At the end of the day I have tight shoulders. It Must be all the computer work during the day and sewing at night. Not to mention being a mom with 2 very active kids. I put this bag together in about 5 minutes.
It is actually 2 bags, an inner one to hold the wheat (or long grain rice) and the outer flannel. My flannel was $1.50 in the clearance section and I used scrap material for the inner bag because you don’t see it.
Inner: 6.5 inch by width of fabric
Outer: 7 inch by width of fabric
Seam allowance. 1/4
Fold each piece in half and sew the perimeter, but leave a short opening for the grain in the the inner bag and a short opening in the outer to stuff the completed inner bag into. Fold the last opening edges in and sew the final seam. Don’t over fill the bag. I filled mine half way, then when all done, pushed the grain around to top sew a seam to make compartments evenly distributed.
I am going to make these for coworkers this Xmas. Easy, cheap, and can go with a ‘stress free’ themed gift!
Place in the microwave for 2 minutes or store in the freezer – and use.
