Homemade Heating Pad


(4 Votes)


This easy-to-sew Homemade Heating Pad is an amazing little invention. This pad is a relaxing way to help your family members who are not feeling top notch. Perfect for sore muscles or headaches, this easy DIY project will only take about half an hour to create. You can fill it with rice, scents, pits, or a lovely combination. This would be a great thing to add to a care package for a friend who is suffering from a mean sinus infection or migraine.

Homemade heating pads are easy to sew and so worthwhile to have on hand. A basic sewing tutorial for beginners is offered. I like the fact that this heating pad is segmented so that the filler rice or cherry pits mentioned, will stay put and not travel from one end of the pad to the other.

My hot water bottle leaked, had that thing for a good 15 years. Thinking I need to make a few for heat and cold. Interesting to read of cherry pits. I have 3 cherry trees so finding pits isn't a problem around here

This pattern seems to have been designed with me in mind. My husband and I are definitely at an age where we have multiple aches and pains. And I'm happy to say that I think I could manage to sew this even with my limited sewing skills and experience. Thanks for the clear instructions.

As someone who suffers from migraines, I think I need this ASAP. Some soothing peppermint essential oil combined with this is sure to make me feel better when I have headaches.
