Step 1: Supplies
Small stuffed bear
Plain homemade heart shaped cookies I used 8 Miniature cookies to fill the bear.
Ribbon to tie around bear's neck and cookies
Small plastic bag to wrap cookies in
Step 3: Seam
Open the back of the bear using the seam ripper.
The seam should be open large enough to insert a small rice bag.
Sew each side of the opening to make a nice finished edge.
Secure the stitches at the beginning and the end of the opening.
Step 4: Velcro
Place the Velcro on each side of the back opening.
Either sew the Velcro or glue it to secure it.
Remove the center section of the bear's stuffing to make room for the cookies and rice bag.
Warning: Never microwave the bear! It may catch on fire. The rice bag is removable and is made to go in the microwave if you make it following my instructions with the link provided in step 6.
Step 5: Wrap cookies
Wrap the cookies in a plastic bag and tie a ribbon around the top.
Place the cookies in the bear and close the back with Velcro.
Tie the ribbon around the bear's neck.
Step 6: Rice Bag Poem
The Rice Bag
This little bear filled with rice,
Is such a comforting device.
Microwave for 2 minutes on high
And kiss those aches and pains goodbye.
Apply it to the troubled spot,
The heat will ease the pain a lot.
Or warm those little toes so cold,
You'll find this nice to have and hold.
Or freeze it for a little while,
And fix that booboo up in style.
Instead of a compress made of ice,
Use this bear filled with rice.
