Soups and sandwiches are one of the only things that actually sounds good to me right now. I’m at the beginning of my second trimester, but will probably still be sick for a few more weeks. I think part of the reason soups and sandwiches sound so good is because they are usually served with PICKLES. It’s so cliche and ridiculous but I need pickles. NEED. Ah, so anyways, this post is dedicated to pickles.
I received the NEW Rubbermaid® fasten + go soup kit. Finally, a perfect way to transport soup! It has a base soup container and a top container for toppings or sides. I stuck sourdough bread in mine. And a little top tray for extras, like cilantro! It’s so versatile! They stack together, and a strap tightens to hold it all together. I made a large napkin to wrap it all up in. It’s a bento style lunch wrap that you tie at the top. You can wrap up a spoon and napkin, too, or use the wrap itself as your napkin! This wrap/napkin is perfect for spreading over your lap if you’re eating outside on a park bench, and can also be used to wrap up any kind of lunch container!
Bento Lunch Wrap Tutorial
-1/2 yard of fabric for front, approx 22″ by 25″
-1/2 yard of fabric for back, same dimensions
Sew front and back together with right sides together. Leave a 2-3″ opening for turning.
Turn and press.
Topstitch around wrap with a 1/8″ seam allowance. The topstitching will also close the opening you left!
And you’re done! So fast!
- Use smaller dimensions for table napkins
- Add interfacing or batting for an insulating wrap
- Add small embroidery design to personalize
