Did you know you should change your sewing machine needle regularly? It's as important as changing the oil in your car. A dull needle can ruin your fabric, but it also makes your machine work harder than it needs to. I change my needles after every 8-10 hours of sewing.
I don't like to dispose of sharp metal in the trash - I'm always worried that it might hurt someone. I usually put all my dead needles into an old pincushion - so I thought it might be fun to make one where the needles become part of the design. A hedgehog is the perfect needle-y critter!
Make a softie hedgehog that can be a toy or a pincushion!
