Here you'll find a variety of hedgehogs to sew, from flat plush designs that should be easy enough for a beginner, to more complex, three-dimensional softies. That you can sew from either fabric, felt, or fur.

And one of the fabric designs can be a great way to use up any larger fabric scraps you may have leftover from other sewing projects. Sewing a small stuffed animal can also be a great way to use any quilting pre-cuts you may have such as fat quarters, jelly rolls, or layer cakes. And you can combine prints in the same color category or sew your plushie from contrasting prints for more visual interest.

If you plan to sew your hedgehog from fur, you may find the following tips helpful: Cut your fur with the fur side down, and cut only through the fur's fabric backing, not into the fur itself. And since pattern templates for stuffed animals tend to be quite small, consider cutting them from cardboard instead of paper. Then you can trace around your pattern pieces onto your fabric instead of pinning them, enabling you to cut with greater accuracy.

If you plan to sew your hedgehog soft toy from felt, consider using a high quality wool or wool blend felt instead of the acrylic felt found in most craft stores. Your finished plushie will likely look better and last longer (and the felt won't pill).

And if your hedgehog softie will be a gift for a baby or toddler, just remember not to embellish it with anything that could come off and become a choking hazard like buttons. Better to embroider the facial features of your hedgehog (eyes, nose, etc.) instead. You may also want to stitch over your seams twice for extra durability.
