As long as you do not damage the inside portion of the thumbdrive, it will still operate just fine.
As for me I think this is a great idea! I have made one of mine into SpongeBob.Sponge Bob Thumb Drive Mod
This is a fast fun mod and craft.Essentials needed:
SpongeBob stuffed keychain (or similar toy)
pair of scissors
needle and thread
We have the technology we can rebuild him.....
First we need to give SpongeBob a little breathing room in his pants. Don't worry Bob this won't hurt a bit.
He looks to have taken that pretty well.
Next is to open up the seam in the top of his square head. After that is done some of the fiberfill inside will need to be removed to accommodate the thumb drive. Only remove about a quarter size amount.
Push the thumb drive into the top seam, and oput the hole made in SpongeBob's britches. Then you need to stitch back up the top of his head so it looks the same as before.
Now let's see our handy work.
Here is SpongeBob getting his thumb drive on.
And now he is ready to go anywhere.
