Well I decided to post this here because its not a toy and didn't seem to fit in the other categories very well.

I just completed a "Fun with Felt" swap and as part of that swap I made some felt sushi!  I LOVE the way it turned out and would really appreciate some feedback!

Little side note -- I made the box as well for the sushi and covered it with this cool black crushed velvet-like paper on the outside and a dark green handmade paper on the inside!


All four sushi rolls: 2x California Roll, 1x Fat roll, and 1x Salmon roe


Ikura -- Salmon Roe


California Roll


Futomaki -- Fat Roll
This one has avacado, egg, and carrot in it.


Tamago -- Egg


Maguro -- Tuna


Toro -- Fatty Tuna


Ebi -- Shrimp


Ginger and Wasabi


A Fortune Cookie...


...with removeable fortune.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I also made a few other fun things for the felt swap.  First a pair of newborn baby booties.  I altered the pattern from Heather Bailey's website.  Here is the link:  http://www.heatherbaileydesign.com/Booties.html



And lastly, I made a cat teaser toy using a dowel, some ribbon, a fuschia jingle bell, lots of glue and some beautiful wool felt.  I used a template from MarthaStewart.com for the leaves that can be found here:

Oh and I fixed the stupid wrinkle at the tip of the green leaf after the picture was taken:



Anyway that's about it!

Snazzlecraft,

The sushi is again quite amazing!  What did you use for the rice?  Is that the same material as towels?

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

I love the sushi, although when I try and replicate I will be doing mainly vegetarian sushi, and those little girls shoes are adorable.  I have a little boy and I keep thinking it is only a matter of time before I make him start crossdressing so I can use all thee cute shoes and dress ideas I have...Poor kid;)

I love my life, my hubby, my sons, and my 2 crazy dogs!  Isn't life grand?

Well first off thanks for clicking "This Rocks!!", it would be my first ever!!  And the only reason I didn't place it in the fiber arts category is because my mom was a fibre artist and it was much more artsy and lovely than these little crafted things. Tongue

Yes it is terry cloth!  I saw someone else online that had done it that way and I loved the way it looked!

1) the sushi is cute!
2) those booties you made are WAY cuter then the ones you got the patern for.  Makes me want to make a pair.... just wish I knew what I was having....  sort of...
3) the cat teaser is adorable.

I love it all! The sushi looks super yummy. Cheesy

The cat toy is really cute, too, but I would hate to let my cat anywhere near it personally.

That is amazing!  I love that your used terry cloth for the rice.  It looks so perfect! 

Those baby shoes are the most adorable felt shoes ever!!
