Herbert the Hedgehog Beaded Critter

Herbert the Hedgehog is my latest beaded creation.  He has gotten a lot of attention at the bead shop (Bead Basics) that I teach at in Coon Rapids.  He will be on the September/October teaching schedule.  I'm very excited to be teaching him!

I put a pin back on the belly so I can wear him on my lapel or jacket!  I honestly don't know how the idea came to me but when it did I had a lot of fun with it.  It did take me three tries to get the head right.  The first one was way to long and he looked like an anteater!  So I shortened it up a bit and it was still too long.  Third time was a charm.  I got the face/head length just right and I attached it to the body.  I was SO excited when I got it finished.  I just liked how he turned out!

I have the pattern ready for sale in PDF format for an immediate download in my web store.
I am also going to put in the store the hard copy pattern that you see to the left.  It will have to be mailed (snail mail).
I will also be adding more beading patterns to my web store in the upcoming weeks. 

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
