Size:  468.8 KBI made this for my mothers birthday in November, the hedgehogs each represent her and her great grandchildren, the youngest of whom is only six months old. It has a pocket of sand in the bottom to keep the pattern near the top! She loves showing the kids! the bow was on there just for her birthday!!

    Very cute. We call those Draft Dodgers here. My Puppy thinks it is a toy to be pulled around.

    So very cute and a great gift with lots of meaning! And who doesn't love hedgehogs? They are so very British, aren't they?

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    That is so cute. What did you stuff it with besides the sand? I just bought a very average looking one. Yours is better!!

    Hi, I made a long sock with the sand, and pushed in loads and loads of polyester filling, I think it was an old pillow, but it is stuffed tight because they always seem to go slouchy after a while! Thanks for asking.

    Hi, yes they are and are in danger of dying out because we all have wooden or brick fences around our houses and they can't travel about. We are supposed to cut small holes in our fences to make it better for them. I keep handing my DH the saw but he just can't bear to cut his beloved fence!!
