Simple Sewing and Rhythm of the Home
Today marks the release of the Rhythm of the Home Spring edition! Great news for those looking for inspiration.

Again, I’m pleased to say I got to participate! To go along with the Sewing Box–inspired by Naomi, of course, I thought I’d post an idea that’s simple and fun for little hands and picks up on the hedgehog theme i keep gravitating towards. How can one resist?
This hedgehog requires only brown and white felt, a few buttons and some glue.

  1. Cut out the body shape of a hedgehog out of the white
  2. Cut a bunch of little triangles out of the brown.
  3. Using tacky glue, start gluing the triangles to the rump of your hedgehog, layering them as you get towards it’s head. 
  4. Allow time to dry.
  5. With a needle and thread, help your child sew on the button for eyes and a nose and done!
Things to do with your new hedgehog:
: :Add magnetic stripping to make a sweet fridge decoration
: :Make more hedgehogs, and other animals to add to your felt board
: :Sew the hedgehog to a barrette clip to wear in your hair
: :Or a pin, for your jacket…

Making things with your kids can be magical! Their perspective is so unique and can really sparkle when you take on these projects together, Naomi had a completely different vision of what her hedgehog should be. She insisted on 2 eyes and I love how it turned out.
