This is a small- eye pillow size- heat pad, stuffed chock full of rice that has been encased in the recycled sleaveof a ragged sweater in the inside to make sure the rice couldnt work its way out of the woven fabric.



The fabric is a blend of lots of misc. fibers, some handspun (my own, see the sig line) in mostly two plies or 2 plies, and some cottons and novelties.  Just a basic weave structure since it's pretty busy by itself.

Great idea for a bunch of mixed fibers!  Hmm . . . maybe I'll rethink what I do with my thrums.

annalou - I save all my thrums because I just can't bear to throw yarn away, especially if it is handspun Cheesy
I will definately give something like this a try sometime. My rigid heddle loom probably feels very neglected all naked and hanging on the wall  Grin
