Bento Lunch Box

So the third Thursday of every month, the Kindergartners have bento lunch day. (aka, brown paper bag lunch). Normally, they eat the schools healthy lunch. The Kindergartners have to have a cup with a cup bag, placemat, silverware and a drawstring like bag to put their bento box and the rest of the gear. I went to buy a matching set for Micah, and they were so expensive, around $75 to outfit a plastic bento box, silverware, lunchbox, cup, placemat and cup bag. I decided to sew some of it and buy the rest. I love the Shinkansen theme, so I bought fabric on sale and made this small set. Now I just need to buy the bento box and the silverware to match! I have couple weeks to buy them.
