I made a whole bunch of these for Christmas, but never took any pictures.  My coworker and some of my clients have requested some, so here's the latest batch I whipped up tonight.  The fabric on the top and bottom is unbelievely soft and fuzzy, and I made an outer lining (with velcro closure) so you can take out the flax-seed filled muslin pillow and heat it up in the microwave.  I'm including a note with them about safe use and care and cleaning.  What do you think?

Those are great!  Do you buy your flaxseed in bulk?  I've had difficulty finding it here in bulk other than at Whole Foods, and it is a bit pricey for multiple projects.  I may look for an online source.

I wanted to saaaaaay.... These look great.  I just got asked to make two for my IL friend and I feel clueless. Huh
Could I possibly ask you about the cover?? like how you make one with the velcro?

I created my own pattern, and it took some trial and error to get the measurements right for the side that has the velcro.  I need to make some more, so I'll take picture along the way and post a tutorial. Cool?

Thank you. I'd appreciate the help.  I've tried all week to make 2 for my IL friend but am struggling with the cover.  I did make him a nice longggg neck pillow but no.  He wants a round one.  Geezzzz, when you do a person a favor!!  Wish I could find fleece with a pattern on it. I so love your heart fabric.Thanks. Embarrassed
