I looked around.... Cars... Cars.... Nothing pretty or non-plastic :-(
So I went online to see if I could find something there. And I did! A hedgehog! Cute as a button... But they only had a smaller size and I thought it to be quite expensive. So... Being handy and having s dad that is good at woodworking... I figured we could EASILY make one ourselves... Heh heh
Here is our inspiration
So here is the process in pictures
At this point I realized I might have chewed a bit too large bite :-)
How on earth can I make this pile of fabric and bathroom rug to look like a hedgehog!!??
To me it resembled more of a beaver or water rat...
We covered the rod with plastic garden hose and made a leather sleeve from an old skirt
And I have to say... It looks pretty darn good!!
