This piece was inspired by the merchandise over at www.iheartguts.com. They make happy little anatomy plushies in all sorts of fun colors.









I used this free egg pattern from crochetspot for the ovary, and made up the fallopian tube as I went. It took just over an hour to complete.

Here is the pattern:

Materials: Scraps of Yarn A and Yarn B, tapestry needle, polyester fiberfil, black embroidery floss, 12mm child safety eyes

Using a 3.75mm hook and worsted yarn, begin at the base of the fallopian tube.

Rnd 1: With A, Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook.
Rnds 2 - approx. 18: sc around until tube reaches desired length. Remember to stuff periodically every inch or so.
Rnd approx. 18 (pedal round): *sc in next st, sl st in next st then ch 3 and work 4 tr in same st*. Rep from * 3 times. After the last treble st of the third completed pedal, sl into the first ch 3 of the beginning pedal to close it off. FO, leaving a tail for sewing the tube to the ovary.

Ovary, with B (copy pasted from link above):

Round 1: ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook, place marker: 6 sc
Round 2: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc) around: 9 sc
Round 3: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc) around: 12 sc
Round 4: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc) around: 15 sc
Round 5: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc) 3 times, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc: 19 sc
Round 6: sc in each sc around: 19 sc
Round 7: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc) 2 times, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc: 22 sc
Round 8 10: sc in each sc around: 22 sc
Round 11: (decrease, sc in next 6 sc) 2 times, decrease, sc in next 4 sc: 19 sc
Note: Fill egg with fiberfill while decreasing. [And don't forget to add the eyes and embroider the smiley.]
Round 12: (decrease, sc in next 2 sc) 4 times, decrease, sc in next sc: 14 sc
Round 13: decrease in each sc around: 7 sc
Finish off, weaving egg shut.

That's pretty neat but gross all in one... my child would love it!
I seen that green r my tear$ commented about your picture.... the brain bug is quite a gelatinous anus face brain sucker from Starship Troopers... My question is do you really like that thing? It looks soo nasty! Or am I just dirty minded? Ew!
Back to the ovary... I think I might try and make one too. The pattern looks pretty easy. If I do I'll let you know how it goes. Smiley

Good idea! Pickled ovary. And I'm sorry for your loss.

Haha, that's like the third time I've been asked that here. But JustKat is correct, it is the brain bug from the epic film Starship Troopers. It is called brain bug because it sucks out peoples' brains through a straw that comes out of that orifice in its face. I think it's cute.
