I made a pattern for a neck-roll/heat-bag for my daughter's friends, birthday who just happens to LOVE spiders!!! The spider and rose are on the cover so it can be taken off the heat-bag and washed.

Love - you've inspired me to make one soon.

I love this project and the designs you've chosen to use. The thread colors are so nice against the neutral fabric. I think this is a good idea for another neck pillow. You said you made your pattern. Is it a collar you just adapted? You have given me another idea, for a 'trip gift' project. This might not require as much stuffing, as the ones I posted in Community/Sewing. Thank you for showing us and don't you just love how we all share and inspire!-Toogie

ps. the emb library link didn't work for me.

Hey Toogie (hoping you see this here) when I saw Patchwork's post, it reminded me that I'd promised myself to make one after a flight this year where I so saw many people simply wearing them around their necks in the airport (so they don't take valuable carry-on space). I bookmarked this easy YouTube video plus pattern .

I just made the pattern up but using a collar pattern would be good. Just make it plenty large enough.
I put the link to the Spider Web in comment above. Christine

Yes I used rice and was going to put a bit of lavendar but sometimes that can be overpowering so I didn't. Christine

Excellent piece and perfect placement. Beautiful!

What a beautiful job you have done Chris, I love the final outcome. Love Chris

yikes, it is a gift she will love & a really good idea too ~hugs~

by pennyhal2 14 Sep 2016

That's a very creative use of those designs. Not many people like spiders, so it was great of you to make something she could not buy! Thanks for the photo that show how you made it. They are helpful in understanding how you made this project.

Well that is the only way I could stand to have a spider on my neck. Cute gift.

by maggiecal 14 Sep 2016

Neck rolls are so useful - she'll love it.

Nice Work! You have done an excellent job with this/Lillian

by glob69 14 Sep 2016

Very pretty! I can't image why she loves spiders but the design you came up with is amazing. Hugs

by laffma1 14 Sep 2016

Well done. The design is quite elegant, even though spiders are not one of my favorite things. What did you fill the bag with to make it heat up (rice, or another grain, or something else entirely)?

I put rice in. It always seems suitable. Christine
