Skill Level:

little skill level requirement Novice

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • simple sewing

Pattern Description:

Stitch up this easy rice bag and pop it in the microwave whenever you need a little warmth. Make one for yourself - and lots more for gifts.

In the cold hemisphere you can use your rice bag to stay toasty warm. Heat it for one minute (or a little more) in the microwave. Use it as a foot warmer when you go to bed at night. Or lay it on your chest when you have a cold. Drape it around your neck if you've spent too long at the sewing machine. :-)

In the warm hemisphere - don't save this project for next winter! In the summertime my daughter likes to keep hers in the freezer to pull out whenever she needs a quick cool-off. Drape the cold bag around your neck on a hot day for instant bliss.


  • one fat quarter

You Will Also Need:

  • rice or other microwavable filler

Excellent Super easy and works like a charm!  October 16, 2012

With the holidays fast approaching, I have spent many, many hours slaving away at my sewing machine. My neck is this close to going on strike. lol! I remembered seeing this pattern when I first joined Craftsy and decided to give it a shot. Not only was it beyond easy to make, but it works great! My neck feels a thousand time better. Thank you Shiny Happy World!

I'm on a mission to teach people to sew, quilt, and embroider. I design patterns especially for beginners and I never release a pattern until I have videos teaching you every skill you'll need to complete the project. Have fun!
