Some friends of mine asked me to make a "Hobbes" tiger plush for their son for Christmas. He's been really into the "Calvin & Hobbes" comic.
The image above is from the comic and is what I based the design off of. In the comics, Hobbes is a real live tiger to Calvin, but to everyone else, he's seen as the stuffed toy tiger in the picture.
I'm really pleased with how he turned out! I almost wish I could keep him! Well, I can always make another one! I'm sure I'll end up making another one at some point anyway! ;)
After doing the stuffed lion, I didn't think a tiger would be too difficult. The most "difficult" (ie: time-consuming) part was doing the stripes. The stripes on his back, legs, and tail were machine-stitched. But I hand-stitched the stripes on his head, since they had to wrap around from the back tot he front.
