Late Night Boy Toy


No, not THAT kind of boy toy.. perverts. I made this little monster toy for a shower a while back, and it all happened so fast I forgot to post it. The basketball in the monster's hand is NOT some sort of applique gimmick that places like Carter's and Circo insist on employing. Both parents are legitimately awesome basketball players, and the dad just graduated from UNC. You like how I slipped Duke Blue in there? heh. heh.

This is unfortunately the only picture I took of the Little Monster. Like I said, it happened pretty quickly and I finished it in the wee hours of the morning. Not exactly prime photo-op time. So I'm sad you can't see it, but my favorite part of this little guy is that snaggletooth. I did a satin stitch into a long triangle, but I don't have a fancy machine, so while I was holding the fabric with one hand, I had to perfectly move my stitch width selector with the other. I was sweating legitimate bullets as the rest of the face had already been embroidered and satin-stitched. But it came out perfect. Yay for me. Oh yeah, and yay for little C. He must have been a tiny little runt, because in that picture, Mom is 38 weeks pregnant. Some people!

She doesn't look pregnant at all! Especially since I saw the paper on her lap and thought that was a skirt at first, ha. LOVE the boy toy, especially the snaggle-tooth and eye patch...ps you kind of have a habbit of finishing things in the wee hours and needing to take pictures at showers! Just sayin' :)

Can we please start a petition or something to get them to design baby clothes that are just PLAIN and CUTE on the front, without some dorky tag? I mean, honestly.

Your ball, however, passes cute inspection.
