Revenge of the Sushi...With Yarn!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I am SO excited because my entry for the Threadknits.com contest is FINALLY finished and submitted! The contest is open to knitters and crocheters and you have to make something based on a t-shirt design from Threadless.com (some of the coolest t-shirts around FYI). Here's the design I chose, "Revenge of the Sushi":
(Photo from Threadless.com)

The one thing that concerned me about this project was how I was going to get these little guys to actually hold each other up but in the end it hit me: Make a sushi mobile!


So what do you think?

There are so many amazing entries already submitted but I sure would love to have a shot at the prizes. lol But even if I don't win anything, this was a lot of fun to do and I've been wanting to enter some creative type contests and really push myself out of my comfort zone this year so here's one thing I can mark off my list! :D If you would like to see my entry along with the other entries, you can check out my entry on the Threadknits site! Wish me luck y'all! :D

Have a great day everyone and I'll see you soon for another Friday Night Fab Five! :D

Oh WOW, Maggi! That is the coolest thing ever!!! I LOVE it. They do look too good to eat - maybe that's why the little roll looks so angry that you might be chomping on him soon. Can anyone vote for you? I think this is too clever. :) Congrats on a job well done!!!

Holy Crap *chuckle*

When I saw this link on Twitter I went and looked at all the others too and can safely say, hand on heart yours is without a doubt the best entry on there. If you don't win it will be a travesty. I'm still amazed and gobsmacked that you did this all just from a t-shirt picture. It's like my brain wont comprehend it! A.MAY.ZIIIIIING!

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

hi maggi!

I thought of you when I saw this on ebay. I think you mentioned liking the headband on a girl on the Bachelor. I don't think this is just like it, but it might be similar:
