We had lunch bags last year, Actually, we probably still have them, but they’re in a box somewhere in the basement. So when I bought our little bento-style lunch kits, I needed something to put them in. And bags that could be thrown into the wash seemed just about right.
I used the pattern from this tutorial but didn’t bother with oilcloth. I had these old, green curtains (just call me Fräulein Maria) which had ties on the top. To make sure they were all different– we can’t have Owen and Moriah mixing up their lunches!– I put other fabric panels in two of them.
It was just the easy project I needed right now. My mom, on the other hand, agreed to make doll clothes.
I’ve been reading some backyard poultry books my friend Kathie passed along. The Luttmans’ Chickens in Your Backyard: A Beginner’s Guide makes me think poultry will be messier than I thought. Who was I kidding? Next up: ABC of Poultry Raising.
