I was recently introduced to the wonderful 1975 Soviet/Russian animated film, Hedgehog in the Fog. It is directed by Yuriy Norshteyn, produced by the Soyuzmultfilm studio in Moscow, and the Russian script was written by Sergei Kozlov.

Today I am celebrating this humble little creature with a roundup of hedgehog inspired crafts. The links below the photos will take you back to the original site where I found these projects. Most include a tutorial, while others are items for sale.
