Instructables
After looking on BoingBoing, I noticed a "Fetus Cookie Cutter" and was instantly amazed. For a while, I've been enthralled with the fetus shape and pattern. Then I took a look at my jumpdrive; it was naked. It had no housing. They build things so cheap these days. So, I decided to make a Fetus Jumpdrive!

Step 1: Get the baby making materials.

Picture of Get the baby making materials.
You'll need a couple of things, most of which you probably already have! All of the materials are super cheap.

Pink Felt - At Joann Fabrics, an 8 by 11 piece of pink felt is 25 cents.

Black Felt - You won't need a full square, just some scrap will do. If you don't have any, sharpie?

Polyfill - Used for stuffing. If you don't have any, you can use some stuffing from an old pillow or stuffed animal which reminds you of your ex.

Heat n' Bond (optional) - It is mainly used for attaching fabrics (like the eye) to others. It's kind of like an iron on transfer. If you don't know how to use this, ask the people at Joann's (where I learned). Honestly, you don't really need it. It just makes it easier. You could use thread and needle to sew on the eye.

Thread - Preferably pink.

Needle - Preferably pointy.

Pins - Preferably not the ones used for dissections.

Hot glue and gun - It's the easy way out.

Old Jumpdrive - Preferably without the housing (case) it came in. Those things break off too easy. If for some unfortunate reason your jumpdrive is still in tact, just remove the casing by sliding down a screwdriver in the side (careful!), and popping it off.

Iron - If using heat n' bond

What would make this even better is if you used some of that red plastic goo thats used on fabrics, and made an umbilical cord, OR dunked certain parts in brown and red. Make a bit more morose!
Haha I love this! My friend peter and I love dead baby jokes so I think I'll make him this for christmas!  i might take the flashdrive out of the fetus' butt though and leave it a stuffed fetus. =]

p.s. how many babys does it take to paint a wall?
Whats worse than a dead baby in a mailbox?.... a dead baby in a thousand mailboxes

to answer your question.... depends on how hard you throw them :D how many babies does it take to shingle a house?
This is somewhat disturbing. Somewhat.

Aww... Just somewhat?
geekdude5 years ago
why would you spend the time to make something like this? are you hopeing to spark up awkward conversations about abortion?
Doctor What (author)  geekdude4 years ago
Nope, I just like creeping people out.  The fun conversations about abortion are an unexpected bonus.

oh my god oh my god OH MY FREAKING GOD!!! XD DEAD BABIES!!!! i love this. great instructable. and i'm not talking about quality really, mostly just the fact that you taught me how to make a fetus to hang in my locker at school... :D great job!!

look I'm really sorry but this is downright inhumane. If you made one of a deer fetus and sold them, PETA would be all over you for it, so why are human fetuses any different?
Doctor What (author)  C17H19NO35 years ago
Because PETA believes humans aren't animals. We're disposable!
mhmmm. Of course this planet belongs to 'nature' and not us. They forget that we are part of nature....
(removed by author or community request)

didnt PETA forget to feed a few hundred animals? and what does PETA mean? people eating tasty animals?
because human fetuses look badass and because no self respecting person gives a shit about what peta says cool instructable
clark C17H19NO35 years ago
umm, its a joke...
I had to register purely to comment on this. I think this is absolutely brilliant, and any naysayers can stick it. It's witty, it's clever, entirely well done, and I love it. If I had any sewing skills, I'd make a zillion of these and hand them out to people. I love it! Fantastic job. =)
I totally agree.

Thank you for the comment! And thank you for registering for instructables!

Creative...I don't want to know where you got this idea

Hmm .. tasteless and inventive. I like it. But I think mine will have a USB-extension cord protruding from its belly instead ]:)
Doctor What (author)  omnibot5 years ago
After I made it and showed it to a couple people, I got that same response! I might put that as an afterword...
Do it.
nice!!
:-\ I don't like it. While it isn't quite inhumane, as others have said, I find it incredibly disturbing that there is discussion on how one would do this with a real fetus. I assume those are jokes, but even so, I find them in very poor taste. The whole thing just felt creepy to me.
Doctor What (author)  Lithium Rain5 years ago
Bwa ha ha! The shock value is the best part. Your assumptions would be correct about jokes. But if you notice, only five out of the thirty eight, soon to be thirty nine, were about the subject, and none went into detail. I agree. It is completely and utterly tasteless, so are many, many other jokes. But then again, other people on the site, myself included, could have taken it to a whole other level... When it was mentioned on gizmodo (not a big mention, but enough of a mention), people got quite a stir (if you can call 28 comments a stir)! Some thought it to be gross, and make tons of comments about eating, and computer related fetus humor, with a couple ranging on the "super duper tasteless". Ones which I won't mention. Some thought it a nice time to voice their views on abortion. Which was strange. But some thought differently. And I quote: "As a developmental biologist, I find this flash drive to exemplify and glorify our developmental beginnings. Everyone should have one of these to remind them that they too once underwent gastrulation." And if it felt creepy, congratulations! That was the point.

I wonder if the same techniques can be used on a real fetus.
Sure, why not? Saves you a lot of sewing.
Skor459 arienh45 years ago
Saves you a lot on condoms and baby supplies too.
your downright aweful. Great idea...now to find a dead baby
Doctor What (author)  iain0101005 years ago
How would you attain a fetus? Vaccum?

"For a while, I've been enthralled with the fetus shape and pattern" ...That has got to be the creepiest thing I've ever read...
Doctor What (author)  aman095 years ago
Why's it so creepy? I find it to be very interesting. I'm thinking of making shirts with the fetus on it.

First off, you actually made one. Second, you were proud of it. Third, you were brave enough to instruct it. Do you work for the government?
Doctor What (author)  rc jedi5 years ago
Yes. See that blinking light just to the right of you, behind your shoulder? That's me.
LOL its kinda embarising to have in public LOL
LOL.

Nice job my friend.

I love how all your pics look like sonograms xD Make at least ONE of them b&w so it looks like a real sonogram :D
BTW, fav'd and 5 stars for creativity.
Doctor What (author)  Labot20015 years ago
Yay!
I'm totally doing this - but with a usb extension cord to make it look like an umbilical cord :D
hahah wow. you stole my idea. i was goin to get one fo those 5 dollar baby dolls at the toy department and put the usb in the belly button, then use a usb extension. lol
jongscx5 years ago
If you cut it apart, there's a chance you'll be able to use the pieces to recreate any other type of stuffed-flashdrive you want... but only after a few years of research...
Wow. I is despeechified!

disturbing in a pedobear sort of way. a usb in another part of the body would less disturbing

i agree with UGUY...it looks like its pooping knowledge....although if your jumpdrive is poopey....iguess that would make sense....

Shouldn't the thumb drive be in the head as if educating the fetus?
