I made this amigurumi heart two years ago for a "favorite movie" swap.  Her favorite movie was Fight Club, and I loved the part where the main character found a bunch of anatomy magazines from the fifties in his basement written in the first person:  "I am Jack's diseased Liver", "I am Jack's swollen tonsils"... this is Jack's Broken Heart.
The swap partner loved it, then flaked.  Go figure  Undecided

The heart is freehand-ed out of acrylic yarn I got from a thrift store blanket.

This is AMAZING. (I would guess your swap partner got intimidated!!) I have a friend who is part of a roller derby team, her derby name is Medula Oblongata (for Jack's Lack of Self Control) -- if she were a closer friend I would try something like this!!

That's a sad story, I'm sorry your swap partner flaked. You're a very talented crocheter! I love the really unique crocheted items I see on here--hearts and eyeballs and insects, oh my!

LOL That is awesome!  "Fight Club" is, hands down, my favorite movie.  "I am Jill's Nipple".  Now that would make for some funny crocheting.   Tongue
