“Calvin and Hobbes” was daily comic strip written and illustrated by Bill Watterson. It ran in the newpapers for ten years, from 1985 to 1995. Bill Watterson never licensed merchandising rights for his beloved characters, but Craftsters have made many types of crafts inspired by these beloved characters. 

It’s hard to believe that this is the first hoopla that ChameleonHound made! Inspired by the header of her newpaper’s comics page, she faithfully recreated this colorful scene of our two heroes reading the funnies.

yakkomia drafted her own pattern and used polar fleece to create these adorable Calvin and Hobbes stuffed dolls.
beckashell altered a children’s book to create this recipe book featuring all the horrible meals poor Calvin’s mom forced upon him.
Look at nmcakemom07‘s intricate beaded patch of Calvin as a superhero! Backed with felt, it can be sewn onto almost any item.
haroldlovesmaude depicted three great scenes from the comic strip in canvas paintings that she made for a swap partner. She really captured the essence of Calvin in this memorable panel.

Although we miss the our fix of Calvin and Hobbes in the daily newspapers, there are 18 published books with the old comic strips available to enjoy. If you’d like to see more Calvin and Hobbes crafts, click on the Craftster tag “Calvin and Hobbes“.
