Hedgehog Pincushion

 I know this is not an original idea.
this prickley lil' guy is
 ALL over the web
in felt and fabric!

 This is my version and he is oooh so cute!

I made a nifty little pattern that
I was going to scan and post
BUT I have been to lazy to do.
 So if anyone is interested your just
going to have to leave a comment
 and beg me to post the pattern :)
I should have posted this sooner
I cannot remember how I put it all together
but an advanced sewer could probably figure it out
if I can be of any help just leave a comment.
Feel free to use any of my ideas/patterns as
you wish, My Blog is here as an encouragement
for others sewers.

I went to the thrift store and bought old white bed sheets

and made LOTS!

I made this sign back in the spring.

I thought I would try out freezer paper stencils.

but freezer paper stencils and painted wood are not very good friends.

So I scrapped that idea

and did it he old fashioned way.

kind of like paint by number.
