⇒ Do not put any stuffing into the tail, will prevent it from keeping it rolled up

Seaweed wrap:

2 pcs:
Pc #1: measure how much you need to wrap your shell. (this will be thinner than #2)
Pc #2: measure how much you need to wrap your rice.


  • Pin and sew the head, body and tail to the rice first.
  • Attach top part of limbs to the bottom of shell.
  • Glue gun the seaweeds, then attach white limb bands.
  • Use embroidery thread to embroider the closed eyes.
  • Cut 2 small ovals of pink felt and glue gun near the eyes
