this might be a silly question... but if you make one with corn and then leave it in the microwave for too long...do you get popcorn?  Cheesy
You should use field corn I think it's also known as deer corn, or feed corn. It doesn't pop. Grin

I have one of these, but it is U shaped to go aroung your neck.  I love it for cramps, but I put it on my back instead of my tummy.  I should make a rectangular one instead.

Thread Necromancy!

My Minty Rice Heating Bag is still amazing.
My Husband loved it so much I made him one filled with rice and oats.
His is longer and rectangular so that it fits across his shoulder and neck.

Very cool and very useful little things!

I hope anyone that made their own loves it as much as I do!

I'm curious how thick and how heavy these are?  Is one type of filling significantly lighter than others?  I'd like one for my cramps, which I feel through my back.  Currently I use an electric heating pad and completely disregard directions by sleeping on top of it or tucking it under my t-shirt so I can sleep on my side, too.  But it's hazardous and probably wasteful of energy so if I could make one of these thin enough to be comfortable and stiff enough to hold it's shape while I laid on my side then I'd like to switch over.  I have the hot water bottle cover that my mom made for me when I was a kid, but think a hot water bottle would be too thick to have under my back when laying on my back.
