DIY Neck Heat Pads


I take zero credit for these little babies.  Sew4Home gives an amazing tutorial and I just followed it.  That's it.  Well, I did make a few adjustments to fit my needs.  But that's it.  Really.

I followed the instructions to a tee the first time.  The bag came out great, but I thought it was a bit too big for me.  So, for my next try, I just cut the size down a little and created three compartments instead of two. I filled my bags with white rice and lavender buds.

 Here's the back . . . . loving on flannel.

 I've got a whole basket heading over to Robin's Egg tomorrow.  If you've got a sore neck, shoulders, back, or wherever, I've got the cure.  And they come in pretty fabric.  And they make fabulous gifts.  :)



  1. I love these. I made a couple a few years ago and made an envelope pocket so the outer shell could be washed and the plain inner shell is what held the rice. I love the pretty rick rack edging. :)

  2. Love it. I need me one of these. I'm always cold. :)

  4. Have had one for quite a while -- besides aches & pains... great for 'cold feet' -- just slip it under the covers when you are getting ready for bed; then leave it there!
