    I made this with 1 fat qtr...no cutting required...sew inside out - fill with rice and your favorite tea herbs. sew opening. Heat for 2-3 mins. in microwave. Throw on feet and enjoy...ohhhh so warm.
    I will sew together scraps and sew them into rice pillows for gifts.

    my feet are buried in there...

    we make ours with double layers of muslin- then make a removeable cover (case) for them so the rice bag part can be taken out and the cover washed. my granddaughter's are flannel- they love them- their warm snuggle hugs when they need a little comfort

    as long as you use 100% cotton batting- a poly blend would melt in the microwave.

    I have a corn bag - and it has an outer removable cover that is washable and a very sturdy inner bag that contains the corn.

    I use towel material (doubled) on one side and flannel on other pillowcase style, with rice/corn on inside muslin bag. That way if to hot use towel side then as cools flip over to flannel side. case can be removed and washed.

    Was given a corn bag. The corn is encased in muslin that you nuke for 2 minutes. You then slip it into a separate fuzzy flannel sleeve. Many years of wonderful comfort
