Crafted from 100% wool yarn and stuffed with pure wool, these hedgehogs were made using a Snowfall Studio original pattern. These little fellows are for sale in my Etsy shop, but feel free to contact me to request a custom order!
I was super excited to receive a package addressed to Snowfall Studio today. The packaged contained an absolutely darling book called Baby Brights, compiled by Kathleen McCafferty. My fish rattle pattern is included, as are some of the cutest baby items that I’ve ever seen. If you are an avid crochet fan, I highly recommend you pick up a copy.
I’ve finally escaped from the pile of nursing textbooks that has held me captive since January. Finals are not fun, especially pharmacology… but I’m happy that this semester’s 20-credits worth of classes are ending.
Truthfully, Snowfall Studio has been a faint glimmer off in the distance, but I can feel my creativity beginning to thaw from the long, cold winter. Look for some new designs in the not-too-distant future.
Parenting teens can be brutal marvelous for the ego.
Recently I was conducting a photo session for the newest batch of crocheted toys while my two teenage sons were loitering nearby. Having long ago exhausted the fun of mocking me for photographing stuffed animals, they were instead conversing about school. Until I pulled out this little penguin.
“Hey!” my youngest boy exclaimed with a smile, “You actually made something cute!”
There are 15 species of hedgehog. Plus this newly identified version.
This rainbow hedgehog was identified by my youngest daughter. At age 9, she is an animal lover and aspiring veterinarian. She is an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys creating elaborate houses for crickets and planting shrubs which will attract butterflies. When I initially designed my hedgehog pattern, she suggested creating a colorful one.
While I prefer the natural hedgie, switching it up a little was a fun challenge. It’s important to keep life interesting!
