This is BEAUTIFUL! I love it!. Don't let others get you down. Just because they don't like it....I would defiantly wear this....I have in my head that I want to make one for myself when I get the time.....but 5 months...now that is making it hard for me to get on the wagon there.
Is it for you to wear?
I think it is amazing...Good work!

No it wasn't hard...it takes a bit of getting used to to know the right pressure to use and just how much to fill but all in all it is easy. making the sushi rice s the main part...it has to be sticky..and you have to not eat it all as your making it (i kinda have a weakness) All you need is the roll. just lay down the rice in a layer and add in your goodies and roll. It is hard to explain but I am sure there are you tube tuts out there to get an idea. (I just watch the guys at restaurants and that)

I do have to say that it is much easier then getting spring rolls wrapped right Tongue

Give it a try...even if it looks funky it will taste great!

15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Toothy 2.0 on: July 23, 2008 06:17:14 PM
So a while back I posted about "Toothy" that i had made for my son. It was a tooth fairy pillow. I had just made the first one out of felt. Little did I know that he was going to play such a big part in plush play over at out house. needless to say Toothy is quite pilly and when I had to play tooth fairy the other night it was hard to get that little bugger of a tooth out and $ in without making a commotion (i was almost made)
Anyhow I decided to make one that was made of cotton instead so that Toothy would have a pal (I couldn't let the truth out of the bag the real reason why I wanted to make another one)
Anyhow I ended up making 4 different ones. they are really cute. Much cutter in person then in the picts.
I used vintage buttons for the eyes on them and some reused fabrics for the back pockets.
Anyhow here is my fave one.

The fabric that is the easyest to work with and the one that holds up the best is a mid weight cotton. Nothing fancy. As far as I can recall all my fabric is from the novelty / quilt sections (well actually the sale section but you know what I mean) they were just ones that have been in my stash but that I needed to use up.
Anyhow I just prewash them and iron before I sew but other then that I just wash them with my towels in the washer and pop them in the dryer. I guess if we were to have company or a special shing ding I would touch them up with an iron but or daily uses they are great right out of the dryer. I wash them At least once a week and have been using them for about 3 months now and they look good as new (aside from pasta sauce stains on my sons Tongue)

Ah I'm a miso cheater....I get the packets from the Japanese markets.....and just add tofu and some seaweeds. I'm a cheater but I found one I like so why mess with it right Tongue

Those are really cute. I love the fabric too! I think I will have to add these on my to make list for the winter.
Thanks for sharing.

OMG I would kill for that lamp....OK so maybe not kill but that is the best lamp ever....How come I can never find great lamps like that?
You painted it really nice...it looks great with the light on and everything....I'm envious!
20  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Train Applique Quilt on: July 16, 2008 04:04:41 PM
That is really cute. You did a great job.
yes it is common for 5 year olds to change their minds all the time. my son just turned 6 and you never know what is next. I figure when I make a quilt for him it is going to be something I like as well for when he tires of it. But really I think trains are a tride and trues thing that he will still love.
Great work!
