How to Make Wheaty Warmers

Toss that old hot-water bottle and get toasty with these pretty warmers instead.

You will need:

  • cotton fabric (do not use synthetic fabrics)
  • scissors
  • pins
  • sewing machine
  • wooden spoon
  • 1kg wheat
  • lavender oil (optional)
  • toilet roll core
  • needle and thread

To make

Step 1 - Cut out two 30cm x 20cm rectangular pieces of fabric.

Step 2 - Place the pieces of fabric on top of one another, right sides facing.

Step 3 - Pin all four edges to hold the pieces together. Leaving a 1cm seam allowance, sew around the bag. Leave a 6cm opening on one of the long sides to pour the wheat into. For extra strength, sew around the bag again.

Step 4 - Turn the bag right side out by pushing the fabric through the opening. Use the end of a wooden spoon to push out the corners.

Step 5 - Place the wheat into a bowl or cup and sprinkle with lavender oil. Place the toilet roll core into the hole in the bag and pour in the wheat.

Step 5 Step 6

Step 6 - Pin the opening in the bag closed and stitch by hand using the needle and thread.

Step 7 - Place the Wheaty Warmer into the microwave together with a cup of water, to prevent the wheat from drying out. Microwave on high for 2 minutes.
