You're new to the skills necessary to complete this project, or maybe you've tried them just once or twice before.
Step 1
Project Note: Materials and instructions are for the cactus patch. See below for the materials needed for other featured patches.
 
Click here to download and print the cactus patterns, or draw your own shapes. Cut out.   
Step 2
Trace patterns onto felt, using chalk, and cut out.  
Step 3
Cut a 12" strand of floss and thread floss through the embroidery needle. Tie a knot on the other end.  
Step 4
Add texture and pattern to the cactus shape by creating small stitches through the felt. Start from underneath, pull the needle through, create stitch, and pull back through the felt. 
Step 5
Once you have completed the stitches, tie a final knot on the back of the felt. Create stitches on the cactus and the pot.  
Step 6
Cut strips of fabric tape, and attach the cactus and the pot to a piece of pink felt. Press down.  
Step 7
Cut out the shape, leaving a small trim of pink around the edge.  
Step 8
Use fabric tape to attach the patch to blanket.
