Rice Filled Heating Pads

One of my goals for 2019 is to make a Non-quilty project between quilts.  Here is my first for the year:  Rice Filled Heating Pads.  If you don’t know about these, they are wonderful.  Just rice in a bag, basically, heated briefly in the microwave. Warm, weighty, soothing and non-electrical.DSC01357










Thanks to Sew4Home for this fine tutorial: https://sew4home.com/projects/pillows-cushions/microwavable-rice-filled-heating-pads

I especially like the fill directions.  My first thought was to pour from the side and somehow make it all close up nicely…this is much better.

Two cozy pads of different sizes to fit the need.

If you are not familiar with Sew4Home, consider stopping by for NON-quilting tutorials and projects of all kinds.

Ah, sweet feeling of comfort and…Success!

  1. Hi Deanna! I haven’t made one of these, but I have enjoyed them. I have two at home and one at work. Ahh, just the nice warm, kind of steamy heat feels so good on a stiff neck or the sort. Thanks for sharing the link – it sounds like a good to know go-to. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. I use feed corn as it stays hotter longer on my neck. I also put a pyrex measuring cup filled with water in the microwave with it. The bag will not scorch and the fabric lasts a lot, lot longer.

  3. I’ve been making these for years. Best way to relieve sinus headache pain. I use muslin for the bag and then make a removable, washable cover out of flannel. A couple of drops of eucalyptus oil on the bag before heating aids in the sinus drainage. Lavender oil is good for relaxation.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. It is nice to hear from you.
