Yummy Sushi and other things

Yummy Sushi purse
I like to call this the "yummy sushi purse". Yes, that is a Buffy reference. No, I don't like sushi, but I thought this fabric was too cute to resist.

In other sewing news, I also decided it was time to replace my koi fish wallet/ purse as it was practically falling apart. So I made this:

I have just a little bit of this fabric left, but was able to make one more purse/wallet, and can probably get at least 1 more scene from it.

Here's a few other new purses:

Kitty in the Patch - update

kitten in the pumpkin patch

All the pieces have been arranged and heat set to the backing fabric. I started doing some of the edging this morning. I have to admit I was a little scared to start edging the individual applique pieces. It's not something I have done before and I was sure I was going to totally mess up my project. But it turns out to be not so bad. So far I have all the kitties done and have started on the pumpkins. Then I had to go to work. Stupid work.
