I wanted to make a simple amigurumi animal, and I chose a hedgehog:
The pattern is actually very similar to a mouse, since it is based on a drop-shaped body, although hedgehog’s ears are smaller. I added a cardboard base in the inside to make it more stable. Also, when sewing the eyes I tried to make them look “alive” by leaving a tiny clear area that looks like a sparkle.
This is the pattern for the body and the ears:
I sewed the prickles all over the body, and applying some eye shadow with a little brush I highlighted some details at the snout, between the eyes and among the prickles.
I will keep thinking on new patterns; maybe in the future I can build Noe’s ark =P
