Felt Sushi: Maki Rolls


12 strangers are looking at me. It is silent and we are sitting in a circle. The young girl next to me steadily bites her fingernails. When a man in his fifties encouragingly smiles at me, I finally start talking. Slowly first. Later I just let go. “Hi. My name is Jana. My doctor send me to see you. This is actually very difficult for me.” I take a deep breath before I am able to continue: “I do not consider me being a Sushi Addicts Annonymous. I just…” My lips start trembling and my left eye twitches unnaturally. “I just L-O-O-O-V-V-V-E-E Sushi.”

Parts of this story are fiction, parts are real. I guess you figured out already which one is which. 🙂 Anyway, I did some sewing again. Surprised? 😉 Inspired by one of our frequent visits to Etsu, one of the best (maybe THE best) Japanese restaurants in Toronto, I decided to make some felt Sushi for Little P.’s toy shop. I found a Maki Roll tutorial with pattern here. The rolls are really easy to make and it took me maybe 30 minutes for 3 of these cuties from start to end. The link above will direct you to Tao of Craft, where Carrie provides even more Sushi tutorials (e.g., for Nigiri and Toro). Thank you, Carrie!

Currently it is very difficult to get some Maki Rolls at my son’s toy store. For some reason they are sold out all the time. Do I need to say more…? 😉
