In the world of internet animals, hedgehogs are some of the most beloved. It’s easy to see why—their perfectly rotund bodies and tiny feet will make anyone go “awww.” (Just look at Instagram-famous Azuki the pygmy hedgehog if you need proof.) We think that this challenging hedgehog kit from Kirki Press rivals Azuki's cuteness. Through a series of beginner and advanced embroidery stitches, you will create your own version of a hedgie. By the time you’re done following the step-by-step instructions, you’ll have a plush toy that you can name whatever you like.
- All DIY embroidery kits include the following: screen printed pattern on cotton fabric; printed backing fabric; a range of DMC embroidery floss; eco-friendly stuffing; and step-by-step instructions.
- You will need a 6” hoop to embroider this pattern.
- The hedgehog kit is considered Level 3 difficulty—it uses a variety of stitches that cover up most of the pattern surface.
- When complete, the plush doll is about 4.5” tall.
About Kiriki Press
"I wanted to make an embroidered doll for my niece so I decided to learn how to stitch," Kiriki Press creator Michelle Galletta says. "Since I couldn't find a modern pattern anywhere, I made my own and fell in love with both embroidery and pattern design in the process. I studied printmaking at university, so once I realized that I could screen print my patterns for others to make, Kiriki Press was born."
