What are you most proud of? How easy and versatile this is. No measurements. Just figure out what you want it to look like and start cutting.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep in mind what you want to use this for. If you want it to wrap around your neck, make it long enough. If you want it shaped like a heating pad, use a heating pad as your template.

I put cinnamon oil in mine. Sometimes, I sew channels in them so the rice/buckwheat stays put. I have made some that are for the back with ribbons that tie around the body so you can move around with the heat applied. They are great for people with arthritis in their hands if you make them in the shape of a simple mitten, with a sleeve to insert the hand. Just a few more options.....have a happy sewing day!

Is the fleece o.k to put in the microwave?

04/23/2013 Flag

I find fleece comes out of the microwave feeling "wet," so I make my heat packs with only cotton fabric now.

You can use flannel and it doesn't feel "wet" our of the microwave.
