Make your win­ter mag­i­cal when you stitch two cute hol­i­day hedge­hogs!

Cross Stitch Crazy - - Freegift -

These wood­land crea­tures are hav­ing too much fun to hi­ber­nate! Watch these cute hedge­hogs get stuck into their favourite win­ter ac­tiv­i­ties as you stitch them to life with whole stitches, back­stitch, frac­tion­als and a few French knots. Though they re­quire quite a va­ri­ety of stitches to make, they’re nice and small over­all – so you’ll have them ice skat­ing and singing Christ­mas car­ols in no time!

Once stitched, you can send these de­light­ful Mar­garet Sherry char­ac­ters zip­ping away to friends and fam­ily this hol­i­day sea­son. Your loved ones are sure to ap­pre­ci­ate the thought and in­tri­cate de­tail that’s gone into these stitches. Or, if you pre­fer, pick up some lit­tle hoops and pop these cuties in­side to make pre­cious baubles for you to keep and hang on your Christ­mas tree.

Be sure to stitch your whole stitches first, and your back­stitch af­ter, to get the full ef­fect of the hedge­hogs’ spikey spines. And, for an ex­tra-spe­cial fin­ish, swap our white aida for a light blue or sparkly back­ground to add a touch of magic to these frol­ick­ing crea­tures. No mat­ter where they go, these hedge­hogs will get ev­ery­one in the mood for Christ­mas!
