Sweet little Hedgehogs

After finding that sweet little hedgehog in my garden the other day I've got the urge to make some.  I have made them before and even though they might look prickly they are really lovely soft, cuddly and so quick to make and I must warn you they are addictive too.
I used eyelash yarn to make these, some of the ladies on loving hands made them in all colours, who says a hedgehog should be brown. 
Kids love them and they are specially good for the shoe box appeal.

 Here are my little blonde Hedgies 




These were made by one of the lovely ladies from loving hands




Now compare them to Hubert....yes he has a name now haha,  I think they look very realistic :)



If I have put you in the mood for making hedgies the pattern I used can be found here and if you get addicted but want a variation here are some more cuties.

    1. Yes Debi he is under a bush somewhere, he could have been in my garden for ages and I hadn't known about it. I'm hoping that he will keep my slug population down. :)

  4. Lucky you to have a hedgehog in your garden. These little fellas are very sweet. I don't know which shoebox appeal you support, but Operation Christmas Child don't allow handmade STUFFED knitted/crocheted toys in their shoeboxes.
    However, I know a lady who is wanting these for another charity - do you know Linda of 'Chalkey's World' (www.chalkygilbert.blogspot.com)? She was appealing recently for a charity that she supports.

    1. Yes Linda is a member of loving hands like me, we send shoe boxes to Blythswood, who accept small cuddly toys, also we are making bags up for woman's refuges and I thought these would be good for that also:)

  5. They are so cute, Linda. I am sure they will be well received, and will make many a child very happy.
