I am selling my wares at a conference in a few weeks. I decided I needed to make some rice heat bags. I thought they would be simple and I love mine so I thought it would be nice. I also think they would be nice for weight therapy and I may take one for each kid for our LONG drive to Florida in 69 days. . .
I started with some soft flannel that I bought in fat quarters. It was only $1.29 a peice at JoAnns. I cut them in about 2/3's.
Then I turned them right sides together and sewed down two sides leaving the top open. I turned the unfinished edges inside and sewed two straight lines down the square to make 3 channels.
I bought a huge 25 pound bag of rice at Sam's Club tonight for like $8. I used a cup and filled the channels about 3/4's full of rice. (I made 6 bags tonight and it barely looks like I touched the amount of rice I bought)
I then sewed the top shut. I took a picture with my hand so you could see the size.
I made 6 rice heat bags in a half hour. Nice! I used the other 1/3 of the fat quarters and sewed them to another piece and made yet another bag. No fabric was wasted in the making of this project. :)
I thought that floding them and tying them with a ribbon would be a cute way to sell them at the conference. I will also attach an instruction tag to the top .
What do you think?
