Hazel Hedgehog

One of my numerous nieces turned a couple of weeks ago.  It’s hard to remember what one year olds might be interested in by way of toys and  I made a guess that she probably has more than enough toys so I thought I’d stitch her something.

I was rather taken by Elizabeth Hartman’s hedgehog pattern a couple of months ago when GnomeAngel organised a sew along, I bought the pattern but knew I would have to wait to sew one up due to other priorities.  As the children have been on holiday this week I asked Bethan to choose some fabrics and I think she did a great job:

Bearing in mind this gift was for a small child I didn’t want to go for a plain background but something where the dirty handprints/face wipes might stand a chance of being hidden!  So out came the Alphabetti by Lu Summers, a great low volume print.

As with other cushion covers I’ve made recently I opted for putting a zip in the middle of the back:

This is a great pattern, it requires a bit of concentration but I can see myself or Bethan making more of these!
