I'm normally not a needle-felting person, but that hedgehog on the packaging was sending me this "Please adopt me" vibe and gullible me fell into that trap. But it's okay, I have been longing for a cute pincushion for my sewing. :)
The kit does not come with the needle and mat, but I still have them from the needle felted Matryoshka doll project. The kit's a beginner project so a few hours was what I needed to complete it. Nice.
