Why this kit? A friend of ours says it's like buying brownie mix -- just add eggs and oil! That sort of describes what we were after here: to provide you with all the things for making a cute little project. Take your bag of stuff anywhere and you're ready to go. No shopping or hunting for things required.
And if you need some help getting started, you can watch a video with Vickie Howell showing you how it comes together. And this amigurumi cactus comes together quickly!
If you've got some basic crochet skills under your belt, the cactus can be completed in just a couple of hours. No crochet skills? No problem. With a little practice, you should be able to put this together (not a great project for the little's to start with, but teens proficient with a hook should be able to handle it).
Your result? A darling little life size 8-inch cactus. Place it on a shelf, windowsill or mantle. Decorate a bedroom or a bookshelf. Mix this little cactus in with your existing real life collection of succulents and cacti.

Testimonials from reviewers (see ourpress pagefor more):
"I was really impressed with the quality of the products in this kit. I’ve purchased a lot of crochet kits and the yarn is usually kind of ‘meh’. The yarn in this crochet cactus kit is very nice."
- Cheryl, from Crochet 365 Knit Too
"The instructions are written in an abbreviated way, but there are pictures and a video tutorial hosted by Vickie Howell! Just basic crochet skills are used, and the cactus can be finished in an evening."
