Hot Pockets ~ Microwavable Rice Bags

0415151022-00

I love the rice pocket heat pack my daughter Emilie made and let me use while I was visiting her. I used it every night behind my neck and then under my lower spine. After a few days, my muscles weren’t painful anymore, and that’s BIG!

I decided to make my own, because I knew I couldn’t live without one, and then I made one for a friend in Belgium who has been sick and could probably use the comfort, just like I did. Now I’m making them for all my friends, and sending them without the rice, because it’s too heavy to mail.

Directions:
1. Cut two pieces of fabric to the shape you want.
2. Sew wrong sides together on 3 sides.
3. Sew rows an inch or so wide.
4. Fill rows with rice (not too full, so it is more flexible)
5. Sew open end closed.
6. Heat in microwave for 1 minute.
7. Wrap in a thin cloth if too hot for your skin,
and enjoy!
