I bought some fabric the other day, the first time in a long time that I have done that. I went to SAS, a sort of remnant and discount fabric store and could not resist these gorgeous prints.
I decided to make patchwork heating pads as gifts for family.
They were made with hard red wheat berries and are scented with peppermint and lavender essential oils.
Then I made separate bags for the wheat berried and patchwork cases that can be taken off and washed if needed. I added cotton twill tape at the ends as closing ties which is better than Velcro in the microwave.
They are 20 x 7 inches and fit perfectly around the neck and shoulders. Now I need to make myself one!
