Use end of hook to keep shape from turning inside-out as you go, if necessary. Fasten off, leaving long tail for attaching. Do not stuff.
Attach arms to sides of body. 
Pin legs on each side of the base of the body. Sew along the entire length of the leg so it curves along with the shape of the body. Weave in ends.

Coat of Spines
You’ll construct the spines in two strips – one longer strip that will wrap from the base, across the top of the head, and down the other side and a shorter strip that will cover the remainder of the hedgehog in the back.

Long strip
Leaving long tail, ch 46.
R1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 1, turn. (45)
R2: Sc in first st. *Tr in next st, sc in next st. Repeat from * across. Ch 1, turn.
R3: Sc in each st across. Ch 1, turn.
R4: Repeat Row 2.
R5: Repeat Row 3.
R6: Repeat Row 2.
Fasten off, leaving long tail.

Short strip
Leaving long tail, ch 20.
R1-R6: Repeat rows 1-6 of long strip, with a stitch count of 19 for each row.
R7: Repeat Row 3.
R8: Repeat Row 2.
R9-R12: Repeat rows 7-8.

– Attach the short strip first, centered on the back of the hedgehog, the bottom edge even with the base of the hedgehog. Sew around entire perimeter of strip to attach.
– Then, wrap the long strip from one side to the other, taking care to make it evenly spaced around the hedgehog’s face, arms, and legs (I recommend pinning into place to secure). It will slightly overlap both the short strip and limbs.
– Sew around entire perimeter of long strip (I added a very small amount of loose stuffing under this strip as I sewed to puff the spines out a bit).

Attach ears
Attach ears 2-3 rows above eyes, in front of spines.
To make a heart, follow the directions here (for the 1.75″ heart), then pin the heart inside the hedgehog’s arms. Using your yarn needle and cream yarn, attach the heart to the arms by weaving needle through one hand, through the heart, and through the other hand (repeating as needed).
