A little while ago, the You Sew Girls (Nikki and her wee one), made a Hot Frog wheat bag from that pattern over there on the sidebar. Last week, the shortest You Sew Girl, designed me a wheat bag pattern in return. AND INCLUDED A SEAM ALLOWANCE (that kid so knows the express route to her Mama’s heart). Like I was never going to give this one a whirl!
Like all good patterns it was an easy one to adapt for my purposes – I stuffed the neck and head with 100% wool stuffing and confined the wheat bit to the body. My littlest was beside herself chuffed to finally have her own ‘growed up’ wheat bag.
We overcame the fitting-in-the-microwave issues with a session of giraffe yoga.
Meanwhile, as I type, my middle is in the living room designing a menagerie of wheat bags. Despite constant prompting, he hasn’t once considered a seam allowance.
