about a month ago a friend asked if I "could" make a Hobbes for their grandson, who is 35yrs old and a Calvin and Hobbes FREAK.... a bit puzzled at first (why dont you just go buy one, right?..).... The only stuffed Hobbes that are out there are ones that people have made... Not being a HUGE Cavlin and Hobbes fan, I just didnt realize that they have NEVER been made into comercial stuffed figures.....

Challenge ON!!!.... I looked at hundreds maybe thousands of pictures and sat down with my handy dandy sketchbook trying my best to come up with a pattern...after a few hours of drawing and A LOT of hours of sewing...... this is what I came up with...

*** for all of you Hobbes lovers out there (and anyone else) please let me know what you think, I know he isnt "perfect", but hey, I tried  Wink***










cant forget the red scarf for all of his adventures!!



thanks for looking!!

Wow, amazing!  Almost TOO good!  Is the fabric fleece?  This looks better than if it was commerically manufactured.  You are too much Mindy!  I hope they paid you well!

thanks Leslie!!... it is fleece all lined with interfacing so that it didn't stretch in weird ways..... and YES they paid me very very well... twice what I probably would have charged!! when they asked how much they owed me (hate talking $$ with people) I told them whatever they thought was fair

Yay! Hobbes! That 35 year old grandson is one lucky person!

I do understand why the creator of Calvin and Hobbes never wanted his characters turned into a commercial product, but it still makes me utterly happy to see them as stuffies- and your Hobbes is purrfect Grin

All we have to decide is what to craft with the time that is given to us.
