So a little more practice, and here is my yet unnamed hedgehog. He just loves to eat mini toadstools. He is about 4 inches high in a sitting position.
The biggest challenge here was to incorporate the mohair hedgehog fur with the needle felted merino wool.
As I had some mohair 2 ply yarn in my stash, I tunisian crocheted a sack (the colour was ideal for this) to put some needle felted toadstools for him.
