Sushi, Anyone?

Today was a very snowy, icy, icky day. I chose not to venture out and go to work. This gave me time to finish up some knitting projects including the Sushi Wallet. I saw this wallet years ago in the LionBrand catalog. Every so often I would look it up on their website and think about buying it. One day I walked in A.C. Moore and there was the Sushi Wallet by Coats & Clark! I had a 50% off coupon so I bought it! The yarn is bamboo and was extremely soft to work with. The wallet was a cinch to knit up. Those little sushi pieces were a bit of a pain because I had to change the colors very often but I got it done. The felting process took some time. I had to reset the machine 3 times until I got the desired effect. I let it dry for a few days pinned to a thick towel. Today was sewing day. I first sewed the sushi pieces onto the wallet. Then I had to put in the zipper. Since I'm not much of a sewer, I had no clue on how to do this. The directions were very clear but something wasn't right. I even looked on the internet on how to put in a zipper. When I looked at the printed directions that came with the kit, I never read the part that said, "Open zipper." Oh, now it makes sense. How did I miss those two words? I did it correctly and it looks great. Here are some pictures:

Wasabi, anyone?
