Well over a year ago, I made a few rice packs by following this tutorial I found on pinterest (I also made the drawstring pouch too.) I made one of the full sized ones like the tutorial. Plus a couple of mini ones that are just a little larger than each compartment. I love them. heated in the microwave or chilled in the freezer. They are great.
Thanks to a great clearance sale at connectingthreads.com recently, I stocked up on some flannel. Two yards. You know how many rice packs you can make with two yards? A LOT. I've made a couple more large ones for me (hello, icing the shins!) and now I'm working on some for BBWP. Her "whole me" gets cold a lot.
