Southwest Stitches: Zig Zag Cactus and Air Plant Pattern is the New September Pattern Club Design

Over the last year and some months, I've worked to make myself a home office. It started out with a lap desk, which then turned into a room I could call my own and an adjustable sit/stand desk. Along the way, I added a mural, shelves, and of course plants.

When we first started working from home, I disliked it so much. I'll be the first to tell you, I don't care for change. Looking back, I don't know why I was so hesitant to change. I've actually really enjoyed making my home my office. I even added plants to my desk because they make me smile every time I go to work. As you know, the desert and plants are my happy place, so I combined them to create this month's southwest inspired Zig Zag Cactus and Air Plant pattern. Whether you're working from home or need a whimsical and vibrant design on your office desk, this pattern would be a great stitch to create yourself.

The digital pattern will guide you from start to finish, in creating a beautiful mountain view 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 your design.

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.
