For some reason lately I have had a "thing" for pincushions. Not any particular style just ones that I think are fun or cute.
I think that hedgehogs are so cute to look at although I have never had any personal experience with one. I found the picture for this one on Pintrest and hunted up the pattern. Years before I had made a special mohair teddy bead for my eldest daughter and remembered the wonderful fabric. I thought that they made mohair tipped in a second color that would be perfect for the hedgehog so I went hunting on the internet for that specific fabric and finally found it. It was the perfect color but not spikey enough to look like the spines of the hedgehog. So I cut off a piece of the fabric and got it wet and played with the fur so that it stood up like I wanted. The face and ears are linen with black beads for the eyes.
She is perfect - just like I had imagined....
The scissors are hand made antiques from the mid 1800's. They are so delightful to look at.
