I love wheat bags. They make amazing heating pads. They're great for cramps, neck or back aches, or to warm up your feet in bed. I choose to use wheat because I like the smell of it when it is heated up, but I know others have used rice. I did some research on it, and apparently feed corn (not pop corn) is the best to use because it holds heat the longest. Since I'm fresh out of feed corn and have a ton of wheat in my basement, wheat it is!
You can use any material you want, but I think it is nice to have something pretty to comfort you when you feel crummy. This bag was actually going to be a tote bag, but when I started putting it together I didn't like it, so I turned it into a wheat bag. So, these aren't the normal dimensions of one. I'll tell you the proper size in the directions. Just remember that my pictures will look a bit different than yours.
Color A: Cut 1 rectangle 11 in. x 9 in.
Color B: Cut 2 rectangles 11 in. x 5 in.
Color C: Cut 2 rectangles 13 in. x 4 in. (if you don't want to make the handles, you can use 1 in. grosgrain ribbon. You'll need 2 pieces that are 13 in. long.
Decoration: 2 pieces of 3/8 in. grosgrain ribbon that are 11 in. long.
1. Lay A right side up so that it is 11 in. high and 9 in. wide. With right sides facing, sew both B pieces to either end of piece A. I used 1/2 in. seams.
