When we first moved into our house we weren’t prepared for our fist winter using wood heat. Of course, necessity is the best teacher and we learned quickly. But, those first few nights our bedroom, which is the furthest point from our wood stove, was a little chilly. On one such night my sweet husband filled a sock with some rice, warmed it in the microwave and placed it at the foot of the bed to warm up my feet. Because if your feet are nice and toasty it makes all the difference.
Right after we got home from my husbands surgery I realized we hadn’t improved on the idea of that old sock, and we where in need of some rice bags. So, I quickly ran to my sewing machine with this wonderful tutorial from my favorite lady, Lori @ Bee in My Bonnet, and put together some.
After you see how she puts them together it’s easy to make any size you need. She does large ones and even some small ones for putting in a pocketed scarf, that I am hoping to recreate soon. They are very versatile and can be used as cold packs too.
Every house needs hot/cold rice bags and now our is equipped with ones to soothe daddy’s aches, warm mommy up and one to throw in the freezer for all my busy toddlers boo boos.
