    Did you follow a pattern or make your own? I've tried two different patterns and wasn't happy with them. I really like the cover you show. I'm trying to get 10 of these done before Xmas.

    Frugal - I'm using extra clean dear corn from Academy Sports (walmart & other places have it too). 40lbs for $6.

    I saw patterns online,and figured I could wing it.

    I sewed 4 minky strips 3 in long, cut 15 in, then attached another block of 4 to the first.

    I stuffed some with rice and peppermint oil, buckwheat and almond oil, and some with flax that was run thru a dehydrator to remove oils before stuffing.

    I lined the inside with kona scrap, and then made the pillowcase end. There is a small strip of velcro on the inside, and you heat the rice/buckwheat for 2 min and the flax for about 1.5 min.
