Hey! Welcome to my first tutorial! I hope you enjoy it! Please critique it as much as you like! (I'd rather know what to change for my next tutorials then to make more sucky ones.)
Step 1: Sewing the Outer Bag:
2.) Fold the felt in half. The Hamburger way.
3. ) Take some sturdy thread of your choice and sew two of the felts side. Pretty self explanatory, I'm not going to go into detail about how to sew it xD.
Step 2: Making the Inner Bag:
2.)Fold it in half the hamburger and tape two of the edges.
3.) Fill it 3/4 full with dried rice or beans and tape the last edge.
OPTIONAL: Add a couple drops of essential oils into the rice. Try peppermint or something relaxing like lavender.
Step 3: Adding the Button:
2.) Flip the bag inside out.
3.) Sew your button on the inside of the felt bag, so if the bag was flat the button would peek from your cut line, push the button through the hole a couple times, to stretch out the felt a little.
Step 4: Finishing the Rice Bag:
2.) Microwave the bag, or stuff it in the freezer! You can replace the rice any time, and easily!
3.) Give the bag away for a gift, or keep it for yourself!
I hope you like this tutorial! Feel free to ask any questions! :D
