Handmade hedgehogs for someone you love (incl. you)

hh family crochetedIf you’d like to celebrate a human hedgehog, hint to someone that they are one or simply get a hedgehog gift, you can buy these babies in person in Bristol or by contacting me from the contact page.

About the size of a tangerine, these are soft fidgeting toys that you can attach to your keyring, bag or bracelet.

They are not only cute but useful, as fidget toys have been shown to help the mind relax (when you hold or squeeze something in your palm), both in children and adults.

The baby hedgehogs are £5 each and you can also commission a different colour or a bigger Mum/Dad (£15 and about a size of … a real hedgehog, I guess).

Each baby hog comes with a black string loop, a mini lobster clasp and a small info card, like so —-–>

If you want your purchase posted, obviously there’ll be a corresponding postal fee to add to the total price.

If you live in Bristol, you can collect in person, naturally free of charge.

In the future, I hope to also make other hedgehog accessories. Watch this space!

These is the display unit holding my hedgehogs in Kingfisher Cafe, on the right hand side wall as you walk in:

Other colours I can make right away (i.e. have the yarn in stock) are:

– candy pink

– gray and white

– chocolate brown

– dark blue

– dark,  “hairy hippy” grey 😉

 

PS. What do you think of the wicker basket display unit I’ve made for Kingfisher?
My great-grandfather wove wicker items and furniture and so I have a soft spot for that material. Grandpa’s whole house smelt of willow twigs and they stood in bunches everywhere. This basket, alas, was just a lucky find in a nearby charity shop.
