There is a zombie autopsy game on here somewhere.... it was made from an operation game set....

Here it is! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=265487.0

i'm sure your boyfriend will like whatever it is you come up with! sounds awesome!

When I took screenprinting at my other college I made a Zombie Hunter tshirt for one brother and a Dirge of Cerberus tshirt for the other.

The Zombie one said "Zombie Hunter" on the front and then "Blades don't need reloading" on the back.
Then the Dirge of Cerberus shirt just said "Hail Weiss" on the front in big text.

They're twins, so they share clothes, except for pants cause one is more muscular, the other skinnier, so I try to make shirts that will be like a gift for that ONE twin and cause while they both like the same things they have a few other things that are unique to each. So I am going to make another shirt for each of them maybe.

I got fleece for the blankets I'm making them too: skulls for ZombieTwin, appliqued suede Owls on brown fleece for SkinnyTwinnie(he looks birdlike, what can I say?

What about a cellphone beanbag? I just found one here: http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/cellphone/9d5f/ but I'm sure it would be easy to make one yourself.

My son is eleven and starting to get to that age where he doesn't really appreciate handcrafted items anymore.  He's taking guitar lessons and he's really into music, when I saw this on ebay I knew I had to make it for him Smiley  Might help some of you others who have tween boys out there Smiley

(Edit:  this is not my picture or my project I snagged the picture from ebay because the url was too long!)

[ But he lost his dad last month so I want to help them have a good Christmas this year. Any ideas are welcome.]

For my friend who lost her son this year I made a bunny (her request , but you can make a bear  or any other kind of stuffy) out of one her sons sweaters, and this has meant so much to her she carries it with her through her house...
It was a manly sweater and came out really sweet but masculine looking.
Hope this helps

I'm making a super hero cape for my 4 year old nephew. There's a free tutorial available from thelongthread.com

I'm thinking about making a cool guitar strap for my little brother, I could also make one for my dad.

Another idea I had was piecing together plaid and solid flannels to make scarfs, seemed pretty easy and useful.

For my husband I have no idea yet as far as handmade. I'll have to keep thinking, he's always such a tough one to shop for.

There's also a cool box bag tutorial available at dragoknit.blogspot.com for guys who travel a lot or want to keep organized in a small apartment or dorm.
