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.
