Happy birthday Violet! Today my little girl turned 9...almost two hands full. Since i'm pretty sure i will never get up early enough to make her bento lunches and i've always had a facination with bento charaben lunches i decided to make her one that would last for ever. The little mushrooms and grass are made out of cloth and the bunnies are crochet with pleather eyes to look like nori. The whole thing was ridiculously fun to make complete with the trip to japan town in San Francisco to pick up the totoro bento box. It even came with some of those nifty japanese erasers shaped like food so she can feed them! I will be making more for sure...Bento Buddies!
