Those are SOOOO cute jeanius!!! Great job!!!

I started my hedgehog yesterday and am working on sewing the arms and legs. I am confused about how to do this because the directions don't seem to really tell you how. Do I fold the arm/leg over like the first pic and sew it up? Or do I do that and fold over the remaining section of the arm/leg and sew the two together. It's really hard for me to explain this for some reason in words so sorry if it doesn't make sense. That's why I am posting pictures. Which way is the right way?

Think of the blue part as the front of the hand/arm. You actually roll the whole 'arm' down. There is no elbow in the arm. That little corner is more like an armpit. I'm not sure how to explain it, but neither of those pictures are quite right. I remember being really confused by it too. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful, but I'm at work right now. If somebody hasn't done a better job of explaining it by the time I get home, I'll try to draw something up for you. Good luck! I love those colors

ya know, as I look at your pictures more, I think your purple/blue may be in the wrong spot. I think it should be along the long edge of the arm.

Yep. You should have picked up along the long side to knit the contrast and then rolled the arms down.

I hope they help. I remember that part being really confusing. I was so determined that my hedgehog was going to have elbows.
