Scrappy Star Bento Bag for My Friend ☆ ミシンパッチワークでキラキラ星のお弁当バッグ作り ☆

You may recall those quilt-as-you-go scrappy star panels I was stitching earlier this month. Well, I made those panels into a bento bag (lunch tote) for a very good friend of mine who is currently recovering from health issues.  

先日ミシンキルティングしたパッチワークの表布2枚を使ってお弁当バッグ作りました。 現在体調を崩している友人に早く元気になってもらいたい❣との願いをこめて作ったプレゼントです。

As you can see, I chose cheerful and bright colors (mainly using Kokka's Irome collection) to lift her spirits up!


 I first machine-quilted these scrappy star panels then turned them into a bento bag (lunch tote).

表布はコッカさんの Irome (いろめ)シリーズの生地をメインに使ってミシンピーシング&ミシンキルティングしました。

The scrappy star block is from my original Scrappy Star Square Bag pattern, now available at my etsy shop.

今回使った星のパターンは、私のオリジナル作品 Scrappy Star Square Bag(キラキラ星のキルトバッグ)から。バッグのパターンはオンラインショップで発売中です(パターンは英語です)。

Free Japanese tutorial to make these bags are also available at Kokka fabric's website.

And the bento bag pattern is from my book, Zakka Handmades...


This lunch tote is a good size to store lunch, fruits, snacks, and a small drink inside to go out on a picnic on a beautiful day!



Besides the bag handles, I added detachable long straps to the bento bag so that it can be worn cross-body like this.

The bag was shipped out to my girlfriend with some candies and other goodies inside. I can't wish enough that my girlfriend recovers fully and quickly!!

Look! My scrappy star bento bag flew in to Grand Canyon, AZ, with the new owner all the way from Southern Cal, originally made by me in Tokyo!! So happy my friend is actually using my handmade bag and more than anything that she is recovering well! Yay♡
