Pillows are a thing with me. I can not get enough of them. When you browse thru them in the stores the prices will give you sticker shock. By making them yourself they can be less expensive and you can customize them just to suit you. I like this one and I want to make it as soon as I get the material.

This cactus pillow cover looks so fresh. I guess it is the color combination that does it. The reverse is just as adorable. The tassels really bring it to another level.

My eldest daughter lives in Arizona, and just let us know they are finally purchasing their dream home. What better housewarming gift than this clever pillow? I love how you can just see the prickly bits, too! Since the cactus is an appliqu, I could cheat and sew it onto a premade pillow, but I love how the designer has incorporated the colors as stripes on the back side. Two pillows in one!

I love this pattern. I used to live in Tucson, AZ and sometimes I do miss seeing the cactus. I had one in back yarn. You could even add little flowers to the front. The instructions are easy to follow and I like the color pattern on the back in addition to the tassels. Thank you for the pattern.

This is what you call boho chic. It's got a little bit more of a cutesy bohemian look to it because of the bright colors used. You COULD tone it down by using the same colors but in a more pastel or muted way. If you have old, ugly toss pillows and want to refresh your decor, making this pillow cover is a sure bet. There's no tapestry crochet involved here as the cactus is worked separate and sewn on to the pillow cover. Fun!
