    I was at a craft show that was selling different sizes of these warming pads and I asked what he filled them with and it was crushed wheat I bought some at a bulk food store and made some warming pads . The wheat seemed to hold the heat longer (maybe my imagination)

    Rice is probably the one of the least expensive alternatives.

    how much rice did it call for? stuffed tightly or just enough? I have one with rice (purchased) and love it. however i did think of making one that came down the front a bit longer.

    Put ALL rice in the freezer for a minimum of 3 days immediately when bringing it home from the store.

    Wise words from my 7 year old niece: "Aunt Laura, you must think you can't have too much fabric like a pizza can't have too much cheese." Well said, Gracie!

    The rice bags work great. Never had a problem with mine. I have had for several years.

    My niece makes these and uses barley in hers. She has had great success with hers. I am going to make one shortly.

    I've made these using rice, lavender buds (bought in bulk), a bit of cedar shavings and find that this mixture keeps away bugs as well as leaving a lovely scent. I even make tiny bags of this mixture without the rice to stick in among my fabrics. You can also add cloves and/or eucalyptus.
