I am currently fascinated with quick and easy knits. This week I will be featuring a collection of keychains. Thankfully this Saguaro cactus does not have any thorns.
I found a free pattern for this cactus on The Crafty Cattery blog (here). To add a little stability to the project, I added pipe cleaners. The pipe cleaners stretch from the tip of an arm, though a stitch in the cactus body and then to either the top or bottom of the cactus body. This also meant I did not need the recommended stuffing.
