Yesterday I decided to try my hand at making a reversible furoshiki.The dimensions are 21 inch by 21 inch which is large enough to cover a two tier bento box (medium size). I used two pieces of fabric each 5/8th of a yard and trimmed them to 22" by 22". The project cost me about $7.00 to complete and encouraged me to pull out the old sewing machine. After a little dusting, maybe I'll be inspired to repair a few garments before putting the old girl back in the closet. :)

I apologize for the long absence from blogging but it's been a very busy school year. I have continued my committment to creating bentos everyday but have not had time to photo document. Walking through Borders the other day, look who I found looking up at me. She is an adoreable sushi bento girl. She is part of a new Borders collection. They look like paperchase made specifically for Borders. She has a little hashi set that includes, spoon, fork and chop sticks. The bag is bright with sakura design. She will be a nice addition to my Back to School gifts from me to me. I need something to keep me motivated year after year. Eleven years teaching middle school students, that's alot of packed lunches.
