Little Hedgehog

A student asked me about the little hedgehog on my block for Pam Kellogg's 2015 Crazy Quilt Calendar today. So, thought I'd post this little pattern for everyone.
You can reduce or enlarge to fit the space you want to fill. Here's how I created my version:
Step 1: Size shape to about 1 1/4" wide, cut it out of good quality wool felt
Step 2: Sew to CQ Block with tiny Blanket Stitches in matching color sewing thread
Step 3: Begin at the back and create layered Bullion Stitches in variegated brown/black floss. Stop at dashed pattern line. Look at the photo for direction of these knots.
Step4: Add black seed bead for eyes.
Step 5: Add Satin Stitches in black floss for end of snout.
Hope you enjoy creating him (or her). Hugs!
