I thought I'd share a little about the Hot/Cold Rice Packs and how I made them. =D
First I purchased several Kitchen Towels from Dollar Tree & Dollar General for $1. I cut up 1/2 into 2 pieces by folding it in half and cutting along the center line. Then I used fat quarters to make the back section. Sewed a 1/4" seam all the way around except for a 2" section so I could turn it right side out and fill with the rice. Before you fill the pack with rice sew another 1/4" seam all the way around the pack to make it look more finished and make it more sturdy. =D
Step 1: Infuse the Rice
I bought the largest bag of Rice I could find at Walmart, poured 1/2 in a large bowl and then dropped about 5 drops of Simply Aroma Lavender Essential Oil, mixed it with my hands, covered it with Saran Wrap (Plastic Wrap) and let it rest for about 1 hour,
Step 2: Fill the cloth bag 1/2 full with infused rice and then sew up the area left open for filling the pack. At this point you can sew down the center - be sure to split the rice in the bag in half so half is on each side of that center seam. It will create 2 chambers and keep your rice from bunching up on one side of your bag.
