Love blood?!

These little blood samples make the perfect gift for the medic, student or phlobotomist in your life! Choose from making an ordinary sample of whole blood, or one that has been centrifuged to split out the plasma, buffy coat and erythrocytes. The centrifuged sample even has the blood constituents in the correct proportion - so it’s just like the real thing!

The ButterflyLove pdf Amigurumi Blood Sample knitting pattern gives you clear step by step instructions to make your own phlobotomist’s treat.
