Rice Heating Pad
I found a cool tutorial on how to make a rice heating pad. I really need one because this third trimester (I am 29 weeks pregnant today!!!!) is wrecking havoc on my back!! And after making this, I REALLY needed one!!
I used the material that I already had (as you can see from my last project). I had some older brown jasmine rice from Trader Joe's that I forgot that I had in the back of my cabinet. It was probably still good, but I am weird about keeping any food longer than a month...strange...I know. I also decided to add a few drops of scented essential oils onto the rice pockets. Well...I think I added tooooooo much oil because my house is completely scented of Bath & Body Work's Stress Relief Eucalyptus Spearmint!! It just seemed to poor out of the bottle...next time I will be more careful &
only add a drop or two into the rice!
Now, I have to be honest, I didn't really follow the instructions to the tutorial. I probably should have. I just looked at the picture & went from there. It was pretty easy to make. It only took me like....2 hours!!!! It should not have taken me that long had I followed the instructions. I made a lot of newbie mistakes. Like I have said before, I am new to this & just trying to figure out the hows & whys to sewing. I still can't figure out why my thread keeps getting caught in the bobbin dungeon!!
I am happy with how it turned out, mistakes & all!!! In fact, I am using it now....I needed it!!!
