A Bento bag or two..

My sister was recently admiring this little Bento bag,

and it reminded me that I wanted to try a larger one.

 This one started as a 43.5" by 14.5" rectangle,

just so I have the details for next time!

I stumbled across a variation which joined the 


instead of knotting the ends as in the original.

So I followed this version

and stitched the ends together....

and added a spotty handle.

This bag now holds 800g of yarn, needles and 

pattern ready for my next knitting project!

Quick and very satisfying!

Happy sewing!



  1. Cute and a great switch up on a pattern.

  2. Yes, I too love it, pretty & so useful! And such gorgeous fabric!

  3. This is encouraging me to try bento bags again. I can see how the handle version would work better. Otherwise, the combo of outside and lining can be a bit bulky to tie.

  4. Pretty fabric. What are you knitting now? Hows the hand healing?

  5. Quick and very cute which means very inspiring for me. I love it with the handle.

  6. It's nice to have a quick (and oh so pretty) finish!! Thinking of you and hope you're healing quickly.

  7. I love those bags that have the side seams and that folded look, and now I'm glad to have a name for them. Your Bento Bag is really cute, with that spotty hand-hold. Seems to me it would give you more room, too, rather than tying it down low. Great job!

  8. Oh, that is a delightful variation, Susan! Love that extra detail of adding spots for the handle - so cute!
