I think I read one too many historical fiction books in my life, because I am a romantic right down to my toes. One of my idealistic dreams is to live on a farm where daily life with my family is nothing short of beautiful perfection. The project I made last night just slides right into this simple life. This is a hot water bottle cover. I have wanted a hot water bottle for a while, but never remembered to look for one until yesterday when the hubby was home sick. Only $5! We don’t have a microwave, so having an instant little heater is big. I can just imagine my little kids toting it off to their beds someday.
(For those of you who don’t know what a hot water bottle is: it is a rubber bag that you put hot water into and it provides heat. In the “good old days,” people would tuck them in their beds for a little added warmth.)
P.S. I’m learning that a lot of sewing is simply cutting out the shape you are looking for. Check out this book for some fun ideas–Sew Pretty Homestyle.
