Corn, rice, bean bags…they are fantastic for warming up one’s bed in cold climates. We are the 2nd owners to a big 1880s Southern Maine farmhouse and it’s cold in here! We almost always warm up our beds with a heated bag at night during the winter months. Sure, we could just have a plain old rectangular bag to heat, or we could warm our bed in style. How about a cow rice bag? A not too tricky craft for you or as a gift. Give it a whirl!
You can also use the pattern to make an applique cow T shirt. This made my 3 year old beyond happy. See pics here: http://www.bornimaginative.com/2014/04/mama-made-applique-cow-shirt-free.html
