Rice Bag

from Shiny Happy World
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Rice Bag
Rice Bag
Rice Bag

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.
