  1. Thank you for the lovely pattern. I really enjoyed the video. Ben definitely has the good looks and acting ability to be a star.

  2. Thank you for the adorable pattern! Enjoyed meeting more of the Hedgie family on video and was very impressed at their ability to sneak up on Ben while he slept….perhaps dreaming about a family of the cutest hedgies ever!

  3. what I love the best are the “beady” eyes and button noses….and Ben of course!!!

  4. OH Helen the Hedgies are SEW cute and thank you for another great Softie to make! Can’t wait for the rest of the Little Family! Ben is just too sweet and a BIG huggable Bear!

    Thanks Helen,
    Jan G.

  5. Oh, I just love that big cuddle bug, Ben!! The Hedgie family look like great new friends. So happy they’ve arrived on the scene before the Holidays! Thanks for the fun, Helen!

  6. Hi Helen another lovely pattern, how do you make time no only to sew them but also a video! Well done

  7. I’ll immediately grab your rss as I can’t find your e-mail subscription hyperlink or newsletter service. Do you’ve any? Please let me recognise so that I could subscribe. Thanks.

  8. Thank you all for your kind comments – the ones about Ben’s acting ability did make me chuckle – all he was required to do was remain asleep – which he managed with no difficulty whatsoever!! xx

  9. It’s so funny! And lovely…

  10. How cute is that little hedgehog?! Many thanks for the pattern. you have another new follower. such sweet patterns.
    Ben has a remarkable talent for staying asleep… not sure how he manages that. Seriously, our lab/ridgie cross wouldn’t want to miss a moment of whatever we were doing and would wake up and stick he nose in everything, as well as his big wet tongue and most likely try to take his new ‘gift’.

  11. This little hedgehog is so-o cute! Thank you. Am I to assume that he is made with the mouse pattern? If so, are there any additional instructions for turning the mouse into a hedgehog?

    • Hi Vera – thanks for your comment – no Podge is a completely separate pattern to the pincushion mice and is free to newsletter readers. Just join using the box in the right hand sidebar and Podge’s pattern will be sent to you straight away (with lots more goodies to follow over the coming weeks!). Helen xx

  12. I got it! Thanks so much! He is just so cute!

  13. Me encanta este precioso erizo, me encantaria tener el patron
