For this week’s “Sunday Funday” sale, I made spoon + fork utensil case and mini serviettes, to go inside a chid’s lunch box for school or daycare. I used organic cotton prints from my stash. Aren’t they cute? I love the tulip fabric in particular. The cases are just little padded bags, with a small velcro closure in the middle. It fits one spoon, one fork, and one small serviette. The padding inside makes the case soft and cushy. I hope this set will make children smile at school lunch time, holding the cushy case to take out their favorite utensils. I hope they’ll feel a little more loved – even if the lunch itself might consist of dinner leftovers. I lined these cases with coordinating organic cotton prints. Yes they might get dirty if the lunch involves tomato sauce or something, but it’s easy to just toss it in the washing machine. I am a big fan of reusable serviettes or napkins. They feel so much better on your face than paper ones. We use them at home all the time, as well as for the kids’ school lunch boxes. Even though the utensil case has a simple design, I spent hours coming up with it. In my mind I thought of zippers, tabs, flaps, ribbons, and other closures, and then ruled them out one by one. I thought of using nylon lining, then I ruled it out. I thought of a tall design but decided to go with a wide design. I love this process of coming up with the perfect design – and in the end, it’s often the simplest design that works best. I hope to make these cases in grownup prints next time.
