Custom plush - Hobbes by silentorchid Custom plush - Hobbes by silentorchid
***
I will not be making any more Hobbes plushes. The requests have gotten out of hand and I just can't make them anymore. I do have the sewing pattern for sale, if you'd like to try making one yourself: [link]
***

Custom plush based on the stuffed toy version of Hobbes, from Calvin and Hobbes.

Plush is 20 inches tall when sitting, and is made from soft velveteen fabric. All of his stripes are hand sewn, and he has shiny button eyes.

Would you consider selling one as a whole plush? And if so, how much?

Did you get the tut and pattern off of Instructables, because I saw a tutorial there.

i see the last comment on here about it being too expensive and it breaks my heart. walmart and mass production have destroyed the value of custom made. i've sculpted statuary in the past and people always ask me to make them something, and expect to pay $50 or $100 for it. "well that's what i would pay in the store". yes but the manufacture is making his money on volume. he paid much more for the original piece. "it took me a week working full time to do the original. could you work for a week for $50?"

Hello. I want these. I want one that is less than 50 bucks. What are the sizes under 40 dollars? It's pretty expensive. If you can, can you make it cheaper?

It depends on the size you want. For one like in the picture (20 inches tall) it is $150, not including shipping. A 10 inch tall version is $90 and a 15 inch tall version is $120.

Hey nice to find you here ! so cool ...
One of my friend just had a baby-boy and named him Calvin ... u know where i m going ...
So i want to know if u make them on demand and if yes how long does it take and of course the price ?? thanx a lot and really good job here !

silentorchid Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Yes, I do make them on demand. I'd love to make a Hobbes for a little Calvin :)
My commissions are on hold for another week or so (I'll be taking new orders starting April 15.) Once you've ordered, it will take me two or three weeks to complete sewing.

I can make Hobbes in a few sizes (height is measured from his bum to his ears.)
10 inches tall - $90
15 inches tall - $120
20 inches tall - $150
Prices do not include shipping, so let me know your zip code (or country if you're not in the US) and I'll figure out the shipping cost.

Send me a note if you'd like to order one or if you have any questions.
