How to Make a Sushi Plush Toy
Brightly colored felt is used to make all the ingredients for a hand rolled sushi plush toy. Depending on the age of the child, the roll can be permanently sewn together or can be closed with Velcro to allow for different ingredients in the future.

My mother and I love to spoil my brother's daughter with loads of gifts. It's not quite in our budget to always buy her the latest trends in toys so we love to make our own renditions. Here is a homemade sushi plush toy. If you choose to seal with Velcro, you can unwrap the roll and make it more "ingredients" in the future! :)
Total Time: 1 Hour
Yield: 1 Sushi Plush
- 1 piece black felt 6" X 6" (I opened up shoulder pads where black felt lives)
- 1 piece white felt 6" X 5 1/2"
- 1 piece green felt 6" X 2 1/2" for cucumber
- some cotton
- 2 pieces 2" black Velcro
- needle and thread
- sushi rolling mat (optional)
- If you're taking black felt from inside of old shoulder pads like I did, open them up and sew the two black triangles together to make your 6 X 6 "seaweed" sheet square.
- Fold the piece of green felt and sew up the side and one end.
- Using a pen or chopstick, turn the green felt inside out.
- Put the cotton around the stick and stuff it into the green felt tube. Sew up the end.
- Place the green roll on the white "rice" felt on the black "seaweed" felt. Roll! If you have a sushi rolling mat, you can use it for this part for fun. If not, just roll like a normal person! ;)
- If you want to be able to open up the sushi roll in the future and add other felt "ingredients," secure the sushi roll with Velcro. Otherwise, sew it up and you're set!
