The last of my bag making flurry--three little lavender heat pack bags. Nice Mom-In-Law made us one similar to this a few Christmases ago, and now Sweet Husband and I fight over it in the winter. It was time to make a few extras.
They're just little pillows, monogrammed on the front before I sewed them together. I filled them about three-quarters of the way full using a mixture of one part dried lavender to about three parts long-grain rice (not the quick cook kind). They still smell a little bit rice-y, but the lavender does come through. (I'm actually thinking about making a few with mint as well.) In addition to being useful when it's cold, one felt very nice on my headache last night!
