Embroidered Calvin & Hobbes

Bill Watterson, you've been outdone. Laura Hartrich made this embroidered panel as a birthday gift for her son. She used a cartoon in Scientific Progress Goes Boink as a reference, which she enlarged and then transfered to carbon paper. 

The project, which measures about 12 by 14 inches, took about 95 hours of work. That's intense! On reddit, she expresses a sentiment familiar to all crafters:

I can see some flaws, of course, and some things I would have done differently if I had more time. I really wanted to get it done in time for my kid's birthday. And I was really ready to be DONE at that point.

You can see more pictures of her crafting work on Flickr.
