  • How to make a sushi plushie. Squid To Sushi - Step 1
    Step 1

    I've done my best to create a template.
    If you have any problems send me a message and I can email it to you.

    You can also just alter/use the sushi-fish template by Cat Morley.
    The body is a little thinner than her fish body and there's tentacles..

I'm so on the same page :)

After trying the now famous fish-to-sushi-plushie myself I've had the idea of another turn-inside-out-plushie in my head for months.
Haven't come up with my own yet, but will make your squid as a study as well :) Thanks so much!
