We All Have Our Hobbies - Back Patch
This illustration is a reimagining of motifs from antique wax seals and coins from the mid to late 1800's. Witches became associated with "hobbies" is because "to ride one's hobby-horse" (think child riding on those sticks with the horse head) mimicked a witch riding her broom. "To ride one's hobby-horse" is an old phrase that means to follow a favorite past time, which evolved into our modern use of the word "hobby."
