I had the same problem as Naomi - I used rice and it always bunched in one end - how good that you have solved this problem with the compartments - don't heat your corn too long in the microwave or you will have pop-corn - yummy LOL :o))

I love how you sewed the scarf in sections. I was getting irritated by the rice always falling to the ends. The toilet paper funnel is brilliant.

Thank you so much for this. Good thing that I have a long weekend because I will be making lots of these!!
