Sushi.

First, thank you for the all the compliments on the felt food in the past few posts. Now on to today's food.

I don't like sushi. It's not because I haven't given it a (semi) fair chance either. I have, and I just don't like it. It has more to do with the texture than the actual flavor. But I've eaten at many a sushi restaurant. In college, I would tag along with my friends and happily drink sake or Sapporo and eat tempura. But I do find sushi aesthetically quite pleasing. It's an art form. One that had to be recreated in felt.

I used this pattern from Sweetie Pie Bakery on etsy.

I'm not 100% happy with the finished project. This has everything to do with my sloppy stitching and stuffing and nothing to do with the pattern. I want the rolls to lay flat, but they don't.

But I absolutely love the ginger and wasabi. I also made the tray, sauce dish, and chopsticks.

The pattern is, again, extremely detailed and well-written. It also comes with instructions to make a tea set, an orchid plant, and pillows. I decided to just stick with the food, but know that those would be adorable as well. I think that a set of play food - a breakfast, a donut box, a sushi set would make a really great gift for a toddler or preschooler or even an older kid. Even after if you purchase a pattern and buy the supplies, it's a fairly inexpensive gift that can be created fairly easily.

So glad to know there's someone else out there not totally smitten with sushi - I, too, much prefer tempura.

And your felt food is adorable! I think my favorite is the bacon with the pipe cleaner inside! ;-)

I have a felt sushi and dim sum kit that I am happy to send to you - I won't use it, but I think that the destash market would be a little small.

Let me know!
