I had this really cute fabric from Cool Cottons and needed to make a birthday gift for a little girl in our playgroup. Since she is a Valentine’s baby, I thought this heart rice pillow would be a sweet present.
I came across the basic tutorial for a rice pillow on the blog, Wise Craft. I thought it would be a simple project, but the heart was a little harder then I expected. It took two tries, but it came out pretty well. I added lavender and brown rice to the pillow and used an old table linen for the inside liner. I like to think it will be a nice keepsake for her as she gets older.
