DIY Sushi Baby Shower Gift Tutorial

I’ve seen these cute Sushi Baby Shower Gifts on Pinterest for a few years and now I had the chance to make one for a friend. A couple of years ago I made some sweet Cupcake Onesies for a friend of mine when she was pregnant with her baby girl.

I am so excited to finally make the boy version! Sushi Onesies! A friend of mine is anxiously waiting for the arrival of her first grandchild, so I hopped at the chance to make this cute gift for a boy!

This craft is super easy to make. In my version, I wanted to buy a cute outfit instead of just onesies or washcloths like the other Pinterest versions. So I bought a three-piece outfit and socks.

It included one long sleeved onesie, one short sleeved onesie, a pair of pants and six-pack of matching socks. I used white felt to cover the onesies and pants since the outfit I bought was blue. Let me show you how I made it~

Sushi Baby Shower Gift


Easy Baby Sushi DIY


Fold onesie for gift

Start by folding a onesie in three-quarter sections to make a narrow, 2-inch strip.

fold onesie for roll

wrap felt over onesie

Measure and cut the white felt to fold over the onesie strip.

add strips of felt for sushi color

With the open edge side down, cut small strips of orange, yellow and light green felt and pin to one end of the white felt.

roll onesie and secure with rubber band

Start rolling the end with the colored felt strips, holding tightly as you roll. Add a rubber band to the roll to keep it together snugly.

Pin felt for outside of sushi

Cut a strip of black felt to go around the outside of the roll. Pin the ends of the black felt together with straight pins. Repeat with the other two parts of the outfit.

To make the fish sushi roll:

onesie fish sushi

wrap socks for sushi

Cover two pair of socks with white felt. Fold the ends inward and pin together. Add a fish from the sea set on top. Cut a thin strip of black felt and wrap it over the fish and pin the ends underneath.

Place the other 4 pairs of socks in the takeout box and cover with beige felt. Add the chopsticks to the takeout box.

Cut the edges of a sheet of dark green felt into points to look like seaweed. Place the dark green sheet of felt on the bottom of the tray. Add the sushi rolls, fish roll and takeout box, cover with clear wrap and your done!

Who wouldn’t want one of these sweet gifts? The Sushi Baby Shower Gift is sure to be a hit at any baby shower!

    This…is one of the cutest things I have ever seen! I love sushi, and if I have a baby shower anytime soon, I am definitely going to do this. I recognize that little pink stingray too, we had the same 10 set sea creature collection, which we have since passed on to my baby nephew :)
