This month the Island Batik Ambassadors were challenged to make a Funky Friends Factory creature! I chose Hannah Hedgehog because my son has a love of hedgehogs and a birthday soon.
Hannah has been up to some shenanigans around the house. First she got out because she wanted to smell the spring crocuses.
Then she decided to try to become friends with the peeps. Or was she trying to eat them???
Finally she decided to sit on my quilt because she was curious about it. Hannah has had some adventures!
I chose the fabric for her upper body because I thought it looked spiky like hedgehogs. Then I couldn't resist the orange ears and legs. I didn't have stuffed animal eyes so I found a teal button and a black bead to use instead. She was sewn with Schmetz Needles and Aurifil thread and they worked quite well with no rips as I was stuffing her.
My son loves Hannah and says she was his favorite birthday present!
I hope you get to quilt today!
