About a week back a reader (Nina) asked me if I had any craft projects on hedgehogs. The answer was no so I decided to come up with something. Well after a little thought, I decided to make a pom pom hedgehog. It came out just as planned (and trust me, that's rare).
Simple directions below to make a hedgehog pom pom.
Brown and Cream yarn
Brown embroidery floss
Wind brown and cream yarn around two fingers at the same time. Cut yarn.
Now wind just the cream yarn around your fingers slightly overlapping the other yarn.
Slide yarn off your fingers. Secure yarn by tying a strand around the center of the ball. If you've never made a pom pom before, there's detailed directions here. Cut the loops as usual. Trim into an oval shape.

With a small piece of felt, cut and shape into a cone. Sew together. Embroider the nose and eyes on the cone. Glue the cone with fabric glue to the the pom pom. Refer to pictures. Done.
