DIY Gifts: Baby Sushi Gift
One of the greatest inspirations in my life is my big brother. He has been a Designer for about eight years, but to me he has been designing since he left the womb. For example, when I was in elementary school, my brother would make my Halloween costumes. These were not just any Halloween Costumes; they were amazingly creative and elaborate and made me an instant hit during the playground parades. One year he made be a giant TV out of a cardboard box and my head was the picture. It was complete with a table, table cloth, remote control, and TV Guide. Everyone else was wearing those plastic costumes and a backless mask with a piece of elastic holding it on your face. Remember those? Keep in mind that this was years before the internet and before all these reality how-to shows… oh and did I mention he was about ten years old at the time?
The best way to describe my brother is that he is a cross between Macgyver and Martha Stewart. He made me this gift when he first found out he was going to be an Uncle, and I HAD to share it. I think the pictures speak for themselves. Besides the old sushi container and the chopsticks, he made everything else…the life like sushi design, the label, and the onesie (there were actually two onesies but one of them is packed in a box for future baby). He’s a genius!
