Pocket Rice Bags

I love these little rice bags! They are super quick, great for beginners, and are an awesome way to use that pile of scrap fabric that’s lying around.

I prefer to use flannel for my rice bags. I love the soft texture. You want to make sure to select a fabric that can be ironed.

These bags are stitched twice, which adds a cute little border around the edges.

I like to make my rice bags in pairs, creating a set of two. Great for each pocket!


  • Flannel or cotton fabric ( 1/8 yard or Scraps – two 4.25 inch squares needed for each rice bag)
  • Rice
  • Coordinating Thread



Happy Sewing!

      Thank you! I’m glad you are enjoying the videos. I use these little rice bags as hand warmers. I heat them in the microwave for just a few seconds and the rice holds the heat for quite a while. You do have to be quite careful with the timimg to ensure it doesn’t get too hot or burn. Since each microwave is different I like to test it in 10 second increments to see what works best. Hope this helps!
