“laundry day” bento

8 04 2010

i’ve been hoarding this cute laundry line paper since the winter… the line of paper is appropriately titled “signs of spring,” and i just thought the little clothing items were so cute, but there were no signs of spring for so long in new york, that i kind of forgot about it.  well, spring is definitely here now (it was actually more like summer here yesterday, with temps up to 90 degrees!), and it really is laundry day for me tomorrow, so it seemed like the perfect time to finally break this paper out.

using the toothpick (or straight pin) method, i cut little clothing pieces out of cheese and fish sausage, and lined them up on a spicy chick-n patty.  the patty itself is on top of brown-and-white rice mixed with green peas, and the rest of the box contains purple potato flowers, grape tomatoes, steamed broccoli, a strawberry and a blackberry, pea pods, and two slices of tamagoyaki rolled the round way, like i recently saw in a cute bento made by babykins.

for another adorable take on edible clothing, check out e-obento. hope everyone has a great friday and start to their weekend!

So cute! You know I love the mini-winnies! Way to make the patty fun, and nice coordination with the paper too🙂

Is there really white cheese? Or am I not seeing things?

no you’re totally right sheri – i just edited post. i *had* the laundry line on a white cheese disc, but i actually thought the patty was a better contrast, so i removed it. thanks for the catch, and glad you like these minis (wasn’t sure if you liked mini everything, or only mini food!)🙂

You always have such creative ideas ! The paper looks fab and so is your bento. I bet you wish that doing the laundry would go as swiftly as eating your cheese/ham laundry line🙂 (I know I would).
