Our guild is doing a pin cushion swap and I decided, following my success with Patrick the owl, that I would stick with an animal theme and searched online for a Hedgehog template. I found this one at Makerland. The template makes a tiny hedgehog so I printed it on A3 paper rather than A4 to make it about 40% bigger.
I should have known when I was cutting the fabric and had the two sides of the body pieced that something was wrong!
The hedgehogs on the body fabric are going the wrong way!
And nul points for pattern matching at the top either!
Still at least he is functional!
The designer of the pattern mentions in the first paragraph that she would consider moving to New Zealand as Hedgehogs are so plentiful there. Given that and the fact that my little guy is upside down I'm calling him Ned from New Zealand!
I'm not sure how I am going to do a better job of pattern matching on a curved seam but at least on attempt #2 I can turn the fabric the right way up! For now though I think I'll keep this little guy!
