1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Calvin and Hobbes! on: October 22, 2011 10:20:26 PM
Growing up, getting to see Calvin and Hobbes in the newspaper before heading off to school was a daily treat. I was so infatuated with the strip that naturally I wanted my own plushies. Sadly, I never got them because there were no officially-sanctioned Calvin and Hobbes dolls.

Until last year, when I decided to make my own!



The bodies are stuffed with garden wire to make them poseable. Unfortunately,
I don't really flex them too much since it is a bit fragile. Is there any other
type of wire suitable for this purpose?



Calvin is about six inches tall while Hobbes is a foot tall.



It may have taken years of waiting, but it was worth it in the end!

I love them! Where did you get those eyes, btw? The green is really pretty.

I'm not familiar with the series, but those details on his costume are incredible!

I love them all, but I'm particularly in love with David Tennant and his Tardis!
