What advice would you give someone starting this project? Stuffing the cactus with the right amount of fiberfill to look three dimensional and yet not distort the fabric was a challenge. I think if I were to do this again, I would create the cactus piece separately - maybe sew the cactus fabric to muslin or some kind of interfacing, then stuffing it and then applique the already stuffed cactus to the background.
