Cut out pattern for the Sushi Roll Rice from white felt, The Seaweed pattern from black felt, Carrot from orange felt and the Avocado from green felt.
Trim the edges of the "rice" with pinking sheers as to make a bumpy edge.

Roll the carrot piece and the avocado piece. Hold them together and roll the rice around them both. Make sure to keep the roll tight. Finally roll the Seaweed strip around the rice.

Secure the seaweed with a pin to ensure a tight roll while you stitch the side of the seaweed with black embroidery floss.
