I am putting these in here as I think it's probably the best place (They're pillow-like!). If not, Mods, feel free to move me.

So I will hopefully be flying to Sydney for my friend's birthday in a few days, provided this dang ash-cloud moves on, and I made her and her mother some gifts. Rice heat packs!

My lovely friend lives in an apartment by herself, and her mother decided to send me to her as a birthday present, so I am essentially getting a free flight. So, as a thankyou, I made her a matching heatsack, and got some chocolate, so she feels the love too. Using the gift-tags from http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2007/11/rice-heat-therapy-bag-tutorial/ , I adapted a pattern for my own use with some pretty fabrics!

Her mother's gift is the full one underneath the tiny roll. I've only got carry on luggage, so I can't take rice on the plane with me without getting strange looks. Instead, I am going to buy her a bag of rice when I get there for hers. Smiley

Although the link up above has the tutorial with it, I made mine smaller and longer, but using basically the same idea.

I hope you like it as much as I do Smiley

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo

Thanks both! Although, with the way this ash cloud is moving, I might end up having to post my friend hers. Let's hope my flight stays good!

Even though the last thing I want to think about right now is heat, these are super cute!
