I used to make little rabbit bento bags from a Japanese pattern which I made in linen and lined them with Liberty of London fabric. I got the pattern from a Japanese book which was mad to work out and they were fiddly and expensive to make. That post (and the one it links to) however, are still probably the most commonly read ones I’ve ever written.
So, when my Wednesday sewing buddy, Sandra, showed me a much simpler one in one of her (French) magazines, we made it a project for our sewing sessions for two or three weeks – well, we chat for most of the time otherwise it would have probably only taken one session.
These are far less fiddly, larger and quicker to make all round.
They make good small project baskets.
I’m not sure they’re quite as cute though.
Even though they are much more practical.
I’m joining in Kate and Gun’s ScrapHappy day because, although they are fairly large scraps, the linen and lining are left over from other projects and not new.
(I mean the fabrics are fairly large scraps, not Kate and Gun 😉 )
Have a look at Kate’s post for a list of all the participants and, if you like making things from scraps (doesn’t have to be fabric) we’d love for you to join us.
