Rice Heating Pad

My coworker Elbie asked me to make him a microwaveable rice heating pad so I did!

He offered to pay for it, but I refused because 1) it is for the healing wrist he broke at my birthday party* and 2) it is made with inexpensive materials I had on hand.

This microwaveable heating pad has rice encased in a muslin pouch and a speckled grey drawstring cover. I finished the edges of the muslin pouch with a double seam and trimmed using pinking shears. The drawstring cover has french seams (possibly my favorite type of seam) and uses cotton yarn for the string.

Elbie, I hope this helps sooth any wrist pains you are having!

*I went rollerskating for my birthday and invited Elbie and his family. He ended up falling a number of times and had a sore wrist once we left. It turns out he broke a dead bone in his wrist and needed surgery to replace it. My birthday parties are hardcore!
