How to Sew a Heating Pad

"This heating pad could be a life saver! This is perfect for draping across your lap, shoulders or wherever youd like it. It wont fall off because the rice shifts around. And, the smell is great because I added a few drops of essential oils to the rice before filling them."

Having made several rice filled microwave style heating pads and given them away as gifts I know how useful they can be to soothe a sore neck, an injured joint, or even just to warm the bed covers on a frosty evening. I have found that using terry cloth fabric makes for wonderful and long lasting heating pads. Just takes a few short minutes to heat up, depending on the size of the pad.

I Love this heating pad with essential oils. I got one from a craft show years ago and it was wonderful. It had something in it to make muscles feel great and it smelled great. I did not know if it was rice or not. I lost it and was looking for one. Now I can make my own. I see you used Lavender. Can anyone suggest what else to use? Thanks for this wonderful tutorial.

What are the heating instructions?
