NEEDLE FELTED HEDGEHOG by GOURMETFELTED~ROSIE

This is ROSIE~

SOMEONE ASKED ME IF I EVER MADE A HEDGEHOG, AND I HADN’T, SO I FIGURED THAT I’D GIVE IT A TRY! This is ROSIE and she loves her felted flower! I used a wire armature in her so that she could roll up as they do. She is 5 inches long and 2 1/2 inches tall. She has black glass eyes and a sculpted nose. I added some whiskers too! She is so cute!

  1. This is absolutely adorable! I love the pink feet. I don’t know if my favorite picture is the one of her rolling into a ball or peeking over the flower!

  2. awww, how cute. When I first saw this pic I thought it was another new entry and I was shocked that anyone, other than you, could manage to pull off such detail and lifelike charm. Then I realized it was you, Gerry and I must say, you are consistently fabulous in every species!

  3. Thanks so much! This is my FIRST hedgehog!!LOL!!

  5. Thank you very much!!

  6. What kind of wool did you use for the “prickles” on its back?

  7. It is yarn.

  8. This I have got to try! Thanks for the answer.

  9. I was sent to you , in hopes that you could tell me what size eyes to buy when trying to make the little dogs. Is 4mm right or do I need smaller.

    the pictures are great. sure hope you can help?

    thanks. Linda

  10. Hi Linda,
    Welcome to my blog! Was it Jerry that sent you? I do usually use 4mm eyes for 3 to 4 inch dogs. I use 3mm for 2 inches or so, and 5 mm for 5 inches or so. Of course it would also depend on the breed as some breeds have more prominent eyes that others. You can make eyes look larger or smaller with wool too. I have a post on adding eyes that you might enjoy reading. I have a few sizes of eyes as sometimes one pair doesn’t look right and you can put larger or smaller in. I hope that this is helpful. Please feel free to ask any more questions.
    HAPPY FELTING!
