I had promised to make some toys for cats for the breeder of Wolfje. (my still kitten cat);-D
And i had some pillowscase leftover for my self. I have problems with freezing fingers in the cold winter time and thought why not craft small heating pillows for in my mitts?
I use them no everytime i must get out and i helps me to get my fingers warm and comfort.
Mayby you can use it too.;-D or make some for friends, when you put some herbs in the pillow cases the smell swell.
because i had made some cat toys of the same material and it must be catstable and cat proof, i had sew cotton fabric and a desing fabric on each other.
But you don't have too. You must use two layers if the cotton fabric is too thin of the same size.
So cut 4 shapes of 10cm/ 4 inches by 20 cm/ 8 inches. Or more when you like more heating pillows for in your clothes or i've you want to give this as a present.
The frontside, so you see how it did this.
Stich before you fold and stich later on the seams, you must sew the two fabrics the desing and the white cotton on each other. on the first pict you see it better, Just round the fabric it will do.
Fold the the fabric in two, the small sides on each other. The outside is now inside.
Sew it like the pict, Leave a part open.
After the sewing cut of the edges like the pict show you.
And turn the inside out.
Take a bag of dried rices. Such as this, You can use the cheapest ones of the dried rices.
dried lavender herbs or other herbs of flowers.
take the bowl or bin, the measuring jug and a funnel, you need this for the next step.
Measure 1/4 cup levender and put in it in the bowl, measure the1/4 cup rice and put it in the bowl.
Mix this togehter.
Pick up the funnel and put it in the little gate of the pillow. See the pict.
downpour the mix in the funnel and let it downpour in the pillow case.
Next step, sew with some stiches the gate in the pillow . Now your done.
You must heated the pillows one minute with some water in the microweave.
Thats because the rice wouldn't dry out .an you will have longer pleasure of your heating pillows.
And put the pillows in your mittens before you must go out.
I hope you have great pleasure of this. And much fun with the crafting.;-D
