Wee Holiday Napkin

We decided to make some Christmas themed napkins from the Christmas fabric I designed some weeks back, for Spud's bento lunches. And here it is, in all its zigzag, rolled hemmed glory.

Wee Bento Napkin

We took a square of some of my Robot Fabric and made a little napkin for Spud's bento lunch. Maybe this will encourage him to stop using his school clothes as a napkin? Maybe?

This was our first project using our new "rolled hem" foot for the sewing machine. It makes tight little 1/4 inch hems pretty nicely.

Double Decker Bento

The top layer, on the left, is for snack time. Some of this is saved for lunch time as well [and any of the veg that is left after school gets reintroduced on the way home, when he's his most hungry and therefore most vulnerable. Sorry kid. Wink. But it works].
Burger patty [leftover]
Butterfly cookie [from he freezer]
Cheese sticks
Mini orange
Celery half moons
Molded egg [I used a star shaped mold but the egg was too small so it looks more like a flower]
Carrots [protected by the bunny]

The main compartment simply boasts a turkey sandwich and some strawberries.

Wee Stickers

Just had some of my robo sticker designs printed ... to give to my fabric customers ... as a little treat. It's a little addictive. I want to make more and more!

Our Hallows Eve

Cat got the [pink?] canary.

Spud's first jack o lantern ... without any direction. I carved out the pieces he indicated. It's unconventional but charming somehow.

Then 2 princesses and a robot went out into the night searching for loot.

Spud's last year's M-O costume, from the WALL-E movie, made a reappearance this year. Thumbs up from the Spud.

The glowing red light on top was added to this year's model.
