Work In Progress - Hedgehog (Part 2)

I thought I would give you an update on the cute little hedgehog that I've been making. I took a break last night. I thought it would be a good idea to give my hands a rest. Sometimes working through the pain of carpal tunnel is a good thing but there are times when I think a rest is in order. Plus I thought that since I am not making this for anyone in particular there was no need to rush :)

I have made the arms & tried sewing them on but I didn't line them up right so I needed to unpick them. I haven't sewn the head on either. I just plopped it on top of the body for the photos but it kept falling off and rolling onto the floor.

I love how the buckles turned out on the shoes. I placed some really thick cardboard in the bottom of the shoes. It makes it so much easier for the toys to stand up that way. I think I am slowing hoarding more and more cardboard for these Jean Greenhowe toys.
Speaking of Jean she has some more free patterns up on here web site. Click HERE if you would like to check them out.

At least he looks like a happy hedgehog with that smiley mouth :D

I don't have any plans for this afternoon so I might get some more knitting done.
