Can you hear him?… His joy and longing, his anticipation of that wonderful harmony, the first rays of the early sun in March singing with him… He is singing to the Spring… Welcome Spring…
Meet Reg! Standing 5 inches, he is a handmade OOAK hedgehog, lovingly handmade by Atelier Lavendel, using my patterns and high-quality all natural materials. This hedgehog is made with high quality woven mohair fabric from the traditional working German manufacture Steiff Schulte. His original glass eyes are handmade in the Lauscha glass manuafacture. I hand embroidered his nose with cotton embroidery floss. I used organic dried spruce wool shavings to stuff his body and limbs very firmly and added some glass pellets, safely placed within a linen bag, for more lovely weight. I used needle felting techniques to create his mushroom out of Australian merino wool. This hedgehog is hand painted using non-toxic pastel colours.
His jointed arms and needle jointed legs are movable and pose able.
I intended this hedgehog as a little treasure to display and to love or as a special heirloom toy to an older child for gentle play. Reg the hedgehog is now available here.
