-Polyfil & a stuffing stick
1.) First cut out your shapes using the cactus and llama die. You will need two shapes per side. Reference this blog post to find out more about die cutting!
2.) Grab coordinating or contrasting floss -we used 3 strands and the running stitch to stitch our friends up. If you are new to stitching or stitch dies -read up on your options! Don't forget to leave a space to add in polyfil! You'll find the stuffing tool useful in getting into small spaces!
3.) embellish with pom, sequins and tassels! It's a fiesta!
Make a garland by sewing the cactus and llama with embroidery floss and small size wool poms.
Or make a diorama and put the cactus in a pot!
