Easy Christmas Present
i started making christmas presents, finally... this year a whole lot of people are getting grain pillows in various shapes to stay warm and comfortable. This one is for the cousin of my boyfriend. She´s five and i thought she might like a strawberry more than a square shaped pillow.
It´s really easy, just some cotton fabric and about 350g of organic spelt grains. Make sure that you won´t add metal parts when you plan to heat it in the microwave!
