I made six of these hedgehogs as Christmas presents this year using this pattern. The Fun Fur was such a pain to work with--especially at first--but they turned out so cute I think it was worth it. (Though right now I'll be happy if I never see another hedgehog, let alone make one.) The ones already given were, I hope, well received. These last three are a gift for my "nieces" who sadly may be too old for this kind of gift really soon.
