How to make a Pom Pom Hedgehog, they’re super cute and easy

First a declaration – I LOVE hedgehogs!! We have hedgehogs living in our front garden and much to Molly’s disappointment only DaddyMoo has seen them. All curled up waiting for winter they are much too busy to be bothered with us right now so last week I just couldn’t pass some luscious brown tweed wool without buying and tinkering with it to make some cute pom pom critters that Molly could call her own.

All you need to make these cute pom pom hedgehogs are two tones of brown wool and some black felt.

First, using whatever pom pom maker you have, a Clover Large Pom Pom Maker like I have or cardboard discs, wrap with dark wool and light brown wool in the ratio shown in the photo.

When made just trim and shape the pom pom with a scissors to create a neat ball with a tapered nose.

Then just cut small circles of black felt for the eyes, and a little triangle for the nose and attach with fabric glue.

MissMolly is now actively making a nest for her new hedgehog family, and is actively canvassing for appropriate ‘cute’ names – any suggestions ? :)
