Pincushion Hedgie

We found out that Alex is expecting a baby brother, so I've been in the studio trying to get some prep work done for a boyish wall-hanging for the baby's room. It's always a bit of a challenge to keep Alex entertained while I sew, but today I think the problem has been forever solved. Inspired by a memory of Alex being transfixed by a simple pincushion at Waldorf parent-child class, I whipped up a friendly felt hedgehog for her to play with. She could spend a solid hour just pushing pins in and out of him! Some may balk at the idea of a 2 1/2 year old playing with sharp, pointy objects, but she has yet to stab herself or others. :-)
