Winter sewing and 'Sugar Blossom'

This week I decided to make some heat bags for winter, filled with Australian wheat. They can be used for cold bags too.DSC07551I made them for our Kindergarten fundraising ladies night we had. We had a ball and the ladies who won them were thrilled. They are so easy to make and I lined them and overstitched so they looked like they were quilted.  All it took was some leftover yummy fabrics and 500gm wheat.

This is just gorgeous and so girly. I love the range and its the latest fabric line from..... Katicupcake...  and if you'd love to have a sample visit Kati's blog for a giveaway... HERE to enter. Please don't forget to mention I told you to visit. Melody told me! I just love the freshness of this range and I can imagine a few things made from it...a bag for me or some skirts for my girls and just maybe a quilt or three... he he.
No I am off to finish a quilt for a friend that I am meandering all over...LOL

Happy stitching

Sweet Cinnamon-y Hugs

I love those bags, Dawn - I make mine with rice. They're perfect for when my neck is aching, or I'm just chilled. That fabric IS yummy!

Those wheat heat bags are great. My daughter bought one from a school stall more than 15 years ago for a Fathers' Day present and it is still going! I love the fabric. Such pretty prints.

Hi Dawn...
I used to make heat bags for my kids when they were little. I made them in teddy bear shapes, though, and even a dinosaur once. They loved them. What a nice memory. I hadn't thought about them for years now.
Hope all is well with you.
