Tildy, the Hedgehog



Here's my latest little one. I've been trying to find the perfect way to do hedgehog spines and tried something a bit different. For this little one I used some faux fur for her back. I like the fact that the fur is blonde tipped and I think it comes rather close to the coloring of some hedgies. But it's still not exactly what I want. It's not quite compact enough and isn't really spiney.  In the past I've wet felted spines to insert in. However they looked too large and were too few.  The search continues.  But I'm still pretty happy with little Tildy. I hope you are too :-)
