I made Hobbes for my fiance for Christmas and am just now getting around to posting it. It was totally inspired by https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=330848.0. This is the first time I've made anything were I didn't follow a pattern strictly, so even though he is imperfect, I love how Hobbes came out.

He is really good.  I am thinking about doing Calvin and Hobbes decoration in my classroom but they are hard to find... Maybe I need to make a Hobbes Cheesy

Thanks everyone for the comments

And sukigirl74 thank you for making hobbes I don't know that I ever would have thought to make him if I hadn't seen yours. Calvin and Hobbes is my fiance's favorite, I bought him the complete collection a few years ago, and I make him a calvin and hobbes shirt every year.
