Remember the Hooting Pads I made last year? Fun, huh? This year, I made some rice heating pads for some last minute gifts and for us. Our old hot socks were pretty sorry looking.
I made these five with this tutorial, sewing the divisions three inches apart with about 3/4 cup of rice in each. These started out as a 14" square piece of fabric which ended up about 13" x 6". The was a lot of pinning. I must confess, I am a lazy pinner. There were a bunch of bent pins that didn't survive this project.
I found this Oh so much easier tutorial and made this one. You really only want to fill each section about 1/2 full. Any more than that, they don't bend as much as I like.
Since that was so easy, I made 2
ugly masculine bags. These turned out a little bigger because they are manly.
There is a printable label here if you want to make your own and give as gifts. I made up my own because I love damask.
