Week 11– April 29 – May 5, 2012 – Rice Heading Pad

Oh, what a wonderful project this is.  These little bags are easily constructed and then filled with regular rice.  Heated in the microwave for just a minute or two then placed where needed to provide comfort.  Use as you would a regular heating pad but without the hassle of a cord.  And the longer ones can be wrapped around a knee or ankle and give warmth to the entire joint.  A couple of these are backed in cozy flannel to provide a soft fabric next to your skin.  Plus, if you keep one in the freezer you can also use it as an ice pack.  How cool is that?!
