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.
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!
