Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaway Day!

Giveaway #2
Meet Miss Petunia, an adorable green and purple hedgehog from Half Pint Knits!  Miss Petunia is a well mannered hedgehog and would never dream of poking anyone with her quills, but her eyes and nose may not be suitable for very young children.  Miss Petunia is a tiny little gal (5 inches long and 3 inches tall) and she loves to take long naps, so she comes along with her very own matching quilted nap mat that I made especially for her.  Would you like to give Miss Petunia a home?  Just leave a comment below telling me what kind of knitted critter would make a good friend for a lonely little hedgehog.

I'll draw a winner on Saturday, May 26 using the Random Number Generator.  The winner will be notified by email, so if you are a no-reply blogger make sure that you leave your e-mail address with your comment.

Visit Half Pint Knits Etsy Shop to find more hand-knit items for children of all ages!

Don't forget to check out all of the other fantastic giveaways this week at Sew, Mama, Sew!

Love the hedgehog - how about a turtle to go with it?

stitchinpenny said...

I think the hedgehog needs a little skunk as a friend since both can be a little off-putting.

fern said...

That is adorable!! A little skunk or fox would be a great friend. Or a chipmunk! Although a squirrel would have a great opportunity for a big bushy tail! Thanks for the giveaway!

Needled Mom said...

That is so adorable. I think he needs a squirrel friend with a big, fluffy tail.

Kathy H said...

I love the hedgehog and the little blanket is just beautiful too. I think a little bird would be a very good friend to a hedgehog as she could fly up ahead and make sure the way was safe for her little friend.

Jeni said...

Hmmm. love the hedgie. A good friend would be something completely different from the hedgehog...maybe an owl?

Michelle said...

maybe a possum?

SHANA said...

I think a sqirrel, owl, or a possum would be good friends for such a cute hedgehog!

hafza said...

I choose a mouse to accompany him!!

Close Knit said...

We have several crocheted turtles hanging around the house that my daughter made and I think they would get along well with the hedgehog.

Sis-O said...

I love her! I think the skunk would be a great companion.

brody's mom said...

How abouy a meercat, he could be lookout for trouble.

allthetrend said...

Are you kidding me? He is DARLING all on his own! I bet he would look super cute sitting next to a black and white RACCOON!!

Trish said...

I noticed someone said meercat... I'll second that.

Ida said...

She's just precious! I think she needs a beaver friend. :) [Great opportunity for felting the tail].

Candace said...

It needs a little brother or little sister to go with it. It's all about family!!

Pippa Parsons said...

Adorable!! I think a cute little bunny rabbit would be a good friend to the hedgehog, though someone else's idea of a squirrel is also great!

I think a little hedgehog would be a great friend for a turtle.

I Love the hedge Hog , he is so cute with the purple looking fur , I think a cute little brown bunny rabbit with extra long ears would be really cute with this with a purple bow. Thank you for the chance of this giveaway !

Dolores said...

What about a bushy tailed squirrel?

Jess said...

A little possum friend would be perfect! :)

Jeannie D said...

Love hedgehogs! Grew up with Beatrix Potter and one of Peter Rabbits friends was Mrs. Tiggy Winkles, a hedgehog. So, how about a sweet (or naughty!) bunny?

Habibti at Home said...

Oh how cute!!! We used to have a Real hedgehog and he always loved our dog so I would say a mini puppy. :)

Laura said...

Maybe the hedgehog could be friends with a llama or a donkey. If he wants a friend his own size....a bunny or squirrel???

Amy said...

I agree with some of the others... a squirrel would make a lovely friend. Such a cute little project!

Lindsay said...

oh! a little owl! :)

how absolutely adorable!! i think she (surely that cute little purple darling is a she) needs a ladybug friend. thanks for the opportunity and have a great day

The Sewing Dork said...

A butterfly comes to mind. They're kind of opposites, but you could easily incorporate so many colors!

Helen said...

Gorgeous little hedgehog. I think he would like to have a squirrel friend -two little cuties together.

sh said...

