I love my most recent project. Inspired by my favorite comic strip, I decided to make myself a Hobbes and was even lucky enough to find a pattern saving me the trouble of designing one myself.

If you would like to make your very own Hobbes, you can find the free pattern and tutorial at Instructables.com. Here, I've given a direct link even:
