…my true love gave to me: a hedgehog to hang on the tree!
I’ve probably mentioned on here before that my mother collects all things hedgehog. As such, I try to accommodate her on special occasions: there have been hedgehog birthday cards, Mother’s Day cards, cakes, t-shirts…
Fast-forward to the Christmas crafting season, when I realized the project I had originally picked out was simply not going to be finished by December 25. (That’s okay, folks, her birthday is coming up shortly, so I like to think of it as having a head start on that.) While entering random keywords on Etsy at work one day, I stumbled across trellis & thyme, who, wonder of wonders, boasted a PDF hedgehog ornament pattern in their shop.
It’s difficult to tell in the photo, but he has little prickles embroidered all around his front side. The pattern instructions indicated these should be placed randomly, but…I can’t handle random. So instead, they run in two staggered-but-kinda-concentric circles around his underside.
As always, thanks for looking – and may your holiday crafting be running on-schedule. 🙂
