I finished the hedgehog:
He’s beyootiful. However, I feel the need to emphasize that the Boo chose these colors. The boy has a flair that I lack, it seems! My favorite parts are his eyes. Needle felted with a smidge of white. Sometimes I feel really clever 😉
Fortunately the boy loves his “porcupine”. Yes, he calls it a porcupine. I suppose I can see his point. I call him Elvis, for what I hope are obvious reasons.
As you can see above he’s got a small balding problem, plus I noticed in these pictures that his nose is a little crooked. Luckily my almost-3-year-old could care less! Next time I’ll use a thicker eyelash yarn. And there will be a next time.. I’m quite taken with the little guy! But first up, the squirrel!
Bonus: He makes an excellent ball to throw. Somewhat rugby/football shaped and nice and squishy to catch!
Thoughts on Lamb’s Pride — I really don’t like this for felting, which is unfortunate since I have a lot of it. It does felt nicely, it’s just really hairy. I like a flatter felted surface. Oh well — live and learn! It certainly works well for animals 🙂
