Felt Hedgehog Costume- abethanymind via Flikr

This little Hedgehog couldn’t be any cuter! No tutorial to go with this adorable photo but it can be recreated with brown felt cut into points and adhered to a warm and comfy romper. Keeping the points less variegated along the top prevents anything from distracting from that adorable baby face ! Add an oval belly and pop up eyes for the sweetest costume on the block!  Bethany shares lots of shots of her masterpiece from all angles be sure to check it out here:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/abethanymind/5133967023/in/set-72157622545388749/
