Vegan Ivory Hedgehog Sewing Needle Pin Cushion

This is “Little Tag” the hedgehog, that Dave carved out of a Tagua Nut (South American Palm). Tagua Nut is commonly called “vegetable ivory”(Vegan) because it can be carved and scrimshawed like regular ivory. Dave has inset a small but powerful earth magnet inside him, and he would just love to hold your pins and needles for you and be your favorite pet. He is only about 1 5/8 inches long and you can tuck him safely in his valour pouch. "Little Tag" has been initialed and dated on the bottom by Dave, the artist

If you would like to view more photos of "Little TAg" please visit my Ebay auction.
