So here in Tennessee, it's been really cold. Like REALLY cold!
Even though I grew up in Utah, I have lived here in the South for 10 years and I'm acclimating.
So I've been freezing!
One thing I love to warm up with is a rice bag.
When this simple bag of rice is heated in the microwave, it's thaws my frozen toes. I love it!
Here's how you can make one too.
Start with a piece of fabric. I found this remnant at Joann with the pattern of my fave girl!
I cut it down to about 8" by 10" or so.
Then I sewed a seam all the way around...
leaving a couple inches open at the bottom.
I don't have a funnel so I just folded some paper into a funnel.
I stuck the make-shift funnel into the hole I left while sewing, and filled it up with dry rice.
I couldn't take a picture of this since my hands where busy holding the fabric
and funnel with one hand and the rice with the other.
I sewed up the hole with a simple whip stitch.
To heat: just pop it into the microwave for 1:30- 2 minutes.
And there you have a toasty rice bag to warm up your toes!!
PS- it also works really well for aches, sore muscles and girl monthly pains.
