Oh. Um. Hi there!
Holidays, travel, craziness. You know how it goes.
Anyways, I realized I never showed the other scrappy gift I made. This one was a birthday gift for my husband, who tends to get tension headaches and loves heat packs on the back of his neck.
It’s a rice heat therapy bag with washable cover, and I found the tutorial at Sew, Mama, Sew. Super easy, and I added an extra round of topstitching around the edges of the rice bag for a little more security.
Of course, when I made the second one, I realized that topstitching was a lot easier if I did the first three sides before I put the rice in the bag. Genius, here. And, speaking of being an idiot, I didn’t take a picture of the second one before I gave it to my aunt. But it was cream with green and purple scraps and really matched her decor. I swear.
Anyways, throw together a few today! It takes no time at all. Chuck that bag in the microwave for two minutes and you’ve got nice, toasty weight to put on that knot in your shoulder or tuck under the covers to keep your toes warm.
