The other day when my 6 year old wanted to work on her cross stitch, I decided to get out a new project. A Summer Ball is lots of fun to work on, but difficult when you have to stop every couple of minutes. I looked through my “work in progress” tote and found a project I had completely forgotten about. I had not started it yet, but had the materials ready to go. It is a cute little hedgehog which is stitched in two parts and then put together to make a pincushion. It was a free cover kit from a recent British magazine, but as I subscribe to the digital edition, I don’t get the kit. Fortunately, the chart was inside the magazine and I just had to find my own supplies. The design is stitching up very quickly, and I already have most of the first half of the little critter done. The other side is basically the same thing, only in reverse. I can’t wait to get this one done!
I haven’t taken a photo yet, but here is what he will look like. I even managed to find the same pins, although they are a different color.
What an adorable little guy!!! I have to try this project very soon – thanks for sharing….
I would love to make this hedgehog pincushion. Can you tell me what magazine and issue? He is adorable!
Becky, it is from the British magazine CrossStitcher, and it was in the May 2015 issue. You can purchase a back issue from various apps, or I found this page online: https://pocketmags.com/us/crossstitcher-magazine/may-2015
Click on “look inside” underneath the phone image of the cover, and there are a few sample pages of the issue. The hedgehog is included!
Now that it is spring break, I think I will try to get this little guy put together. I’ve had him stitched for ages. Thanks for the reminder 🙂
