Pattern Description:

Now you can make your very own Plants vs. Zombies Cattail sitting on a Lily Pad, ready to protect your home against a zombie invasion! :D

I decided to make the Cattail from the game Plants vs. Zombies because it was a game my father became hooked to when he first got his IPad. I would watch him play and came to realize that all of these wonderful characters that were created for this game, would transfer well into the art of crocheted amigurumi. So, I began crafting and writing up the pattern, and the rest is history. I hope you all enjoy the PVZ Cattail as much as I do and that you make one to brighten up your home or office!

Stay tuned as some day soon I will have some of the other PVZ character patterns up for sale as well, including the Peashooter, and Snow Peashooter!!!

This pattern features 24 pages of detailed instructions, including how to assemble step-by-step, and has 37 in progress color photos to help you along the way!!!

If any questions come up while you are working on your Cattail, please don't hesitate to contact me. I am here to help, and will get back to you in a timely manner, so not to worry :D
