Creative Fridays: Make your own bento bags

September 18, 2020 @ 17:30 - 19:30 CEST


Bento bags are a popular Japanese style of bag. They are called azuma bukuro which translates to “good fortune bag”. You can use these bento bags for bulk shopping, gift wrapping, a lunch box, and even a camera bag.

Daisy will guide us through the easy process of making our own bags. Bring fabric with your favorite patterns or upcycle something special like a childhood bed sheet set. Each bento bag uses 2 pieces of fabric. If bringing your own fabric, make sure both pieces of your woven (not knit) fabrics are each 30 cm x 100 cm (11 1/2 inches x 40 inches). If you don’t want to bring your own materials, fabric will be available at the event for 100 kroner/bag.

We will have sewing stations ready and looking forward to creating with you.

Cost: NOK200
Max Participants: 8

About WarmFolk & Daisy

WarmFolk quilts and patterns reflect a love of traditional craft and a celebration of modern aesthetics. Daisy Aschehoug created WarmFolk as a way to move her teaching and quilt design forward in the quilting industry, while also pursuing various art quilt endeavors. This site is currently in development but will soon include a range of products and services all designed to keep you and your loved ones happy and warm. Or “koselig” as they say in Norway.

Daisy Aschehoug currently lives in Nesodden, Norway. She grew up among sewing machines and fabric, but it wasn’t till her thirties that she finally asked her mother to teach me to sew. Quilting offered an opportunity to combine her new love for sewing with all of the art classes that she’d taken throughout my life. She realized a passion for selecting fabrics to incorporate into traditional and modern quilt patterns.

Daisy has been making quilts since 2010 and designing quilts for magazines since 2016. She is most passionate about the art of modern traditionalism and incorporating curved piecing into utility quilts. She is a member of the Modern Quilt Guild and the Studio Art Quilt Associates.

She has a masters in Environmental Studies from the University of Montana, and spent several years in the United States helping federal and state governments work with communities to develop best practices for managing natural resources. Now that she is fully immersed in designing, making, and teaching the art of quilting, she is excited to explore how the resources she uses in her craft can reflect socially and environmentally sustainable practices.
