So, this is the gift that I made for my husband this year. It is a crocheted comfort pack.
I filled it with flax seed, sewed a bag to put the seeds in, and the crocheted the washable, 100% cotton cover to go over it. I crocheted little buttons, so that the cover can be washed. I thought it turned out very nicely.
Here is the website with the directions. It was super easy - I think I might even make more.
