small felt owl stuffed with uncooked rice
Pencil or pen
First, use the template to cut out the shapes from felt. Make sure you cut two pieces for the body. Then begin sewing each piece together. You will want to start by sewing the heart to the tummy, then the tummy to the top body piece, then the eyes, then the beak. I used a small tapestry needle and 2-ply yarn to stitch each piece together. Again, much easier if you have a sewing machine. But you could also just make a simple heart shape and use a blanket stitch to sew the edges together.
Before you finish sewing the two body pieces together, fill with rice then sew closed.
When ready to use, heat in microwave for approx. 30 seconds and enjoy up to 30 minutes of heat.
