Hello all!

I made these items for the Science IS Art! swap.  The first is a messenger bag with an anatomically correct human heart (or at least, as close to anatomically correct as I could get with a hook and yarn  Smiley).  I free-handed the entire thing, but it is mostly just single-crocheted.  The second item is a DNA moleclule.  I found the pattern on the internet, but it seems to have been taken offline.

Here's the pics!

The messenget bag:


This is the interior.  I lined it with fabric - looks like blood!  Shocked  Cheesy


And here's the DNA:


a different angle... The middle base pairs are black and white (the black kind of fades into the background)


Comments and criticism are appreciated.  Thanks for lookin'!  Cheesy

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME! If you can find the pattern again for the DNA, I'd love to have it. Smiley Great job on both! (And you're right, that fabric DOES look like blood!)

Love it!  Great work! 

I've seen knitted DNA online and wanted to make one in crochet, but never got around to it.  I love yours!

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

Thanks for finding the pattern!  I couldn't find if again for the life of me and thought it had been taken offline.

Thank you all for the comments!  Cheesy
