Sushi anyone?

This is my latest handiwork which I spent (altogether) half a day doing. Do you like it? I took this with me on my travels recently but came back with them still in their packaging. Why is that so? Well, silly me couldn't find the needle in the packet (excuses excuses). I thought it'd give me something to do while I was in Ireland but I read a lot instead. So no time for sewing. :P

I wouldn't say I made a great job of it, and it's not helped by the fact that the patterns used for cutting out the shapes weren't exactly accurate. I did a bit of amendments here and there and was relatively pleased with the end result. The tray was supposed to be round but the pattern for the sides were not long enough such that it allowed the strips to be wrapped around the base to form a perfect circle. It was only while I was sewing it that I realized the fault. But it was apparently too late and I wouldn't have had enough material to make changes.

This set of sushi is not made for me.. it was made specially for a friend and I hope she likes it. :)
