Maranda’s storebought bento bag is by Ambitalia, which she bought at Spun in Ann Arbor, MI.
We found many bento bag-making tutorials online, here a few we liked:
For sewing a bento bag:
- Fast Fat Quarter uses several fat quarters to make a bento bag
- Textile Arts Center makes one from a single piece of fabric
- Very Shannon has great schematic drawings to make the whole process clear from the start
For knitting a bento bag: here’s the Pom Pom Quarterly pattern that started our conversation, Judoka. It comes in 3 sizes for whatever amount of yarn you happen to have available. I plan to do mine in just 2 colors of Malabrigo organic cotton. We only found one other pattern for knitting a bento bag online, and it’s in German.
