    Re: Heating Pad

    I had a neck pad that I won at a party, I don't know what it was filled with, but it had herbs in it also. The herbs, when warmed, would release a relaxing scent, must of been lavender. This one was made of cotton cut into a u shape and it had a cover, in the same shape, that had a velcro closure. This way, you could take the cover off and wash it.
    Right now, I'm a rice-in-a-tube sock girl.
    I love these pads. I am planning one, with a cover, that will go a little longer down my back, around the shoulders and neck.

        If you ask her, she may tell you how she made it.

              Be careful with the walnut shells. Folks with peanut allergies might have a serious issue.
              I use rice in mine. Cotton fabric and thread.

                i have used a hand towel and also cotton fabric when making. Have filled using either rice or wheat. When warming be careful to not over heat as you can scorch the filling

                  I've made a ton of these. I use leftover fabric or fabric that I don't like and rice. They are used nightly to warm my feet so I can fall asleep and they last for a year or so before needing replacing. I also use them for aches and pains but at least nightly. You can make them any size you want. Charm squares make nice hand warmers for the winter. They make great gifts too. Last year our office was very cold so I made one for everybody to help combat the cold. They still love them.
