I grew up reading Garfield and Peanuts comic strips. It wasn’t until somewhere in my teenage years I was introduced to Calvin and Hobbes — I instantly fell in love. These comics were intelligent, hilarious, and poignant. Like many, I saw a little of myself in both Calvin and Hobbes. So when I heard my 5-year-old niece was being read these comic strips every night before bed, I thought what better a birthday gift than her very own Hobbes stuffed animal. So, I grabbed the instructions I found online and went to town. Again I relied heavily on my mother’s sewing expertise to help complete this project in time to surprise my niece with her gift. And like any Calvin and Hobbes fan would, she loved it.
