theme: "Eats"

My inspiration for the “Eats” trade was sushi!

Crochet sushi. So cute!


I wanted my paper sushi to have a likeness to sushi. I could have used colored paper to replicate sushi rolls, but I thought it would be more fun to make abstract versions.

I hand cut ovals to represent sushi rolls and triangles to represent fish tails. I had been collecting random items for months. Anything from takeout chopstick wrappers to Arizona Green Tea labels. The fabric sushi man is something I found in a co-workers garbage. The black electrical tape wrapped around the center brought the collection together and represents seaweed wraps. I cut the end off of toothpicks to make mini chopsticks and paper punched circles to look like fish eggs.

The one with the panda is my FAV! He’s from a chopstick wrapper. And the button is a random thing I found at a fabric store for like $0.08!
