Handsewn Hobbes (from the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes) plushie. I followed the Stuffed Hobbes pattern and instructions here but with a few changes (the tail is curled up, not straight).
UPDATE: Here’s my blog entry on working on this project: http://erdilien.wordpress.com/2012/08/28/a-philosopher-tiger-for-a-philosophy-major/
Made from polyester felt instead of fleece (the material suggested in the instructable), so it didn’t turn out too huggable. Will make another for my nephew using softer cloth.
