tutorial::rice bag feet warmer


this would be a perfect holiday gift for neighbors, friends, or teachers. it’s fast it’s cheap and essential for the cold weather!

what you’ll need:
one bag of rice (i used a 1 lb 12 oz bag) one fat quarter of muslin and one fat quarter of really cute fabric. (this particular fabric is moda)

first you are going to cut two 14 x 7 inches rectangles out of your muslin (this will be your rice bag)

sew together along three sides of your muslin pieces using a 1/4 seam allowance.

turn it inside out and fill it with the whole bag of rice.

fold in the raw edge in on itself and sew shut. your rice bag is done, so put it aside. now lets start working on your cover.

grab your super cute fabric and cut out three different rectangles. one at 14 x 7 the second one at 10 x 7 and the third one at 8 x 7

now the two smaller rectangles are the back so you are going to fold over 1/4 inch once (on one of the 7 inch side) and press with an iron…

then fold over again for the second time and press with an iron. do the same to the second small rectangle.

next sew along your folded fabric so that you end up with two nice finished edges

place right sides together

make sure you pin down all three pieces

and sew along all four sides together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

turn inside out and stuff the muslin rice bag inside your slip cover.

and now your toe’s can be all nice and toasty in style and it’s so darn cute that it’ll even look good hanging out on your night table!

have a great valentines day, we’re planning a low key celebration (which really means: i couldn’t get a babysitter, but hey i don’t care the kids are still young enough that they go to bed early and that’s when the oreos and ice cream come out!)
