Hobbes Security Blanket

After listening to my friends describe their pregnancies in the past, I fully expected to get bit hard by the nesting bug after my morning sickness went away. However, I did not feel the urge to make anything for my baby until this weekend. I think preparing to move this spring kept me from going into nesting mode. I felt a greater urge to purge and pack than to craft.

In the back of my mind, I picked out a project to make for my little one’s arrival. Almost two years ago, I crocheted a stuffed Hobbes for my hubby. The stripes seemed to take forever, so I knew I did not want to make a full-sized version again. I stumbled across a pattern a few days ago for a bunny security blanket. Remembering my desire to make a mini version of the stuffed animal I made hubby, I decided to tweak the pattern and make a Hobbes security blanket. The results:

If I made this project again, I would make the blanket part larger and elongate the head to create a more accurate look alike to Bill Watterson’s comic strip character. If any of you want to make your own Hobbes security blanket, please leave a comment below. If I have enough interest, I will write up the pattern.
