At our house the rice pillow is the cozy remedy for sore joints, headaches, tummy trouble, or cold feet. Luckily, they are so easy to make. I made these two out of a couple of T-shirts that I was finished with.
Cut two strips of fabric–the striped one is about 15″x 4.” The flower one is about 15″x 5.” The size depends on what you’ll be doing with it. A nice square is great for keeping your feet warm and a longer strip makes a good back of the neck wrap. The exact measurements aren’t that big of a deal.
Double zigzag the edges leaving one short side open.
Fill with rice, or wheat. We chose wheat because this is Utah…and we are all about wheat. :]
You can sew the end shut or tie it into a huge knot–that works well with cotton knit.
It is a good idea to sew a pillow case for your rice pillow that you can remove and throw in the washer every week or so.
