Todays craft idea came from a Pinterest pin which I pinned nearly a year ago. It was an idea from the Darling Petunia blog which was a link from the Dollar Store Crafts website.
Our project was to make a toy from a microfibre cleaning mitt - the type of thing you perhaps use to clean your car. I hunted everywhere for the right type (it had to have a thumb) and then eventually I found some in Poundland. When planning summer holiday craft projects it's important that they don't cost a lot and so to find the mitt for £1 was great. I bought two!
A tuorial for this project can be found on the Darling Petunia Blog, but here's mine.
First Cut off the cuff and the thumb. Leave a little fabric at the base of the thumb.
Add some beady little eyes.
Turn inside out and sew the cuff portion into a point but leave the thumb open.
Turn the right way out.
Sew up the opening where the thumb was.
Add a pom pom nose and your hedgehog is complete. Lara called him 'Spike'.
We also made up the orange mitt and called him 'Prickle'
