Folded hedgehog

Evening all,

I've just got back from our monthly craft club and this is what Wendy taught us to make tonight.

I'm sure lots of you have seen these book folded creatures before and I was really looking forward to learning how to do it.

We all really enjoyed the evening.  She is made from 200 folded pages and took me all the evening to make.  I have half a book left so am going to make another for a friend.

Happy Crafting Everyone!

Lovely - I thought these would have taken days and days to make, so I'm amazed that this is just one evening's work

Barb this is so amazing. I also have seen it before but it still is a question for me how to make it! Maybe I will learn it some time?

WOW - that's marvellous Barb. I have only ever folded an old craft mag into a Christmas tree for the hall table and LOVED it. Haven't folded a book yet, but you've certainly inspired me to have a go. What a fun evening you must've had!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Totally awesome, Barb! I´ve seen some folded book projects before but have absolutely no idea how it´s done. It looks very complicated and I´m always so impressed. Love your hedgehog!

Hi Barb - that is so cute! I love it.
Just thought I'd let you know that Jo has been in hospital, I don't know what with. I was wondering about the ATC swaps but one of the girls on A DT I'm on let us know as Jo is on the DT too.
Hope you are ok - sound like you had a good holiday.
I have a 'big' birthday coming up later in the year too!
Hugs,
