Felt Lunch Bag
This Felt Lunch Bag will make kids excited to pack their lunch and get ready for an exciting day at school. It is a perfect place to carry your special Bento box. You can let the kids help you cut out the trim. This is also a great beginning sewing project for tweens and teens.
Trivia: Bento or packed lunches, can be traced back as far as the fifth century, when Japanese leaving their homes to till their fields, hunt, fish, or even wage war carried food with them to eat on the go.
