Meet Elsie. How adorable is this appliquéd hedgehog? I made this sweet pillow as a gift for my sister-in-law who loves all things adorable and colorful. The pattern is Elsie Avenue by Sassafras Lane Designs.
It was my first time doing raw edge appliqué and I loved the process of creating using so many scrappy fabrics.
The hedgehog was stitched down using a zig zag stitch and the quills with a straight line stitch. The quills will fray a bit at the edges which I think adds to the charm.
Doesn’t she just make you happy? I hope she enjoys her new home!
