Miss Matty the hedgehog wears a made-to-measure floral-print dress with a purple cardigan. She is made from mohair and has glass eyes. Her nose, mouth and claws are embroidered in black thread and she is filled with polyester and poly-pellets to give her a little weight. The paws are crafted from pure wool felt. An antique style brass pin SQ (Sue Quinn) badge is attached to her cardigan.
Miss Matty is a one of a kind hedgehog created especially for The Bear Garden.
