Hedgehog Pincushion FREE Sewing Tutorial

It's a perfect addition to a youngsters first sewing kit.  The faux fur does a great job of emulating a hedgehog's spines, but you don't have to use fur.  Maybe a fun printed cotton or some towelling.  Of course, she won't look as prickly, but you'll just have to stick more pins in her!

What you'll need:

  • 20cm square (or equivalent measure) of fabric (we'll call this ‘fabric 1') for head, belly and ears. 
  • 20cm square of fabric (fabric 2) for the back.  As mentioned faux fur is great, but towelling or cotton is fine, too.
  • Sewing needle and strong thread.  The smaller ear pieces and some of the curves are best tackled with hand sewing.
  • Polyfill stuffing.
  • 2 black seed beads for eyes.
  • 50cm black embroidery thread or perle cotton for embroidering nose.  Or you could use a bead or tiny pompom instead.
  • Embroidery needle for embroidering nose.
  • Optional ribbon for bow.
