I've been wanting to try this tutorial of Dacia's ever since she made them last Fall. It seemed like the perfect sewing project for me this week as I've been trying to lay low on the craft front for a few days which is no easy task for a woman obsessed. The smell of lavender and the feel of rice was just wonderful and so relaxing. The lavender is from my garden which has been drying up nicely outside so I just cut it and froze overnight in one of those freezer bags. The rice is basmati and I have a huge burlap bag of it that my Father brought me after we moved a few months ago. I love the look of those big bags of rice and they have such nice graphics.
Choosing the fabrics (which you really only need a small amount for so perfect for using up small scraps) is always so fun for me and these work up fast and multiply easily.
