- outer material
I wanted to make these with a cute towel material that had moons on them. I used some cotton for the inner layer to make sure there were no leaks. So with the cotton cut to an inch larger than desired size. Hem on three of the sides, trim the sides, turn inside out. Repeat for however many you are making. In a bowl combine seven cups of rice and twelve tablespoons of lavender, mix, transfer rice/lavender mixture in to bag, fold sides inward hem twice.
for the outer layer of fabric if you are using one repeat the steps for the cotton fabric. Insert inner bag in to outer lining fold sides inward and hem twice.
These are great and they smell wonderful, I have some culinary lavender and I might have to make some lavender rice. Anyway then you can put these in the microwave. These can not be washed and if they get wet they are ruined, I always put a towel down in the microwave just to make sure they stay clean. For one this size I microwave for two minutes then flip it over and microwave for one.
They are great for aches and pains, babies like them too, just make sure and decrease the microwave time.
It was also my plan this year to give everyone cookie jars as well but then I realized after buying all of the supplies that I only had one quart jar, which you kind of need to make this work, so only one luck girl got one. Here is how you make them, directions via Williams-Sonoma.
