    I made some last month with a couple of wool sweaters that I felted. These are easy enough for young kids to make for themselves. :)

    If you are going to make a bunch of them for hand/foot warmers, buy feed corn at the feed store…you don’t need nearly as much to fill them and it works very well…and smells better than the rice does. BUT, if you want them for a cold pack, I think rice works better…have to admit that I made a ton of these for a craft bazaar (fail!) so I’ve tossed a bunch in the freezer and they’ve been great for my recent shoulder surgery and for my husband’s recent wrist sprain.

    My daughter and I made these over the weekend. She had a great time filling in the rice! This was an easy, fun project and they really work!

    I make large ones with the deer corn for bed warmers; four minutes in the microwave, and they stay warm all night!

    I made some like these for Christmas this year. They were so simple. I work with a bunch of guys in Construction. It was a perfect gift for them!!
