Bored with bookbindings? How about a nice handbag instead?

Joan, who is 55 and from Manchester, has peripheral arterial disease, and as a result of this condition she will need to have her lower left leg surgically removed. Rather than let her discarded leg become medical waste, Joan is now on the hunt for a designer willing to turn her dream into a reality. She took her request to Sewport.com who have mocked up potential designs of the handbag and are hoping to connect her with designers willing to work with human skin. Joan’s budget is £3,000 to secure her personalised accessory, and she is hoping for a medium-sized bag with a short strap.

if it were the whole leg might have squeezed a rifle case out of it ... as it is, maybe a ornamental holster would be a better fit

Use it to make a stock.

Make a big stew and invite relations around for a meal.

Following day, Email them with the details of how you made the stock.

Don't expect to get many Christmas cards this year.

Maybe she should have used the skin to put over her prosthetic limb

Tribble,

Was going to look at that, but the site threw this at me.

No, I would not.

And the configure Preferences option looked as if it was getting too nosey.

But, that aside, My second choice for using a spare limb would be the keema.

One NEVER asks what is in the keema.
