    cat shaped rice bags

    I made these rice bags as gifts. I also made two black plaid ones for the guys but didn't get a picture. I made sure to tell them not to microwave them longer than 3 minutes... my aunt had burned one recently.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Cute! I saw on The Quilt Show site this week they had a link to little square ones as Pocket Warmers! Why didn't I think of that?

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
