A late Mother's Day present

Got an email from mom, her Mother's Day present (technically I did send it before Mother's Day) arrived. She reads the blog Hi mom so I couldn't show it to you until now. I sent a candy bar (because they have some interesting ones over here) and this little guy:
Felted hedgehog

It was kind of sad putting him in the package though, he looked a little uncomfortable.

I'm not sure if you can tell in these photos, but the snout part is slightly darker, and was dyed with tea (I'll write up a tutorial soon).

I had initially made a shawl for her, but she had specific size requirements, and I accidentally left it in the dryer for too long, so it's actually now a small scarf that I'm not sure what I'm going to do with.

I'm considering opening an etsy shop, our apartment is kind of too small for all the stuff I want to make ...


  1. I'm considering opening up an Etsy shop too. I knit every day and have tons of things I could sell, but I just worry no one will buy anything :) Let us know if you do and how it works out!

  2. What a cute little hedgehog!

  3. I think that scarf is beautiful - it could be a cowl. Or you could fold it in half to be a purse.

    Good luck if you open an etsy shop!! There's so much support online with groups and on the etsy website - what have you got to lose?

    And... I'm loving that glove in your last post - someone asked me this week if there's something I'd find too difficult to knit and I said "gloves!" I'm so impressed with those fingers and how nice it looks.

  4. Thanks Chelsea :)
    And thanks for your support Tamdoll and Merf!
