Lunch kit

I'm converting my daughters to the bento box pleasure.
Daughter #1 chose one picnic bento box, that is a rather large one, because she loves salad for her lunch.
So I thought she could need a lunch kit.

Thanks to the knots on the side, the bag can expand as necessary.

I made a little bottle holder, like the ones I saw in Australia.
Both items are interfaced with some insulating material, upcycled from some package I received.

I found the insipiration for the place mat in the Summer 2011 Stitch special issue.
The leaf is in fact a pocket to hold the fork and knive. It can be wrapped around itself.

All items are made with upcycled material from my stash.

Oh my gosh! You should be selling those! Every year I search high and low for a decent lunch box when school starts back that's pretty but doesn't look like it's for little kids. I love that!

You ARE clever! And your rose looks lovely a few posts back. Great sewing results as usual.

I love Bento and your lunch kit is so beautiful. It's very Japanese too!

I confirm that the lunch kit is perfect! It made strong impressions on my colleagues :p The only problem is the jealous man who would like just the "set de table" in order to make a couple kit and so impress friends while at picnic :p
