Matching Bento and Napkin

Bento with Matching Napkin

Awhile ago a reader suggested that I embroider a bento. I love my EasyLunchboxes so it was a natural choice to embroider it on a napkin. I enjoyed planning and creating this simple embroidered napkin with matching lunch.

Container: EasyLunchboxes

Stars: Peanut butter sandwiches on wheat bread

Fruit: Strawberry

Vegetable: Sugar snap peas

I made a 12 inch by 12 inch napkin from a Flour Sack Towel bought from Herrschners. I used a water erasable pen to transfer my pattern to my napkin. My stitching is done with a simple back stitch. For the food I used 2 strands of DMC thread. For the outline of the box I used DMC Perle 5. I would have used 2 strands of DMC thread but I did not have any black left in my stash. (If you would like the pattern, leave a comment or email me.)
