Hegdehog fun!!!

After my fun with owlies, hedgehog fever is on!!!
Seeing LollyChop create a pretty hedgehog name Hammie makes me itch to make one too! But to avoid the choosing n cutting of fabric and the whole sewing process, I try out a crochet pattern found online. Not too worry, I will try out Hammie too! (It's so irresistable, as I just love LollyChop's hegdehog)

The pattern I referred to was Sammy the Hegdehog by Shirley Chen which actually comes in a shroom. For the fuzzy hair/spikes, I use Nicole's Feisty Fiber (Lot 2336348) and change to acrylic yarn of light brown color for the face.

But due to the gauge of the two yarns, I end up modifying the face instructions to suit the feisty yarn!

Well, here comes my little hedgie or "Edgie".

Not forgetting this blue crochet hook given by my swap partner from Swap-bot, Sonia (Habubabu). Thanks a lot for the hooks.

Pictures by Olympus

Just got my first camera, is a Olympus m795. It may not be the best and user friendly camera but the supermacro mode are equipped with light to take a better picture. The water resistant up to 10meter and very durable would be a best suit for me as I am very clumsy and careless person.

Here are some pictures taken with the camera:

Some new found fun !

I gotta say my love is still with felt. It is actually very easy to manipulate but it does have it's down side. But, I guess no harm in trying new things and materials.

New found love : Perler Beads

Bought these babies in Ikea kids section. All you need is the drawing, an iron, wax paper, beads and the board, you got yourself a lots of fun! I've made a Union Jack flag for my swap partner and a felt skull for her daughther in "We Luv Surprise" swap in Swap-bot. And some others like one-up mushroom, love shapies and etc.

Love shapies

This is my first one, and the heat was too much and uneven, i melted most part of the heart.

Perler beads are somewhat versatile, you can make them into coaster, frigde magnet, pendant or even earrings. Some even make into a card holder, spotted at Geek Crafts.
