A friend of mine, Brandon, and his wife recently had a baby boy. By recently, I mean about three months ago, they had their kid. I'm a little late with the baby gift, but I finally finished it tonight.

Brandon is wild about the Punisher like I am for Spider-Man. As soon as I found out they had a baby boy, I knew I had to make a couple of Punisher-themed onsies. Oh hell, who am I kidding? If they'd had a little girl, I would have made them with pink skulls...and maybe one with a bow.

Thanks to iron on fusing, some black fabric in my stash (from a Doctor Who swap I participated in last year), and my computer, I made three customized onsies. I checked Yahoo images for Punisher logos. Another friend picked out a package of three onsies for me (I don't know how to shop for kids' clothes. She made it easy for me and picked up a set that the little babino could grow into), I picked three different logos. I bet you money that Brandon can look at each logo and tell me exactly when each one was introduced.

I ironed out the onsies and measured across the chest to get the right size for the transfers. I used Publisher to size them out right and printed them out in greyscale. I used the fusable interface to turn the fabric into iron on's. After they were ironed to the onsies, I used my sewing machine to do a blanket stitch all the way around the skulls and eyes (I didn't do the nostrils...those were too damn small to sew).

I'm getting together with Brandon and his wife next weekend. They don't know what the gift is, only that it's something "Brandon-themed."
