Hamilton, New Ze...
Living in a student city, many of the houses and flat around the university are not very well insulated or heated. After making a wheat bag for my boyfriend, I decided to make several of these for my other friends who are also freezing their butts off while trying to improve their education. I made medium sized wheat bags, giving my friends the option of what material they wanted by posting a photo on my facebook, and charging them $5 for the wheat.
This was the simplest project to make and I really have to stress that ANYONE could do this. It was a little tricky getting the size right. I knew I only wanted to use about 0.5kg per bag and my first one ended up having a little bit attached to the end to make it the right size.
Because not just my friends should experience the wonderfulness of snuggling up to one of these on a cold winter’s day, I have written up some instructions as to how I did it and made a pattern for the perfect wheat bag.
