thanks for bringing this to our attention In Australia we call them wheat bags as we fill them with wheat and heat in microwave

Here in Texas we use deer feed, since the grains are bigger they hold heat longer than rice.

Thank you so much!

These are great, Jerrilyn!! I've made these before, and make my covers like a little pillowcase, I like the idea of the fold-over cover. And there's also a PDF of instruction cards you can download and print, no need to make your own, wow!! Thanks for the tip! Marji

I love it! My sister has made the heat pads in a variety of sizes, (minus the darling embroidery!), but she uses flax seed as the filler. Thanks for sharing this link! Hugs!

Thanks Jerrilyn, this is very usefull.

by workbecky 03 Dec 2008

Thanks for the suggestion. I have taken an old sock and filled with rice but this makes a much prettier gift. hehehe :)

by meganne 03 Dec 2008

Oh Yes I have several of these, well at least I have made soft fluffy covers for my various (purchased) heat pillows, having the covers means you can heat the pillows up a little hotter, so that it stays hot longer. Trouble is, when you over heat them they can supposedly catch fire, especially if filled with wheat or lavender. I like my hot water bottles better except they're not as flexible. LOL!

Making the whole thing would be a great idea but an added bonus would be to add extra length so that you could tie or velcro the ends together to keep them in place. I also have one of these and it is great to put around the neck and still be able to have both hands free.
hope this gives people even more ideas ....
Thanks for sharing Jerrilyn. we don't see you here much lately, busy preparing for Christmas???
hugs n roses, Meganne

by americangirl 03 Dec 2008

Thanks for the gift idea. These are nice.

by mops Moderator 03 Dec 2008

Great idea. I once got one as a gift, but the cover is not removable, so it's getting grubbier and grubbier. I like to warm me feet with it. Mine is filled with a mixture of wheat and lavender. Thanks for sharing.

by blhamblen 03 Dec 2008

Great Idea....I made some filled with dried field corn (Illinois of course) they seem to stay warmer longer. My whole family got one ane they are nice just when ya have a lil chill in the ol bones. THANX
