Rice - grocery or craft?

Well I said that I would just use up what craft supplies I had so whilst delving through drawers I found some left of charm squares.  So I decided I'd make some child size wheat bags! I got the idea from a friend who'd bought some whilst in the states last year, hers were filled with rice? So after abit of research I found that rice does actually work as well and it's alot easier to get hold of so here are my ouch pouches!!



I made about 15 but found I only had enough rice to fill 7. So is rice a grocery item or would you class it as a craft item in which case I wouldn't be able to buy any as that would break my first resolution/goal for Jan!

Whislt pondering this I decided I would make some big rice bags (well the cases until the rice issue is resolved)
And of course it's doggie fabric! I am in the midst of making others but have put them on hold till after the weekend as it's free listing on ebay and I have heaps and heaps of clothes to shift. I did really well last time so hopefully I can sell a few things then I'll have some craft cash for when I can buy more supplies lol.

Have a great weekend the iron and a tape measure are calling..

Well in this case since you are making ouch bags you are really using the rice for "medicinal" purposes so I think you are covered:)

Love these, they are on my to do list that is still ever growing, I saw a tutorial the other day for them and you can pop them in the microwave for about 14 seconds and they become little hand warmers although with the weather not being that cold I haven't needed to make any yet.

Love the fabrics!
