Oh my gosh I can’t tell you enough. These rice bags are the bomb. Not just for the cold winter months to use as heat-packs but I’ve also seen them used as ice-packs and aromatherapy. How awesome is that a 3 in one DIY. SWEET!!! I remember these rice bags from when we were kids. I grew up in Alaska and I gotta tell ya 60 Below Celsius doesn’t feel really good. COLD FEET was all we had and us kids grew very found of our moms inventive little rice warmers during the winter months.
Last Christmas I made these for all my neighbors and they absolutely loved them. That’s when I found out that you could also use them as ice-packs because one of my neighbors were talking about it. You know it ain’t good unless your kids love it, and guess what?!!…;) My little cuddle bug asks for one every night. 😀

This isn’t a super hard project. It only takes me about 15 minutes to make one and I love how inexpensive they are. You could go with any cotton fabric. I used linen. I would stay away from leather or the faker fabrics that have a lot of polyester because you don’t want it to melt in the mcirowave. OH and MAJOR factor… you will need a microwave to heat these packs. I know that we didn’t always have one growing up. Mom went through eating healthy phases and she’d toss it out ,but then give it a few months and Dad would buy a new one ..:) lol.
I had so much fun making these. YES I even went out into our little forest and brought home some treasures. I love weird props 😉 Mother nature definitely didn’t let me down 😉
