Last week, I hinted at a special collaboration I have been working on with one of my favorite fabric people. Today, I am super excited to announce that I have been working on some fun tutorials with Kelly of superbuzzy! As many of you know, I have been a huge superbuzzy fan for a long time, so I was honored to be able to create some free tutorials for all of you Japanese fabric fans. (Of course, any project where the postman shows up with a box full of Japanese fabric and accessories is a dream project in my book!)
For our first collaboration, we came up with an adorable Zakka Lunch Kit. The tutorial includes all of the instructions to make a bento bag (above) and a sandwich wrap that folds out to a place mat (below). The projects are beginner-friendly, but we’ve included some nice finishing details so that they will hold up against rough-and-tumble little ones and frequent trips through the washing machine. I know a lot of us are thinking green these days — so I love that these fabric bags and bento boxes help cut down on all of the lunch time trash. (It doesn’t hurt that the projects are seriously cute, too!)
After you sew up these projects, you may want to take a look through the superbuzzy shop. I am loving these mushroom clips and magnets! (I also heard a rumor that there might be some new Echino goodies!) Maybe you’d even like to try your hand at making cute bento-style lunches. superbuzzy has some cute bento books (in English!) that show you how. I was inspired to give it a try too. Here’s my little hedgehog sandwich:
We had so much fun putting this one together that we’re going to be making this a monthly thing. So I hope you’ll visit us again to see what we have in store for Halloween!
