Cactus Cutie

So I am working on a present for three girls for Christmas. Thought I would crochet something and had this pattern for a cactus garden by Elf Loves Dwarf Crochet that has been languishing in my pattern collection. I thought that maybe they might like one for in their dorm rooms, kind of a plant you can't kill thing. Well I got most of the way through the first one and then thought of something better, but I still thought I should finish the one I started. 

The pattern whipped up really really fast. Total project time for this guy was a little over two hours I think. I added the black safety eyes because I wanted it to be a dumb cute cactus.

A little desert warmth in the winter.

The eyes are slightly off... think it adds to the derp factor.

He's about 10 inches tall. I think next time I would add those weighting beads to the bottom of the pot so he stands up better. Now I just have to figure out who to give it to.
