A friend of mine had a baby a few weeks ago and when I delivered food to her house, I decided to include a small gift just for her! This was a fun and easy gift to make. I'm already plotting additional gifts for these!
I started by making the muslin bag but I didn't have any muslin so I used some plain cotton in yellow. I cut and sewed the edges before filling it with rice. I did overfill the bag because I didn't have a bag that was the exact measurement as the pin suggested. I think this would be a great place to add some essential oil too. I didn't this time but plan to the next time I make these.
After filling the inner bag, I got to work on the outside, more decorative bag. I found some pretty cotton fabric that reminded me of my friend. I also think fleece fabric would be a wonderful and cozy fabric for this project.
Cutting and sewing the outer pieces took me literally minutes. I think one could do a bunch of these in no time at all if they were organized and had the appropriate space.
This project took me about 30 minutes from start to finish, mainly because I didn't have anything set up. Next time I suspect I'll be able to get these done faster!
