Those are really cute.  But out of curiosity and a little bit of grossed-outness... Do you know how they got the quills?

I don't really know how they got them, but they're all clean and we just cut the tips off before sliding the needle through.. it's really not gross, it's a fun craft. And they're super lightweight.

I think porcupines shed their quills, so it's probably perfectly safe for the animals.  I googled "porcupine quills" out of curiosity, and there are plenty of site out there that sell the quills if anyone wants to make something with them.  Just don't buy from a site that gets them from trappers.  Apparently they are good for weaving projects as well.

If I was any more open, I'd be inside out.
