I actually did some sewing today! Woo hoo!! Years ago I used to make wheat packs and sell them at work.. pre children. But compared to the ones you see these days, mine were very plain and boring - but they worked. I haven't had much luck buying wheat here and the last lot I bought from a dodgy pet store was filled with weevils - ew! So these ones are filled with rice (and a few drops of lavender oil).
I got inspired by this one, tutorial here. I didn't follow the tutorial but liked the look, so created one of my own. I have a dear friend who has had a really sore back for the last few months and I have been planning to make her a heat pack.
Here's the one I made for her
The outer bag is removable so it can be washed and the inner I have divided in two so it wraps around easier.
Of course Little Miss Sunshine saw and she said 'ooo Mum make me one, it has to be pink and blue'...... half an hour later... here's her one..This one also has a seperate inner but I have sewn the closure shut.
Then Sonic decided he wanted one but it had to have cars on it
this was a bit of a disaster but he was happy
My big two had haircuts this morning, I love Little Miss Sunshine with her hair this short - so cute for an almost 9 year old! The hairdresser had nearly finished Sonic's hair and he asked if she had finished, she said 'not quite I'll just put some wax in it', Sonic said 'uh, I dont know' She said,' but it will make it look all spiky'. So she put it in and he said, oh I thought you meant ear wax!! hehehe
