I created this spicy tuna sushi roll pin in punchneedle embroidery, which is akin to an ancient rug hooking technique on a smaller scale. I drew up the roll on weaver's cloth and punched out the design with hand-dyed embroidery floss to create the avocado and tuna.

I then mounted it on two layers of eco felt which is made of 100% post consumer plastic bottles.

The entire process takes about 2 and a half hours, but the result is a fun pin you'll treasure for always! No pattern was used, so no two will ever be exactly alike.

Sometimes when my husband and I are busy making props for theatre or working on something for the band we'll order some sushi delivery - and it's always a real treat! Yum Yum Yum, sushi makes me happy!

The overall size is 2" tall by 2 1/4" wide. The punch needle portion is about 1 1/2" tall by 1 3/4" wide.

**Made-to-Order - please allow five days until ready to ship!**

FYI:
Some elements may vary slightly depending upon availability of products needed to create the art. Each one is hand drawn (no pattern) so please allow for subtle differences. I endeavor to stick as closely to original as possible but sometimes thread shades will vary slightly - as most are hand dyed
This arrives in pretty eco-friendly packaging all set for gift giving, even if it's a gift for yourself!
