FurGots on Craftster made a plush Hobbes, from the comic Calvin & Hobbes. In only 3 hours! I like his serious face. She says:

After a conversation with my friend, who dressed up as “Calvin” for Halloween, I got around to thinking…. it would be awfully neat to make a Hobbes stuffed animal. With all due respect to Mr. Watterson, who never licensed his characters to toy makers, I decided to make one of my own out of appreciation for the comic.

    Hi! I would LOVE a pattern for this, as I am trying to make one of these for my best friend. I need to make it within the next week! Could you possibly show me all of the parts of Hobbes separately? Thanks!

    Hi Faith! You should get in touch with the maker, FurGots on The link is in the post above. I don’t know whether she has images & specs on each part individually, but the photo on Craftster is definitely a good place to start.
    Good luck, and have fun!
