|Cacti Pot Holders|
The ever popular and always a adorable Cacti! This succulent paper pieced pattern has been on my to-do list for quite a while. I knew one day I would find the time to give it a try.
The pattern is by Amanda at Material Girl Quilts. The pattern has four different cactus plants each in their own little pots, and all neatly set upon a shelf. I was so happy to rediscover this tutorial! It worked well for these pot holders, but it also gave me an idea for a secret Santa gift!
I reduced this Cactus to 75% so it would fit a pot holder.
The Agave had a little more modifications. It was reduced to 65% and I made the pot smaller.
The Succulent Shelf pattern is interchangeable, meaning you can swap pots or cacti! Very smart!
I'm thinking if you did one of each cactus in the same color scheme...that would make for an even better set! Next time, right?!
I have also been working on tagging ideas for the show. It has been fun, but also time consuming.
I was determined that the pot holder sets needed to be wrangled and kept together! This is my solution. A simply designed tag and ribbon. I really like how it turned out. The sets will stay together and have enough room for pricing.
Little hang tags were put together for the smaller items. There won't be any confusion on who made these!
Thankfully I'm finished with everything for this show! Tomorrow they will be off to their final resting place, tucked somewhere among the other talented artists.
It does seem like this time of the year is always full of distractions. How do you handle the stress and do you get distracted?
