Feeling Prickly Cactus Coasters

 Feeling Prickly  
🌡Cactus Coasters🌡

Living in Texas you see a lot of cactus and of course the theme is pretty popular. With the cactus in bloom it just felt right making these cute cactus coasters that keep catching my eye.
They make great gifts for the cactus lovers in your life.
I am making several now for teacher appreciation gifts and a house warming gift for a friend. 


🌡Change up the colors of the flowers to suit your taste. πŸŒ΅


You can order the cactus coasters in Doily Designs Etsy shop, or if you crochet yourself, see the link below for the pattern. 


These adorable coasters were created by Ashleigh Kiser of Sewrella. 
You can find her pattern on Ravelry Or you can help support Sewrella's art by purchasing this well written pattern in  Sewrella's  Etsy shop.


Another version of the pattern is available through Leisure Arts.



...have fun with these cute coasters!

Meet Llommy, sweet little llama mommy plushie 😍.


🌺❤️πŸŒΏπŸ¦™πŸ¦™πŸ¦™ πŸŒΊ❤️🌿

Llommy was inspired by these
 crochet Llama appliquΓ©s designed by Jen of Nella's Cottage. You can purchase the pattern here at Nella's Cottage on Etsy. They are so adorable!
(Pictured below.) 


When I finished my first one, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to put it on. A bag for my tablet, kept coming to mind, or perhaps a pillow. Although any of those would be great, the llama was so cute, I couldn’t bare sewing it to something, so, it ended up a plushie.  

And Llommy was born.

To make the llama plushie, you will first need llama appliquΓ© pattern by
Nella's CottageI made two of the body and neck. Just a circle for the head without the shells. Then sewed them together on the row before the shells around the body first and filled with fiberfill as I went up the neck to the head and back down to the body. For the legs, my daughter and I decided the "floppy" legs were good. So they are one layer for the brown and 2 layers for the black. Two layers for the black for added weight and cuteness. For the blanket, I made an oval instead of a half circle, to drape over Llommy's back. The blanket is only tacked down because I want to be able to change colors with the mood.  Same with the bridle, which is tied in a bow in the back. A really fun project. More notes at the bottom....

This little llama sure makes me smile! :)


Now back to making one for my tablet case. ;)
Happy crocheting!

Notes on Llommy;
Llommy has a tail on mine, which you can kind of see in the first picture, but after adding it, I can see why Jen of Nella's Cottage did not add a tail to her pattern. The tail is not necessary, it is adorable without it!
