Once in a while, I go through the pile trying to make some sense of it all and on a good day manage to come up with this
and this More teacups *grin* They are snack mats - smaller than placemats but bigger than coasters.. hahah I got the pattern from a Japanese Zakka book in my collection. They are very easy and superfast to whip up and a good way to get some of those scraps out.
What do you do with your scraps?

I've made 6 placemats with matching coasters (not pictured) and combined the Trefle print with some sweet peach coloured Japanese cotton. I'm planning to make some other kitchen-y sweetness with the remaining fabric.
What have you been up to??Pin It

Since coming to Japan, I have to prepare bento for my girl and hubby almost everyday. We are also used to preparing bento ahead of time for when we travel. It's economical and we get to sit in a park somewhere and enjoy family lunch together.
So, it would be obvious that I'd make bento bags to keep all these bento. My first bento bag was a copy of a bento bag I bought at 100yen shop. It was part of a set for my girl when she entered shogakko - primary school. It took me a lonnnnnnngggg time to figure out the size and pattern - even then I made it a tad small *roll eyes*
But I'm happy to report that since then my bento bags have evolved. I have a whole, well at least half range of bento bags collection.
