I have a friend who is expecting a little boy next month. They had a couples baby shower today. I knew most of the cute baby gifts would be more exciting for mom than dad so I wanted to have something the he would especially like.
He's has this thing about zombies and its a bit of a joke with our group of friends that when the zombies do attack we're all heading to his house as he knows all the ways to survive a zombie attack.
All the red, black, and white baby things made me think of zombies so I decided he needed some zombie item. I came up with the idea of a "zombie hunter training" ball for the baby. I embroidered the baby zombie, and the "Future Zombie Hunter" on black satin and white flannel. I found this great black and red skull fabric and also used some red velvet, red grid fleece, white striped terry to make lots of different textures for the baby. I also added some ribbon taggies. I finished it off with black felt end caps embroidered with the biohazard symbol.
Dad and Mom both loved it and everyone thought it was hilarious. Dad says its going in his room though not the babies.
