I keep seeing these tutorials around, and since I’m on my period and have cramps from hell I decided to make my own and provide my own tutorial here for you guys!
I’m not new to heat packs. They are pretty fun and two Christmases ago I made everyone a neck wrap heat pack to go along with my brown sugar scrub and beer shampoo. (Hand made gift baskets are my favorite!) They are really simple and so useful.
So, here we go. How to make a rice pack warmer:
You don’t really need a sewing machine. I didn’t get a sewing machine until the birthday after Gaia was born, and so while I was nesting I hand sewed everything. Depending on what size you choose to make your heat pack, you could probably just whip it up during an episode of “How I Met Your Mother.”
I chose two fabric scraps (one for each side). I actually still have enough scraps to do something else, so you might get sick of the tiny hearts. Just a warning. 🙂
I don’t claim to be a professional… I do what I want.
If you don’t have rice, you can also use beans, buckwheat, barley, feed corn, or flax seed. You can also mix herbs, spices, or essential oils to the rice (or whatever) if you want it to smell pretty.
And there you have it! Cute and easy, huh?
Working its magic.
Gaia is lazing around being a bum today and decided she needed the heat pack for her belly. I couldn’t resist the cuteness.
I hope everyone is having a great week thus far!
