Hedgehog

I love hedgehogs!! Because I can't have one because of our two dogs, I made one....


To make yours you'll need:

1 small piece of felt or fleece
small amount of yarn in two tones (I used a multicolored cotton)
2 beads for eyes
1 big bead or button for nose
matching embroidery floss for felt
fiberfill
Hot glue gun

Cut pattern (2 times) (save and print, it will be original size)












Sew around with floss.


I left a small opening for nose and inserted a black shank button and glued but you can sew a big bead if you prefer.


Fill tightly with fiberfill




























Make a pompom
measuring 5 1/2" (14cm) around


Flatten a side of the pompom and fix the face to the pompom with hot glue. Sew the eyes.

Voilà!!


On my to do list
1. Throw my camera out the window
2. Do some research on how to download, scan, work with blogger. My self esteem is being very much affected when I look at other blogs being so well presented, clear pictures, clear tutorials and all. I guess I have a lot to learn!
Si une copie francophone est capable de m'aider à trouver un site expliquant comment se servir de Blogger, flickr et tout le tralala en français, svp faites-moi signe. Je suis vraiment désespérée quand je vois l'allure de mon blog. Je veux bien partager mais le faire de façon originale et de look plus expert serait vraiment extra!
A plus, Marguerite
