getting ready for school: the lunch box

We still have a couple days before
school starts,
so we are getting ready!
The backpacks are still good,
but Miss C. needed a new lunch box.
This year I decided to make her one,
ever since I saw this tutorial at Pink Penguin,
I have been wanting to sew one.
So I did!

Isn't it just the cutest?

I used 2 Japanese prints (the snack fabric and the purple/blue flowers),
 some other quilting prints,
and some polka dot oil cloth.

More than 16 years ago, I spent 2 months in Japan,
and one of the things I brought back is
this cute bento box:

So I was very happy to sew my own,
well for Miss C.!

The inside is perfect to pack a sandwich, a fruit
and a drink.
With the oil cloth, it should be easy to clean
any "accident".

The closed top insures that no lunch will be lost!

Overall, it has been a great project,
the tutorial is easy to follow,
I might need to make one for me too,
after all one is never too old for a cute lunch box....
Now where am I going to go eat lunch?

Happy sewing!
