Lavender Wheat Bag

I was looking through my sewing photo album and found this. I made this lavender hot wheat bag at Christmas as a present for Doug's grandma :-) she liked the way I packaged it up with the tag and ribbon so much she refused to untie it!!

I made an inner wheat bag which was made using two rectangles of heavy weight cotton slowly filled at intervals with a mix of lavender, wheat and a few drops of lavender oil. Every few inches I sewed across the rectangular bag to make parcels of the lavender wheat mix. This stopped it moving around too much inside the inner bag. I then made the outer purple case as shown in the pictures with a flap at the back to allow Doug's Grandma to wash it.
