Lil Otto

When we first moved to AZ, we transplanted a large 25' saguaro cactus to our backyard. We named him Otto (anything that big and costing that much to transplant deserved a name!) Since then, I've always thought I wanted to make my own Otto. Presto! Lil Otto is born and made of green felt with ribs sewn prior to assembly. After assembling, each spine was painstakingly pierced into the ribs. The beaded blossoms show the normal June blooming of a saguaro.

Lil Otto found a home
No more will he have to roam
Now he's no longer sickly
Though his hide is somewhat prickly
He's very cute and quite debonair
He even has flowers in his hair
I hope he stays happy & sweet
and enjoys the new digs in Cave Creek
