    A friend at work wanted me to make her some rice bags.
    I made 2 for her and 1 for me.
    The first picture is the rice bag and the second picture is the covers
    i make to go on them. I like to be able to wash the cover when i want to.

    I love rice bags. They came in handy these past few weeks for pain relief. I keep three in the freezer and a couple in the drawer to heat in the microwave.


    The ones in the freezer are shaped like a "U" to wear on the neck and shoulder area. They work great to reduce a fever or cooling off on a hot day.

    Neat idea to make a cover.

    great fabrics, love the brightness of them.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Never thought of making washable covers. Thanks for sharing.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Using flax seeds also make wonderful bags. The smaller seeds conform so gently to the curves of a hurting body or if your just plain cold. A good warmer upper. All you need to do is double seam so the little seeds don't escape. And they smell so nice! Sort of a nutty scent. My family has called the Flax Babies for years and years now.

    I have beans in mine. They smell funny for a few months, but then the smell goes away with use. I put mine in the microwave for 99 seconds for about a cup of beans. Microwaves do not all act the same, so you'll have to experiment.

    I buy flax seed at the bulk food store run by Mennonites. It's much cheaper that way. I think the kinds are dark or golden, buy don't know the difference, and don't think it makes any difference.
