Pattern Description:

This pattern is made to resemble a plush version of a delicious Salmon Roe (ikura) Gunkan style sushi! That is a type of sushi that is made from a ball of rice topped with a soft filling that is then wrapped in a sheet of nori seaweed to keep it all together.

This plush is made from fleece, so it's a great project for beginners and comes out looking especially smooth and soft. The project requires some skill in applique, but the pattern includes an entire section on how to sew the applique features in lots of different ways that will fit your skill level!

This pattern can be used for both personal and commercial use as long as you credit my website, :)
