Approx. 1 yard of salmon pink colored cotton fabric (any cotton weave will do!)
Approx. 1/2 yard of black cotton fabric (a matching cotton weave was used in the photo)
Polyfil or pillow stuffing
Sewing machine or hot glue gun
For the salmon sashimi
Measure your baby’s length and shape a piece of salmon from top to bottom out of tracing paper.
Take the salmon pink fabric and layer twice (to make a top and bottom). Cut fabric.
Measure the elastic imagining your baby wearing the salmon as a backpack. Place the elastic between the 2 pieces of salmon in the desired place. Sew or hot glue the edges, inverted fabric, and elastic bands pinned between the layers and leave about 2” opening.
Invert the piece, and stuff with however much pillow stuffing you’d like! Sew or hot glue closed the 2” opening.
For the obi (black sash)
Cut a long rectangular piece of black cotton fabric and make a top and bottom. Again, leave a 2” opening and invert it so the edges are nice and neat. Then close the 2” opening shut by sewing or hot gluing the edges together.
