Hi!

My girlfriend made me this pretty amazing hobbes plush toy (from Bill Watterson's Calvin & hobbes). I was very surprised as I had no idea she could make anything like this, In 7 years I have never seen her even pick up a needle.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Fantastic.  I love him.

Tell your girlfriend she did a great job.  I especially love the little details on his tummy fur.

Considering they never made merch for Calvin and Hobbes, this is truly a great plush to behold. So cute!
