Rice conforter bag’s pattern and tutorial
Immediately said, immediately cooked! (enjoy the muddy word game! )
Having seen general enthusiasm and brimming with number of comments (it is good to read you, tell me!) I stuck to the task and cooked it! The tutorial is already ready, hot, just out of my computer! :)
I say Christmas is coming!! Lol!
So briefly, It’s a tutorial to make a long bottle, especially for the neck and the cervicles. But you will find, it is just as good for the stomach, the back, or the bottom of the feet! Obviously you can change its form and its function.
I will share my experience with you, I use rice, simple, inexpensive rice because I don’t have any other cereals to hand (we can use linen, a thimble etc) nor cherry pips… Its not a bad idea to add some lavender which gives a nice smell when it is heated.
For heating, I put it on a plate in the micro-wave. I let it heat for about 45 seconds or so, but I would advise you to test it out, starting with just 20 seconds, and then adding 5 seconds each time.
The rice bottle is dry, so no risk of it leaking, and once you have chosen your heating time, there is little chance of you burning yourself with it (perfect for the children)!
I had my first rice bottle for about 2 years and if I don’t use it anymore, it’s simply because my dreadful mischievous children have hidden it on me and I haven’t been able to find it since!
Here is my first version:
Again, I suggest you use just the natural fabrics (cotton, linen etc) because we don’t know how well synthetic fibres will work in the microwave…. and I also suggest you use links as I have explained in the tuto and not ribbons as in my first version, because the ribbons eventually fray, and that’s not very pretty!
Go, finish the chatter and get into the tutorial!!!
