Homemade Rice Heating Pad

DIY Heating Pad Instructions

  1. Line your two fat quarter fabric sheets on top of each other. Cut off the salvage edge if you have one. 

  2. Fold the sheets in half right sides together. 

  3. Sew from one corner all the way around until you are about four inches from the end. Stop there, do a back stitch, skip two to three inches, and back stitch again. 

    Tip: For this project we used a quarter inch seam allowance, but you just need to make sure you keep it consistent.

  4. Clip the corners of your fabric, and turn your project inside out. 

  5. Make yourself a little funnel using a piece of paper, or use an actual funnel if you have one handy. 

  6. Fill your bag with dried rice. 

  7. Add three to four drops of essential oil and shake it around, making sure to keep your hole closed. 

  8. Tuck the edges of where your is together and sew over them. 

  9. Trim off all your little ends and shake it a little bit longer. 

  10. To Use: Heat it up in 15 second increments. Be sure that your pack is not wet or the bottom of your microwave, because you could run the risk of steam burning yourself.
