2. With white thread, stitch the pot to the cactus, adding a running stitch line for the rim of the pot. Stitch the flower to the top of the cactus, then create 4 rows of running stitch down the length of the cactus to make the spines.

3. Join up the lines in the running stitch, and make a little cross where the stitches meet.

4. Once all the cactus detail has been stitched, pin to a piece of green felt, and carefully trim around it to create the backing.
