Modern Cross Stitch Pattern – Cactus

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 4 customer ratings
(4 customer reviews)


Inspired by modern crochet cacti gardens, this Moroccan and Mexican flavoured creative cactus and succulent cross stitch is sure to please! Designed to fit in with any brightly coloured roomscaping, there is lots of detail and patterning contained in the chart, making it ideal for those who have some experience in cross stitch projects. No watering required.



Looking for a cute modern cross stitch pattern? This succulent and cacti plants chart is beautifully arranged with Mexican style decoration and a mosaic planter pot. Put it in a bright hoop frame and decorate your wall while not needing to water them, ever! Featuring barrel, saguaro, noto and cardon plants with creative features for the DIY home stitcher, the finished project fits into a 6” hooped embroidery frame when stitched on 14 count Aida.

This is an intermediate pattern as there are lots of small patches of colour and minor backstitching. Included are instructions on dyeing white or cream Aida fabric to a darker colour using a common household ingredient, so the white stands out more (just like the photo). Please note this is a cross stitch pattern in PDF format only and no fabric, DMC floss or other materials are included in the listing. If you want the frame to look like the one in the photo, please purchase our popular frame wrapping tutorial separately, for complete step-by-step instructions in a full colour photo PDF.

There are three cactus patterns in this set, so you can get the other two in this shop or purchase all three patterns here and save!
