This step by step tutorial with pictures shows how to easily make a hot/cold pack with a removable cover that you can wash. You could easily make a few of them in an hour. You only need 1/4 of a yard of fabric and some rice for each one."

I made one something like this on the fly one time, but I didn't make a cover for it - wish I would have! Now I need to pay attention and make a good one by following instructions. It's a great help for aches and pains of any kind and would make an awesome gift for almost anyone.

This is a life saver in the winter months. I have made rice packets in many sizes. For my larger ones, I filled my bag half full of rice and sewed the end closed, then did a quilt style sewing through the bag to hold the rice in little pockets. I used the rice bags on my back and the smaller ones on my hands. So much safer to use at bed time then a heating pad and you save energy. I heat the larger ones for about 2 1/2 minutes on high and it last around 4 hours under the blankets. The smaller ones last about a hour when heated for about a minute.. I can't go with out my rice bags that I have had fro about 4 years now. Just make sure you don't get them wet or they will mold. I have never put mine in the freezer, because I like the moist heat.. Thank you for sharing this free craft idea that I've used for years.
