This week my little warmers have each had a make over. One of my wheat bags was bought in a rush from a large cosmetics chain store when I used to work in an office in the city. It was a really, really ugly dark green cordurouy, and starting to look worn and tired, so when I spied a remnant of spotty cord for $1.80 at the fabric store I knew it was going to become my new wheat bag cover. Now it both feels and looks great for keeping toes warm when relaxing on the couch.
I don't use a hot water bottle much. I mainly have it for travelling because Australian airport customs very nearly confiscated a very nice wheat bag from me that I took on holidays to New Zealand because of the wheat inside. But a hot water bottle doesn't look or feel good without a cover, so I chopped up an old cardigan I had...
...and stuffed and pushed it around under the needle of my sewing machine, and spruced it up with some embroidery in blue wool. All ready for using at home, and abroad.
For more creative spaces, grab a hot chocolate and a wheat bag and pop on over to Kootoyoo!
