These are real easy and quick gifts to make, and great for any occation, use them all year round. They are sewn exactly like a small pillow with a few minor changes shown below. If you have any questions about the pattern below please let me know, I would be glad to help if you run into trouble.
Try out different colors and sizes and post a comment below where we can see your finished work!
Sew two of the same size pieces of muslin together on three sides, leaving one end open.
Turn right side out.
Sew channels from bottom edge toward open edges stopping about 1″ from opening. The number of channels is up to you.
Optional step: Mix rice with essential oil drops of your choice.
Fill chambers about halfway full of rice. Long grain works well.
Turn open edges to inside, pin together and sew 1/4″ seam, closing the “pillow”.
Make a pillow casing for your pad. Flannel works well.
Heat pad in the microwave using 1 minute increments until desired temperature of rice is achieved. DO NOT OVERHEAT.
Place inside casing and Enjoy.
