Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
You will need
soft fleece
cotton fabric
needle and thread
raw rice grain (not cooked!)
scented oil

Step 2: The Warmer

I sewed by hand as I didn't have a machine....feel free to sew by machine :-)
first make a small cotton rectangle pillow by folding a 13" x7" rectangle cotton fabric in half and sewing on 2 sides. now turn it inside out and fill it with rice grain and a drop our two of your favorite scented oil.
Sew close the opening.
Now measure and mark the center and also 2" from either side.
Cut 3  11/2" tabs of Velcro.
Use fabric glue and paste the prickly tab on the marked places in the rice pillow.
Now thread your needle and simply start stitching randomly in the pillow so the grain will not bunch up in one place and also to make sure the grain is evenly spread.
