Hobbes - Amigurumi

Hobbes - Amigurumi
I've finally decided to write up my Hobbes pattern and instead of selling it I'd like to give it to you for free. The reason he is free is because the creator of Calvin and Hobbes, Bill Watterson did not want to commercialize his work so keeping that in mind Please don't sell this pattern and don't sell the completed work. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I originally made this up for my son because of his love for Hobbes (he's 23 now) I armed myself with Watterson's brilliant drawings as a reference. I made this pattern to look as close as possible to the Hobbes' drawings . I realized that Hobbes could be broken down into basic shapes. He also had the muzzle of a cat so I looked to the famous Amineko cat. Once I got the shapes down I worked on size. Until I started making him I never realized how different Hobbes looks from a regular cat. His head and body are a lot longer thanan normal cat plus he has the shortest fattest legs. That caused me problems since tubular legs and arms don't want to bend. Resources:

Baby Mushroom! So in my shop I've had sooooo many people ask for completed toys. I think people search for toys and find my etsy shop, don't know how to crochet, and it goes from there. I've been making lots of toys and have gotten a lot faster at it. I used to really push those deadlines, not having time to work on them and waiting til the last minute.

Unlike most of my other projects that are knitted this toy is crocheted. Crocheting seemed like a logical way of making it since most amigurumi-type toys are crocheted. Besides, crocheting lends itself to making all sorts of amazing smooth shapes without much effort.

Koala Bear Amigurumi I found a Koala Amigurumi Pattern in the Woman’s Day website and I have some off-white and gray organic cotton yarns on hand, so I made a pair of these small little stuffed koalas for my kids in reverse color. Some ideas to make it differently: 1. This adorable little koala is about 3-5″ tall only (depend on your yarn and the matching hook size), install a key ring on it’s head and turn it into a key chain, hang it to the bag’s zipper. 2. If we sew the limbs closer to the center of the body and insert 4 small strong magnets to the tip of each limb, you can make it “huggy” and hug on a tree branch or at the edge of your curtain or your pencil, ruler etc… 3.
