Here’s a quick and inexpensive gift idea…
I recently made this wheat bag as a brithday gift for a friend. She is pregnant and I thought this would be ideal for all the aches and pains that go along with pregnancy.
A wheat bag is really simple to make. All you need is some fabric of your choice (apparently any type will do, but I have only ever used 100% cotton and courdroy), enough wheat to fill the bag approximately 3/4 full, your sewing machine and cotton to match. Sew up 3 sides of a bag (you choose the size), turn bag right sides out. 3/4 fill the bag with wheat. Turn raw edges of open end in and sew a narrow seam to close the bag. That’s it, you’re done!
To make it a gift, tie some raffia or pretty ribbon around and add an instruction tag. – Wheat bag instructions
Something I would like to try is to add some dried lavender buds with the wheat to give a lovely, relaxing fragrance.
Have you made a wheat bag before? If not maybe you could give it a try! I think I might make some mini ones for the school fete arts and crafts stall.
Thanks for stopping in today. Happy Crafting!
