Thanks guys, I'm glad to feel all the Hobbes love!

When I first started the project I gathered all the books together and started
flipping through them to find good pics of Hobbes as the stuffed toy.
But I would start rereading the books and would get lost for hours in their amazing world.

..Hobbes cutting off all of Calvin's hair..the transmorgifier spitting out copies of Calvin..
the two plotting to steal Susie's doll Betsy
and one of my favourite scenes where  to the horror of Cavin,
Hobbes falls into the hands of Susie and ends up having tea with her.

teachingjonah: I'll try and post some more pics today...the sun has disappeared so
they might not be the best quality.

Great job!  My two sons, almost as old as yours, would sure like him.

What adjustments did you make to the pattern? Did you just make the head longer?
I have a friend who may need one of these.    Cheesy

Wow awesome job on Hobbes!

The work in progress picture is great.  My 8 year old son just discovered my Calvin and Hobbes book and I've been reading them again too!  It is really a brilliant comic.  You've inspired me to try a Hobbes but I won't be able to get to it until after Christmas.  Thanks for posting.
