Organ Study

And now for something completely different...

This is what I have been making over the past 3 weeks - organs!!


This is the heart made from fleece - complete with aorta and arteries


A pair of lungs - also made from fleece and a detailed trachea.


And a stomach...


Why all this?

A friend of mine is teaching, and she asked me to make these. 
I love these so much, I think I need to make another set for my kiddo when the time arrives...
... now I need to complete the kidneys and the uterus.

Enjoy,

  4. My daughter has Tetralogy of Fallot and is getting ready for her 4th open heart surgery. Is there any way you would be willing to share the pattern or give some directions on how you made them? Thank you.

  5. Thank you all for your comments and emails - I am very touched by the replies I am getting and the stories shared with me.
    I am working on the tutorial currently and will post it shortly - promise! They are really easy to make - 1 hour max. incl. tracing, cutting, stuffing and embroidering. Bear with me... I am currently planning a 'sewtogether' over here for making heart organ softies for the local children's hospital - this requires the pattern, so it'll be with you shortly.
