I created this wee hedgehog in punchneedle embroidery, which is akin to an ancient rug hooking technique on a smaller scale. Punch Needle or Needle Punch, is an ancient rug-hooking technique shrunken down onto a much smaller scale and uses a special twice-threaded hollow needle, embroidery floss and weaver's cloth. Each tiny loop is painstakingly and meticulously hand punched with love by me.

I created this design on weaver's cloth that my husband and I hand dyed a rich brown and then framed in a 3 inch (7.6 cm) embroidery hoop that I stained. I also used hand dyed embroidery floss in this design for depth.

This adorable wee hedgehog's body is done on a higher setting on my punch needle, which means that the loops are longer and his body stands out more than his face.

I saw a picture online of a hedgehog getting a bath. It was one of the cutest things ever. I decided I simply had to make a wee hedgehog in punchneedle! :)

Perfect for your wall, or he could also be used as an adorable unique Christmas ornament for your tree!

FYI:
Some elements may vary slightly depending upon availability of products needed to create the art. Each one is hand drawn (no pattern) so please allow for subtle differences. I endeavor to stick as closely to original as possible but sometimes thread shades will vary slightly - as most are hand dyed. The weaver's cloth is also hand dyed and though the same brand and color dye will be used as the original to dye the weaver's cloth, shades may vary slightly from the original pictured depending on your computer screen and dye lot.

Because he is made especially for you, each one will be slightly different - making this truly a one of a kind piece of art you will treasure

A 3 inch (7.6 cm) circle of oatmeal colored felt made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles is attached to the back, which will be initialed and dated by me! :)

The hedgehog arrives in pretty eco-friendly packaging all set for gift giving and comes with a small brass nail for hanging!
