I've been putting in a lot of hard work and slowly but surely we're seeing progress.


After tearing out ferns, rose bushes, and some other very rooted shrub, we've added a succulent rock wall, some lovely yuccas, and few windmill palm trees. My favorite new additions are the happy varieties of prickly pear cacti near our house. I found two different options and one of them even bloomed already this summer!


Needless to say, this was the inspiration for this month's Flowering Cactus pattern.



The digital pattern will guide you from start to finish, in creating a blooming cactus design. Each pattern starts with a recommended materials list, then shares how to cut your fabric, place it in the hoop, and offers options for transferring the pattern onto the fabric.


Next the pattern covers how to measure, split, and knot your thread. Then walks you through the design, step by step, to see how each section is created. In each portion of the pattern, I share what stitch is used and how to create that stitch. Finally, you'll learn how to finish your design in the hoop!



Plus, thanks to our recent stitch along, you can also find video tutorials of how to create each stitch on the MCreativeJ blog here.
