here are my really cute animal wheat cushions inspired by the uterus therapy cushion.

tutorial (my first)

they are really easy to make first u need

some nice fabric scraps that will fit in with the animal ur making
about a kg of wheat grains (depends how squishy or hard you want ur pillow)
assorted felt for eyes, ears etc.
a nice essence to add to the finished product e.g lavender oil, vanilla essence
some card

now ur ready to start crafting

first create a rough template from the pic below to use as a guide for ur body pieces

cut out four of these pieces for the body.

now cut out any pieces u may need for eyes, pupils, feet, noses, ears

pin every to the body sections except the pupils and feet as u will be adding them later

sow these down and then attach pupils and make mouth

now sow together two of the body parts together then repeat with other two. sow over each seam twice for maximum strength

then place the two halves right sides together , pin and sow but dont forget to leave hole at the back for turning through

after that turn the animal so the right side is out and pin and hand sow the feet

now either make or use a funnel to fill the animal with as much wheat as you want but be sure to leave at least a little gap

add about 2-3 teaspoon of essence to the inside and shake to make sure the it is spread evenly

now fold the open edges and sow

and you are finished!!!!!!

now place it in the microwave for 2-3 minute stopping it every minute to shake

I like these! The blue striped one looks like a guinea pig!  Very cute!  I may have to make one for my daughter.

Cute way to stay warm!

If you make smaller ones, you can use it to warm your hands in your jacket pockets.  Smiley
