I wanted to craft something for my coworker in the lab that I work in. Given that our lab focuses on Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis research, I just had to include an angry, inflamed intestine somehow! So I decided to refurbish a bowl by sewing a cover representing an angry, hungry candy...wait for it...wait for it....bow[e]l! Bowl. Bowel. Get it? Cheesy

I made the intestinal villi out of angry red fabric. As you can see, I embroidered the words "hungry" and "bow[e]l" onto the outside rim.

I embroidered the outside of each of the villi as well to draw some emphasis to them. The bottom of the bowl is covered with white felt with the following message: "colonize me with candy." Because I want candy in my bowl...and bowel. Heh heh.

And naturally, I just had to include some bacteria colonizing the lumen and attached to the villi. After all, it is an angry inflamed intestine!

The bacteria were made with silver rings and beading wire. I stitched the bacteria onto the red fabric to attach them onto the villi or to the white piece of felt.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

Hilarious!  But do people actually want to EAT out of it? Wink
