I have one that I bought the 'MagicBag' and there is only just over 2 lbs of rice in it. I would think that 6 lbs would be awfully heavy on your shoulders and neck. www.magicbag.com

I've used lavender also in the rice bags I made. A little lavender goes a looooong way.
this is frustrating. i just saw the one she made somewhere and thought i either saved a link to it or printed it out. i was going to look and see how much rice it called for. maybe i'll find it later.
Once you microwave the corn or rice no bugs will get in there. i have made several of these corn or rice bags and i go to the feed store and ask for field corn. It is whole corn that they feed to animals. I don't know of another product to use but these two.
Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.
Wheat or barley work, I use the cheapest rice I can get bulk or packaged. I like the smell better than the smell of the other grains.

I don't like mine scented at all. i bought one and it had some sort of scent in it that i did not want to smell like, i returned it and got one unscented. i have a long roll type one from JC Penneys years ago that I also like, unscented.
STill, one day i want to make one of these. i just won't add any scent.
