I hate this saying, but some people do believe that when life throws you a lemon, you should make lemonade. This is indeed the case for Becky Stern and her plush femur. Strange, yet creative.

Surprisingly cuddly, it is made from fuzzy polyester fur and fleece. Her other anatomical projects include an embroidered MRI slice.
