Free Project Friday: Your Bento Box

We weren’t sure when we posted the poll how many sewers would vote for the bento box from Stash Happy: Patchwork over the sewing kit, but it looks like the answer is most of you! We were so impressed with the overwhelming vote for the bento that we decided to upload it today instead of next week. Stitch up your own version this weekend, and join us on a trip through the Internet to look at other bentos for inspiration on what to eat while you sew:

-Lunch in a Box is one of the most popular bento-focused blogs.

-The Just Bento Cookbook is a useful guide to making bento meals. What a wholesome bento on the cover!

-But what’s a bento meal without a large helping of fun?! Face Food is definitely a book where craft and food collide.

-Our favorite Jenny Doh chronicles many of her bentos in her Bento Love posts on Crescendoh. Mmm…spinach crepes.

-Or if you have a lot of time, check out some of the bentos on Flickr, where more than 80,000 photos have been tagged with “bento.”

Ok, so you’re probably hungry now…and hungry for the free project! The instructions can be found right here. And there’s one pattern piece for you here.

Happy sewing and eating this weekend!
