My son's friend asked me to make a hedgehog for him to give to his girlfriend for Christmas.



I think she will be pleased!! =^..^=

I did, out of curiousity, go looking for "hedgehog mohair" since that fabric really does a great job of looking like hedgehog spines, but it is next to impossible to find in the States. Some day I will get some and do a more realistic hedgehog and see how that turns out.

I, uh, think you misunderstood your son's friend. He wanted to give it to ME, not his girlfriend! xD Great job, he's just brimming with personality. I really like how you did his spines, too, it's a great mix between cartoony and realistic.

I should find out today what my son's friend thought of it. My son took it off with him yesterday when he and all his friends meet up.

Thank you very much!!!  Cheesy Cheesy =^..^=

I've been told that the hedgehog has been named Hazel!! (and spent her first day out in the world riding the back of tanks in a 40K match)
