    knee socks. Add rice till firm but still has some "give" and sew up the opening (you can even do this by hand if you don't have a machine-just reinforce the closing seam a few times). The cool thing about making your own is the funky socks you can find in the "teen" boutiques in the mall.

    Or you can even use the material sold as quilting fat quarters, but there you have to sew at least three sides (four looks better to my persnickety self), and I wouldn't reccommend that as a project for hand sewing.  Makes you think about our ancestors having to sew dresses and why poor people's clothes had less yardage, doesn't it?

    The sock rice bag can be a fun gift as well. But if you're not feeling crafty for whatever reason, I concur with peregrine kate. BB&B is a good source.  ;)
