Looking to bring the outdoors inside? This prickly pear cactus cross stitch pattern is sure to delight, with a shapely silhouette of the plant in a cute pot. Requiring only one DMC colour, this project is all about refining beautiful stitches and following the pattern. Experiment with any colour combination of DMC floss or Aida fabric that you like!



This easy prickly pear cross stitch pattern is a great introduction to working on navy Aida. With only one colour to worry about, the focus is on stitching the chart. The modern cross stitch nature design shows a flowering desert cacti succulent in a heart stamped plant pot and is a versatile blackwork pattern to suit any décor. The finished project fits perfectly into a 6” embroidery hoop frame when made on 14 count Aida. You can also use any fabric/thread colour combination to suit – a series of these could be done in complimentary colours to brighten any wall!

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.
