fish to sushi amigurumi

Everyone seems to love sushi.
My youngest son and his girlfriend
would eat it daily if they could 
so when I saw this pattern
it made sense that I make it for them.

But this sushi and fish are slightly different.
Inside the fish is a sushi, they actually transform. 
Cute eh?
 Here is a pic of the sushi in the middle of 
transforming.

 I found that making the pieces themselves were easy,
but putting them together was a bit fiddly.
Also it's not easy to push the sushi into
the fish and vice versa.  
You really have to put some effort into it.
But it's such a unique pattern
that I think it was well worth the effort.

MollieMakes vegetables (Craft Book Challenge)

A while back I found a wonderful vintage bag
at my local thrift shop
and ever since then I have used it as my market bag.
But I've always wanted to gussy it up a bit and
when I saw issue 5 of MollieMakes mag
I knew how I would do it.

My market bag
I also wondered what else I
could make with these cute veggies.
Then I started to think ahead to
spring when I could start planting
my garden and I came up with these
garden markers.

Pretend that the apples are lovely garden dirt.

 I used chopsticks because I have a lot of them.
I'll have to make more with tomatoes, beans, etc.

The patterns were really easy and quick to make.
I subscribe to the emagazine
because here it is about a third of the price
of the printed version.

I've called this a craft book challenge item 
despite the fact that it came from a magazine.
So for me, at least,
I'm including magazines and books
in both digital and print form.
