A good friend of mine is an OB/GYN finishing up her residency.  A few weeks ago she asked me if I'd be willing to crochet her a uterus that she and her fellow residents could practice emergency procedures on.  I took up her challenge.  Here's my end results:



I made the smaller one first, using a fellow craftster's post (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=392292.0) and link to a Swedish blog (http://elings.info/livmoder.html) which my browser was able to translate.  I modified a little bit, but it came out as expected. 



My friend was thrilled, but asked if I could make another, larger and less stuffed, one.  This one is completely my own pattern/free-formed. 



Close up of the tubes/ovaries:



I wanted this one to not be limited by the amount of stuffing (in case she wanted it more or less stuffed) so instead of sewing it closed I made a fetus (http://ramenneedles.blogspot.com/2011/08/fetus-in-jar-pattern.html?m=1) that fits nicely inside.

It's cool that your friend knew they could go to you for something like this. Well done! Smiley
