I am very excited to introduce my newest hedgehog, Thurston. Thurston is very hip and is actually the frontman for the alt/rock band Sonic Hedgehog Youth. He lives in L.A. and travels the world playing gigs with his band and although they haven’t headlined, they have played with many well-known bands such as The Rolling Pinecones, The Black Trees and De La Mole.
Thurston was quite a challenge to make because although the plaid for his pants is new fabric, it is a very delicate, weaved wool blend and it frays quite a lot. Even with fray-stop, it still takes a beating when you cut into it. But, after finishing him up, I think the tediousness of the project was well worth it. I may not be able to put Thurston up for sale right away, because I am most definitely smitten for this little prickly guy! Plus, it’s really difficult to pull him away from our ficus tree! Yours in crafting, jenny
