Recall from my last posting, the kids met a tiny little hedgehog? I have been working on this big little hedgehog for T Rex the past several weeks. I saw an image online and tried to duplicate the pattern as well as make a few changes, too. It was quite labor intensive as the "quills" are each chains of 5.
The finished project turned out wonderful. I was actually going for actual size but as it turns out, this toy hedgehog is about 4 times as big as an actual hedgehog. I wish I had met the real one before starting this one. I particularly like the hands and feet - they will kind of tough and tedious but the end product is wonderful.
As I do with most of my other projects for T, I leave it for him to find upon waking. As you can see from the photo, he was delighted with his new pet hedgehog Sebastian. They've already been on a couple adventures together.
