Unfortunately so do the dogs. They smell the rice and then go all tazmanian devil and destroy them. I have made no fewer than 6 of these, and all of them have been destroyed (Granted, one was because Finn threw one in a toilet full of ick, and you know I wasn't about to clean it, but still).
*Sigh* Looks like I'll be at the sewing machine again tonight, making another one (or three). Maybe one will survive.
On a positive note, I successfully made swim trunks for the baby. And I have enough fabric left over for trunks for Finn, and matching hats for both. Is that too much? :)
