I make them using rice but you can fill with flax seed ,buckwheat or various things.

You can also add herbs,flowers or essential oils in your filling.

Heat in microwave for 90 seconds.

Mine measures- 26 inches long.

Measure your neck and add a few inches . Cut out a strip of fabric ( I use cotton)

6x 26 inches fold in half . Sew with right sides together the side and across bottom . Turn -and fill -and stitch closed.

I live in an old house with doors that don’t shut. During winter to combat drafts . I make door draft stopper the same way.

Measure your door . And make the same tube – fill with batting  or foam.You can make this out of heaver material to help with wear.  .

 

Need  something heaver – you can use old foam swim noodles cut to size.

You can make a double with a few modifications. Use a larger piece of fabric that will cover both tubes and leave fabric down the middle that will slide under the door, Make the two tubes and fill. Slide under door.

Handmade paper

Inside my card is some handmade paper I made with flower seeds that can be planted.

Paper can easily be made

I tore up scrapbook paper soak in water put  into  blender with small amount of water. Blend paper until smooth. Strain thru mesh. Add in seeds and smooth out to dry. Drying times vary by weather .

Great to do with kids for Mother’s day. 

Have fun -lisa😊
