I made this sushi pillow for my little sister for Chirstmas one year. I've seen sushi pillows all over the internet, but they are mostly circle pillows with the sushi ingredients printed on the fabric. I wanted to make one with a variety of removable ingredients so that my sister could "customize" her sushi roll!

The main pillow is a big donut shape, so the pieces go all the way through and can be seen on either side of the pillow.

The pillow is made of flannel and felt, and it has tuna, salmon, cucumber, carrot, and avocado pieces.

UPDATE: I have posted the full step-by-step instructions for the Sushi Pillow here:

Thank you thank you thank you! I am hoping to make a full ible for it in the near future. When I make something the first time I just wing it in an incredibly disorganized fashion, so hopefully the second go-round I can be more organized. The pillow has apparently because incredibly popular with all the girls in my sister's high school!
