(if you don’t have pinking shears, place fabric write sided together, sew as instructed and then turn right side out.) 3. fill 3/4 of the way up with rice. 4. using a long pin, block the rice from falling out of the opening and sew closed. 5. using pinking shears, trim the edges…. it will keep them from fraying.
