You know those cold winter nights that you just can not get warm? Rice packs are the answer!All you have to do is pop them in a microwave for 3 minutes, flip them over and heat for another 3 minutes ( do not over heat). They stay warm a long time. I love to use mine when my legs ache or if I have a stiff neck. Oh, and during those times of the month that the lower back aches…you can't beat a warm rice pack.
These can even be kept in the freezer for when you need an ice pack.
These are SO easy to make and are perfect gifts for anyone! If you buy your rice in bulk (Sams) they are fairly inexpensive.
Sew together like a pillow case, about 8"x10" or whatever size you want. Sew 3 seams to make 3 compartments, fill each compartment 2/3 with rice; add a few drops of essential oil if desired, cloves are good, although most people do not like scented packs. Fold open end in and sew.
This one is to lay on the eyes; good if you have a sinus headache or migraine.
Use masculine fabric for the guys.
These are also great for warming cold feet on a winter's night. )
I have sold dozens of these for $10 each.
