Have you ever worried about keeping your heating pad with you in bed while plugged in all night? Looking for the perfect solution?
For Christmas gifts we made Rice Warmers. You can use them in place of a heating pad for soreness or cramps. You can take one to bed with you on a cold night. If made correctly, they can stay warm for 20 to 30 minutes.
Pick 2 coordinating, pre-washed fabrics. I found some in my Heather Ross stash. Flannel works well, though a tight weave such as poplin, gives a light feel to the skin:
Using your rotary cutter, cut 2 - 8.5 x 14 inches.
Sew around 3 sides, leaving a smaller end open. Trim corners.
We made some with pannels, but I don't think they'll stay warm as long.
