As soon as I saw these sushi patterns at Sublime Stitching, I immediately thought of Tia because she love sushi. I used a bright blue to match the blue on the bag for the cat's collar and the chopsticks.
Also, I tried to make the sushi pieces look realistic, but since Tia is the only one I see on a regular basis who enjoys sushi and would know how to make it look authentic, I certainly couldn't ask her and had to figure it out myself. Hopefully it is accurate! Even though the white embroidery floss I picked out was a pain in the butt to work with (very slippery!) it stands out nice on the off-white fabric, so I'm glad I picked it for the rice.
