So this is how I spent my weekend
If you are not familiar with bento boxes, they are traditional Japanese meals served usually as a packed lunch but I styled mine after one you would find in a Japanese restaurant:
Clockwise starting from the top left hand corner we have seaweed salad with sesame seeds, steamed potstickers and eggrolls, rice with nori flakes and a vegetables (carrots, cucumber, and a lime), four sushi rolls, and in the center a little wasabi and pickled ginger.
Everything can be removed and rearranged (even the red felt boxes can come out form the larger black box)
close up the the sushi
I had a lot of fun making this. The bento box itself was the hardest since I had never attemped felt boxes before. But the sushi is the most fun just because you roll it up like you would a real sushi roll. Now it gets packed away until my daughter is old enough to play green tea time with it!
