I took a break from my classes and had fun with a request from my daughter. I made Insulated Bento Lunch Bags for Addie and George. Kerry had gotten them these Bento Boxes, but they did not fit in their lunch boxes. Bento boxes are a Japanese tradition. From preschool to the elders, they bring their home cooked meal packed in a Bento box.
The Pattern came from “Zakka Handmades” by Amy Morinaka. This book has so many cute little projects in it. This one just need some adjusting to the size to accommodate the size boxes Kerry had gotten.
When Kerry and Addie had visited me this past summer, Addie and I made a dress for Evie. It took a long time for Addie to pick out just the right fabric for this dress. I decided this would be the perfect fabric for Addie’s Bento Box. They were a hit with both of them!
