Not much to say about this guy. I essentially followed this tutorial, but turned him into a rice bag instead of a bean bag. The rice is contained inside another bag inside the owl, and is removable so that the outer owl can be washed. This is important to me, as everything seems to get dirty in our house-- not to mentioned covered with dog hair. I'd really like to make some small hand warmers, but the smaller size wouldn't be machine washable.....I mean, can you throw rice in the wash?
