This super cute hedgehog pin cushion is really simple to make and is a great sewing project for an autumn evening!
MAKE TIME: 1 hour
To make your pin cushion you will need:
- Sample piece of m&h Hedgehog Fabric (£2 from our website with free P&P here).
- Coordinating sewing thread
- Toy stuffing
- Sewing machine
- Sewing needle
Cut out two hedgehogs leaving as much pink background as possible.
Pin together the the right side of the hedgehogs together making sure that they match (I pinned their noses together to start with and worked around the body).
For ease draw the outline of the hedgehog with a pencil so you have a line to follow when sewing the two pieces together.
Sew together the two pieces with a simple straight stitch, following the pencil line stitch 5mm away from it. Leave a 1.5cm gap at the base to be able to turn the hedgehog inside out and stuff.
(If you are hand sewing use a simple running stitch).
Trim off any excess fabric.
Turn the hedgehog inside out and fill with toy stuffing. I use a chopstick to poke the toy stuffing in.
Close the opening using a blind stitch.
Ta dah you've got one super cute hedgehog cushion (which can double up as a little toy as well)!
