Heat Pack!

  1. Fold the material in half with right sides together
  2. Sew two of the sides so that three sides are closed and one smaller end is left open. In other words, if it is folded, sew the bottom and the long side so that it becomes a tube that is roughly 30 cm long by 15 cm with one 15cm side open.
  3. Turn the bag inside out so that the rough ends are hidden.
  4. Fill the tube with rice until it is about 2/3 full.
  5. Fold the remaining side in so that the rough ends are hidden.
  6. Sew the top of your bag together and now your heat pack is ready for winter!

NB: As a precaution, you can set a cup of water inside along with it to add moisture during the heating process.

What You Need:

  • Bag of white rice (might not all be used)
  • A 30cm by 30cm square piece of material. We have used old pillow cases.
  • Thread
  • A sewing machine or a needle

      Hi Shelley! Unfortunately we’ve only got limited spaces in our audience, and we’ve filled up all our spaces until the 25th of September, but there still are spaces available there, so if you jump over to http://whatnow.tv/audience/ you can still grab spots for those dates!
