Hedgehogs - miniature, quilling

Homyachok challenge blog has a new quilling challenge:Fluffies!
Create any project using at least 3 "fringed flowers" elements. They don't have to be flowers, but there has to be fringe. I'm not a fan of quilled flowers, as you may know; they are beautiful, but it' so easy to think of a flower - no challenge; so I prefer everything-but-flowers. For this challenge I came up with an idea of... hedgehogs!
Miniature - as I'm nuts about mini sizes lately.
There they are: a family of hedgehogs among dandelions. =) On my palm so that you can feel the size.


"The basement" is made of corrugated strip, about 30 bunches of grass are stuck in there too. For the flowers I used a 3 mm thick strip. For the hedgehogs: 7 mm dark grey strip and 1,5 mm beige strip.
And some more closeups:
And the hedgehog in my fingers:
He has everything: 4 paws, ears, nose, eyes and even a tail!
Thanks for looking! Join us!
P.S.: does any of you have any fine idea of what to do with these guys?.. otherwise they will get lost in a dusty box for my other mini-creations...

  6. How adorable! I am amazed by your creations every time you post something. This little creation is just fascinating! I'm afraid I am still on flowers mostly, however I am making a cute little birth announcement that has animals, not dimensional, but not flowers either. I just love your blog and your fantastic hedgehog creation!
    hugs,
    Ellen

    1. большое спасибо за внимание, Вика =) И за награду =) забирать, правда, не буду, потому что моя дочурка мне вообще ничего сделать не дает, просто не хватит времени даже поблагодарить, а ленту блогов я давно уже не проверяю - так что и выбрать никого не смогу, кому передать, опять же банально некогда =( но большое спасибо ;)

  9. Those are so cute. Maybe you could find a glass jar or glass cover and make a little habitat for them to live in.
