Microwavable Heating Pads

Microwavable Heating Pads

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.
  • Is anybody out there?
