Hedgehog Hand Stitching Felt Kit - Long Fur
Spend a delightful afternoon working with your hands to create this adorable creature. There are sure to be squeals of delight everyone!
Intermediate, recommended for ages 12 and up. The techniques are simple but the longer pile fur as well as a few of the steps involve smaller pieces that require a bit of extra patience to assemble.
Finished Size: 5.5" x 4.25" (14cm x 11cm)
Each kit envelope contains step-by-step photo illustrated instructions, paper pattern pieces, felt*, faux fur, pair of 6mm safety eyes, 7mm safety nose, embroidery floss, needle and pins.
Stuffing is not included as the finished piece is easy to stuff using scraps of felt or fabric cut into small bits, cotton balls as well as traditional stuffing. It also helps keep the shipping cost much lower as it can travel Canada Post letter mail.
* The felt provided is 100% rayon/viscose which is an organic material made from processed wood pulp and tinted with vegetable-based dyes and has a characteristically soft feel. These pieces are perfect either as whimsical decorative pieces or to be used in gentle play. They are not recommended for small children.
There are actually TWO versions of my little Hedgehog for you choose from - this one can be a challenge for beginners. The shorter, denser fur version is easier to work with and can be found here.