I have a little friend who would love 'Hedgie"

Hippie Housewife said...

A hedgehog needs a cute little skunk friend!

Judy said...

Perhaps a snake or a rabbit. Very cute.

Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) said...

Perhaps a fox or a bunny? Thanks for the chance.

Mhairi said...

I know they normally eat them but I think that Miss Petunia needs a snail to share her mat and listen to her dreams.
I love this hedgie and she would fit in very well on my sewing table. She could keep me company as I sew and help me with my colours and designs.

Jackie said...

Thanks for the adorable giveaway!

I think a turtle would be an adorable partner. He could ride around on his shell, haha!

jackieinmi67@gmail.com

Irina said...

maybe a little raccoon ... it's really cute! thanks for the chance!

Debi said...

I think it would be darling to have a caterpillar for a friend of this little adorable hedgehog.

Laura said...

A pig would be the perfect partner!

Amy said...

How about a cute little owl?? Thanks for the giveaway! Amy @ gasudimack(at)sbcglobal(dot)net

Vesuviusmama said...

I think a hard-shelled critter would make a good friend for a hedgehog - perhaps an armadillo?

So cute! I used to do educational programs in a museum with a real hedgehog! A flying squirrel would make a great friend. They are both shy! irw@hughes.net

claire said...

The hedgehog is adorable. How about a rabbit for a friend?

Ginny Axtell said...

Lesley said...

I think the hedgie could use a little pink mouse friend to share the quilt. Super cute! Love hedgehogs.

VickiT said...

Oh my gosh ~ that is just the cutest little hedgehog. And in my favorite color too. It would be VERY hard for me to part with that (IF I CAN) but I would love to win this and pass it on to my adorable little Granddaughter.

What's really funny after reading some other comments as I scrolled down to the box to make my own comment was that I saw many others saying the same as me. The very first thing that came to mind when you asked for a little buddy for Petunia was a cute little skunk. The black and white would be great with the colors you've chosen to make Petunia out of.

Flannel Farmer said...

How about a porcupine, to keep things "sharp"? Love this little one!

Sarah said...

I think a skunk would be adorable or maybe a little masked raccoon. This little gal is so cute!

Desi @ Wee Share said...

I think a squirrel would be the perfect friend :)

TheFancyFritter said...

My 4 year old daughter is obsessed with the color purple right now so she would love this fun little friend! He is adorable! He might need a fun orange, squirrel buddy! ;-) thanks so much!

Joanna said...

Hmm for a hedgehog I think either a skunk (already a popular suggestion I see) or a badge. :) Unless you plan on making them to scale.. then, maybe a kitten or perhaps a baby bunny? (Trying to think hedgehog size. ^_^ )

He's adorable btw. ^_^

principeta said...

We love to have Miss Petunia home with use,together with her sleeping pad,lovely colors.For her friends perfect would be squirrel and bunny.

Jean said...

he's very cute. I think he would love a monkey friend.

Appie said...

So cute! I vote for a "little" baby dinosaur.... maybe in the green color to coordinate with the purple.

Melanie said...

OM Goodness! I cannot believe the cuteness of Miss Petunia! I have to agree with all those other comments that suggested a wee little skunk friend! Thanks for sharing :)

Jodi said...

She is just lovely. Would have to explain the difference between hedgehogs and echidna's to my Daughter but I think she would love it.
I think a good hedgehog friend would be a rabbit.

ejricca said...

I think she needs a mouse for a friend! Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

Kathleen said...

Why, another little hedgie, of course! Or maybe a ferret -- imagine the trouble those two could get into!

Binks said...

So cute! I think she needs a rabbit friend. As a bunny owner I looked into suitable playmates for rabbits and a hedgehog was one of them. They'd be so cute together.

Laurel09 said...

Your hedgehog is so cute - I love the colors! I think that a fox or a squirrel would be really cute to go with him!

i love the hedgie! they are a common animal in UK, so other common critters are badgers and foxes, which would make a good friend for your hedgie :)
